Today in Clown History


On March 12, 1980, Pogo the Clown, noted Democratic Party precinct captain and independent contractor, was convicted of murder.

One would think that John Gacy would have pretty much killed the use of "Pogo" as a clown name for decades after, but no. This freak has assumed the Pogo the Clown identity and is now getting his clown on in the U.K.

And we're stuck with the Republican killer clown until January of 2009, unless Congress gets a spine and impeaches him.

I am SO going to hire him for my birthday party.

Melinda, have you seen his striptease service?

Johnny, please--one clown at a time.

Hell, he was a precinct captain? Thank God he lived on the Harwood Heights side of Canfield (the forbidden busy street). Now that's a clown that will give me nightmares.

FYI, I'm really happy about your clown obsession.

CP, I have something special in the clown department for you and Katie Schwartz. Look for it soon.
