Look this is the story about the death of another individual so I am asking that instead of acting like the blackhearted heathens of the world perhaps we can do the moment to do the mourning for this individual. You know like think that this is a person who had the family. By gawd this clown had the family of he! Perhaps instead of sitting here and making the fun of this poor individual you could do something productive such as bringing the flowers to the funeral of he, walking up to the family members, and then having the flowers do the squirting of water! LAUGHTER OL because this would do the respecting of the career of this man. Or perhaps if this is the open casket you could walk up to it and begin doing the pulling out of a scarf from the mouth of this man. Oh wait is that the magician? Well that would then be awkward but you could make the balloon headstone because I bet that the family would love this so much. Maybe even bring the large nose and wear this at the funeral. So yes instead of being the asses about the death of this man perhaps do things that can provide the tribute.

I will try to design the sympathy e-Card upon which we can all do the signing of.

Sorry of the death of the family member of you.
We know he liked to do the clowning around.
Do not worry, for he is not gone, he is in the shower of you now!

John: But this is the Rex Mars Atomic Discombobulator. Don't you just love the graphics on this box?
Homer: No. How can you love a box, or a toy or graphics? You're a grown man.
John: It's camp!
[Homer stares nonplussed]
The tragically ludicrous? The ludicrously tragic?
Homer: Oh, yeah. Like when a clown dies.

Ever wake up laughing and not know why? And you look over and there, next to you in bed is a clown.

Alas, poor Blasetti! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest,
of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times;
and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is!
My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft.
Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs?
Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?

I don't know if that couple were regular performers with the parade, But I do know that for many clowns, getting a chance to participate in the Macy parade is like a High holy honer of the clown gods.

The moment could've been the culmination of a long and loving life of making people laugh. They get the big chance and tragedy strikes. I will admit, the room got dusty for me just reading it and it reminded me of the time I got dragged out of work on a stretcher.

I had a panic attack.. I had never had a panic attack up to that point and I had no idea what was going on with my body, for the life of me I thought I was having a heart attack and was rushed out of there.

My wife actually beet the ambulance to the hospital, when I saw crying, I couldn't help but cry myself thinking I was leaving her alone, and I could only Say... "I'm sorry".


For that home, there will be an empty seat at the table for Christmas Dinner this year..

I've been to one of those Macy's parade things and it can get really hot and tiring in there. The sun burns you and there's so much people it gets hard to breathe. If you're an older person with a prior heart problem, you're in big danger if you come here.

So, in the middle of a crowd of people, an older woman is pounding on the chest of her just dead husband. And they're both dressed as clowns.

How do you go on to enjoy the parade after that?

You know what would make a good story? Something about a clown who make people happy, but inside he's real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea.

Are their Children in Clown Heaven? Nope.

How could it be heaven for the clowns if there aren't any kids? I'm thinking clown heaven is kid hell. Symbiotic.
