Not a lot of fun in that photo. I wish clowns were like they used to be… outsiders who had fun making fun of authority, not assholes confronting it.

Wow! Hop on over to the Agence France-Presse Twitter media feed for some really spectacular images! So very good . . .

Yea, this is excellent political theater, but crappy clowning. To me, that’s a fair trade; I never much liked clowns anyway.


#5

Which one is the cop? Looks like two clownsto me. :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

I’d hate to see what he does with balloon folding.


#7

Wearing blackface is never good clowning. Even with a red hockey puck strapped to the nose.


#8

Depends on the context. Very much depends on the context.

I find the cop’s garb to be really scary and over the top. Just wearing stuff like that is provocative - it gives the impression that it is necessary against the opposition - making the protesters look far more dangerous than they really are.

I have an irresistible urge to (as we say down here) mash his button nose.
