Clowns

Let’s talk about clowns.

Seems strange that they’re still such a common part of the public consciousness. I don’t think clowns have been an actual thing in my entire lifetime (65 years today), yet they are regularly part of the modern discourse. For example, you rarely hear about Jesters.

Places keeping the clown concept alive:

  • McDonalds (though not even them anymore).
  • Hollywood

Why are clowns always there? Who has experienced a real-life clown?

Never really understood the fear of clowns. It’s just a guy in some funny makeup getting a pie in the face

The pie one is arguably the most violent. What does this say about you?

That is a very half-arsed clown

The hammer is the key thing with him

as long as the clowns are pieing each other i don’t mind
