Remember: rape is no laughing matter. Unless you’re raping a clown.

And especially if you’re raping a clown for peace.

A clown holding a cross at a peace rally. That's just strange on so many levels.

That's the difference between the right and the left.

A rightie sees a guy in a clown suit and he says to himself "hmm, a clown, where's the circus".

A lefties sees a guy in a clown suit and he says to himself "hmm, a man ready to give a serious political discourse, I better listen and take to heart what he has to say".

OMG, David Crawford, I was trying to figure it all out--and you did it for me!

I really enjoy reading this site, but right now I find I'm holding my nose.

I hate when that happens.

I may have to get some shirts from that website for a "white elephant" x-mas party...

Here are two additional photographs that didn't make the first edit. They show the Mimeclown's Interpretive Peace Dance, which was performed at the beginning of the proceedings. It's a shame the Braveheart face paint isn't visible in B&W:

There was a peace clown from Sydney,
Whose contribution to peace was rather piddly.
Waved a cross in the air
Shook it like he just don't care.
Net gain for Cubans, North Koreans, or other oppressed people, diddley.

I orally sodomized a clown once. The cops picked me up because I had his face imprinted on my groin. It taught me a lesson, though - the next time I went back-door on a mime.

Shocking and Salacious Street-theatre Scandal involving clown

Mr. Dingle may be laughing on the outside, but not on the inside.
The 30-year-old performance artist was picked up at the local peacenik circus and charged with the crime of committing blatant acts of interpretative dance.
Mr. Dingle broke down when approached by police and confessed immediately. "I can't help it," he sobbed. "I used to hold down a good and worthwhile job at the circus... it was wonderful, seeing the laughter and joy on those children's faces... but I can't go back now. I was abused as a clown, and ever since, I've had to take it out on others in the form of modern dance and street theatre."
Mr. Dingle will be charged with the crime of Avant-gardism and fined.

What sort of slogans do Peace Clowns shout?

"Ban the water bomb!"

"Bush lied, clowns got pied!"

Makes about as much sense as rioting for peace...something else the lefties do.

At least it's more fun than the old "bag over the face" ploy.

Clowns should not be at peace rallies. They should only be downfield at a target range and the occasional circus. On second thought, they really shouldn't be at circusses (circuci?) either.

There should be a special place in hell reserved for clowns and mimes.

Posted by: Anne at April 13, 2004 at 02:23 AM

JohnO - It's circuses, and I agree that they should be clownless. Peace rallies, OTOH, need clowns, if only to scare the bejebus out of impressionable peacenik toddlers.

In fact, clowns should only be found at peace rallies and rodeos, the two places where they may actually provide a service to society.

Is it wrong that this sexually arouses me?...

What does it say about a political movement when John Wayne Gacy's favorite costume plays such an integral part?
