Disturbing! Reminds me of this story about a mom who encouraged little Jimmy to hand-feed a bear at Yellowstone or somewhere. The bear bit his hand off, though, instead of eating the mom.
Is there a part II to this story?
That's a terrible story.
Clowns, why do they hate us?
No one likes clowns. Ha ha ha doesnt like them, Johnny Depp doesnt like them, I dont like them, no one I know likes them. Why do we still admit them into our lives? it reminds me of the bit in the introduction to einsteins monsters by martin amis where he talks about nuclear weapons being like 70-foot tall bodyguards around a childrens tea party and to make them go away all theyd have to do is turn around and ask but theyre too scared. Only clowns instead of nuclear weapons.
Ha Ha Ha did NOT say he disliked clowns, merely that they ate his parents.

For all we know part deux will be called 'Dr. Ha: How I learned to stop worrying and love the clowns'
Morris Men are also terrifying. Special forces clowns.
good point, jtp. i will try not to make wild assumptions in future.
1. Why are clowns evil? There must be a PhD thesis or two on this somewhere. Cultural studies or cultural anthropology, probably.

2. Mr HA, it's contagious. I'm starting to type like you. I've had to backspace so many times to type this comment "correctly".
jtp an askamo i dont hate cloweans. i acept em as a naturel part of life like old age or whatevar.
