Working Clowns...

Labor Day is nearly over... that means summer is drawing to an end and we're heading into another season. The holidays are nearly upon us - but we'll get there when we get there. For now, enjoy some clowns at work...

One must get ready for the day. The makeup goes on, just so.

Dressing Room Only

Some clowns work the fences - not in person however. They'd dry up and blow away as dust from the boredom. So they have their picture taken, and then they're put up in strange places to remind you they exist - such as a random gate at a Coney Island circus.

Awww, come on bucko! Don't you want a... balloon?

Some clowns walk to work, because they don't want to use up precious resources.

Some clowns are out of work, but are willing to get things done - for a price.

Other clowns put themselves into danger every day, just to entertain people and help keep others safe!


As you wind down your labor day holiday, and think about all of the working folks in the world - don't forget the clowns. They work hard to make people smile and laugh, and deserve the same rights as everyone else. Equal pay, health insurance, and safe working conditions.

Happy Labor Day.


  1. This is my favourite post yet! Rodeo clowns are amazing.... what they do truly is dangerous and crazy.

  2. Thanks! I'll have to do a post dedicated to rodeo clowns. I'd like to visit some of the topics much more in depth. During the dark and dreary days of winter...
