Clowns (P366D21)

No, I’m not talking about fidiots that we call clowns…I’m talking about real clowns:  white face paint, red noses, big shoes, colorful clothes/jumpsuits.  While their antics are funny, silly, and crowd-pleasing, one-on-one and up close, they are creepy, grotesque caricatures of people.

Ruggero Leoncavallo turned a clown into a jealous husband turned murderer in his most famous opera, Pagliacci.


Hollywood seems happy to feed the creepy, crazy clown image, too.
