    a clown held a door open for me once. i thought ‘ what a nice jester’
    although they can be violent too. if you’re ever attacked by a gang of clowns, always go for the juggler.

      Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other “Does this taste funny to you?”

    Some joke about a clown and a nun. Can’t remember it apart from the punchline. ‘Verging on the ridiculous’

    Being from Enniscorthy there’s only person that could refer to; as many people know him by his clown persona as by his real name :)

    Saw “tears of a clown” and assumed this was about Gammon’s run for the EU Parliament. Alas.

    Bodger, when will the thread to end all threads start? Have Legal Coffee Drinker on retainer for the evening.
