BE FUNNY . . . OR ELSE
Two Clowns Shot Dead At CircusNow, to the facts, as reported by Reuters:
1. It happened in Colombia. Colombians shoot their own soccer players, so maybe this isn't so weird down there. Maybe clowning is a top-10 "dangerous job" in Colombia, up there with cocaine cartel chief, police officer, and soccer player.
2. Shakira, who own the title "Most Dangerous Ass On Earth," is Colombian. I'm not sure that explains anything about clowns getting shot at the circus, but it seems important.
(Oh, and before you google "Shakira most dangerous ass on earth," I warn you that the only hit sure to match your search will be to this blog.)
3. Most importantly, Police Chief Jose Humberto Henao assured the press that, "The killings had nothing to do with the show the victims were performing at the time of the incident."
This will surely come as a relief to all Colombian clowns who are considered "good" at what they do. Up-and-comers still working on their clowning skills, however, may be less assured.
