An Expected Standard

The Eight Clown Commandments.

6. I will do my very best to maintain the best clown standards of makeup, costuming, properties, and comedy.

I’ve never watched an episode but I assume this commandment could be the premise for the Kardashians TV series.

A standard of comedy
who decides that?
Surely a clown
with a head to big for his hat

That which I maintain
is that which I contain
Any expectation beyond this role
is thoroughly out of my control

“I’ve decided to be a hobo clown.”

“What’s that mean?”

“It means I have an excuse for my lower standards of hygiene, and a valid reason why I live on the street.”

Clown Fact:
The word clown is believed to come from the Icelandic word klunni, meaning a clumsy person.

Weekly Theme:
International Clown Week
August 1-7

      1. Good heavens M. I took your hint and looked in my spam. I had something from Brandi would you believe!? Thanked me for the free publicity.

        But here, get this. Loida apparently found Stan’s dig into a motor useful. Wonders will never cease. Maybe she’s got trouble with the lawnmower…..see M, Stan’s usefulness is in the eye of the beholder…..Amen Stan

      2. That reminds me. Must check my spam. Might be another message from Brandi?…..

        Billy’s asking why he and Brandi have suddenly come on the scene? What do I say M? I just shrug my shoulders and say dunno sonny….

      3. I just checked mine and I’m thinking of shutting down my comments for good 😂
        I’m guessing when I’m retired I’ll have a few people show up out of nowhere.


      4. I understand. You get a lot of comments. If you shut down comments I won’t be contributing anything as I need a person on the other end to respond if you follow. But I do see it from your end…..

      5. They are. Also starting to get harassed by a few people in the comments section.
        If I have to make cuts, I would prefer to read peoples work instead of their comments on my work.
