    At least the acrobats can apply to Cirque du Soleil.

    To get food, he should have a sign that says, “Please throw pies at me.” Who could resist?

    If I were destitute, I’d have a sign saying “willing to be seen in a VW for food”.

    The tentmakers union has folded and the calliope factory has gone silent… all because of those clowns at Ringling Bros.

    There was an article in our paper about the closing of the circus. One of the clowns said that he would get within ten feet of the audience and see all the children with their faces lit up…by their smart phones. He knew he’d lost them.

    This is sure timely, with the Barnham and Bailey circus just closing for good last week.

    Good news though. Open auditions for the lead role in “It”.

    Rat speaks the truth today. It was just Sunday evening that Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey circus put on its very last performance. and now its clowns are out of or looking for work.

    No more clown-ocide! Clowns are almost human!

    Pastis would make the same amount if the subject of the strip was something else.

    If the entire town population gave that poor clown food, that Volkswagen would have as much food as a restaurant!
