It is a truth universally acknowledged that clowns really aren’t funny. However, some of them just gave up on the idea of “funny.” They saw humor, dodged around it, went straight to a 50% blend of apathy and disgust.
“You want funny? I’ll tell you funny. Funny is when you spend a year saving up for a motorcycle, then lose a leg when the Flying Fienman Bros say they’re trying a new human cannonball stunt and they need a test subject. That’s funny. Seltzer water is for chumps and rubes.”
