The Constrained Clown

The Eight Clown Commandments.

7. I will appear in as many clown shows as I possibly can.


I’m in one right now
life is a great big clown show
no comic relief

Commitment to the commandments
Duty bound and bared
The rules and restrictions have left me
Feeling freedom impaired

Major issue with clown carpool:
The car broke down
Thirty seven of us are late

Don’t try to make everyone happy; you can’t. The only ones who try are clowns.

The Eight Clown Commandments.

8. I will be committed to providing an atmosphere free of discrimination and harassment for clowns of all ages to share ideas and learn about the art of clowning

You think you’re a clown, do you?
You think you can just make balloon animals?
You have to earn the right to make balloon animals
Now drop and give me twenty balloon hot dogs

C reate
L aughs loud enough to
O pen ears and
W elcome the
N ext generation of clowns
