Clown Uniforms: Then and Now
I don't know anyone who doesn't enjoy seeing a clown, well...a real one anyway! I remember when I was a kid they would always make me laugh.

The way they wore their clothes it was always funny. The way they acted that was funny too, but it was supposed to be! There was a time when one of the kids in my forth grade class had a birthday party and they hired a clown to come and put on a show for us. It was one of the funniest things I had ever seen.

There was the time I went to the circus and the clowns were there all over the place. Riding in little cars, riding on bicycles, falling down, chasing each other, shooting funny guns at each other you name it and they were doing it, and it was funny!

Looking back if I had to pick out one single thing that I thought made them funny, I would have to say it was the "uniform"! Without the uniform they were just grownups acting silly and silly is not always funny.


I have noticed more and more these days that there are a lot of clowns walking our streets. I have seen lots of them at the malls too. I have even seen them working at fast food restaurants and I have observed bunches of them down at the courthouse, I can only imagine what for!
I don't know if it is the slow economy or what, why so many clowns are out of work not doing what clowns normally do. Although these make me laugh too.


No matter where I see one they still crack me up. Now when I see one I point at them as I am laughing so they know they have earned someone’s laughter.


I'm sure that is what they want after all, isn't it? I have also noticed that the clowns of today are a lot like the ones of old like, riding in little cars, riding on bicycles, falling down, chasing each other, shooting funny guns at each other. You name it and they are doing it. But now they are doing it in our streets and ghettos and it's not for fun!


What would you expect when their role models they fashion their clothes-style from is that of an inmate in prison. Someone that has already been a failure to themselves in addition to their families and humanity! Yeah, that's who I'm gona look up to and say, "I want to be just like them!"


I'm sure you have seen many of these 21st century clowns although I have included a picture for reference. I don't know if you find these clowns funny but, excuse me while I laugh!
