Another rival to the clown crown falls to “natural causes.” So-called “natural causes.”
“I felt if I could plant my size 83AAA shoes on this planet,
(people) would never be able to forget those footprints,” he said.
Yes, one of the most prominent clowns in history, Larry Harmon, has died. Harmon, who played Bozo the Clown for most of the latter part of the Twentieth Century and could plausibly said to have been the first person of any description to clone a clown, is only the most recent in a string of mysterious clown deaths.
Larry Harmon, dead at 83.
Marcel Marceau, dead at 84.
Red Skelton, dead at 84.
Nicolai Poliakoff OBE, dead at 74.
Achille Zavatta, dead at 78.
One by one, the most prominent clowns in the world have been picked off, most succumbing to the blandly ubiquitous “natural causes,” and none living much past their 84th birthday.
The world shrugs, sighs, says “these things happen,” ah yes, but why do they always seem to happen to the rivals of one man? One man who is known to associate with hardened criminals. One man who has at his fingertips the very substances of which a heart attack is made?
One man, ladies and gentlemen. One man named Ronald McDonald.
Ah is true, Ronald ‘big’ Mac should be deleted for the good of mankind, and womankind.
(referred to the fact that blogging with you is also a learning experience, Rain. On the B-J blog)
Thanks for the plug! I shall have to look it up.
McDonalds is a force for evil. I think they put heroin in those McChickens, they’re so addictive.
Ban human clowning.
The big mac made him do it.
Hmmm, Ronald McDonald, maybe.
I suspect the Illuminati are involved, though
“One man, ladies and gentlemen. One man named Ronald McDonald.”
Wow a clown conspiracy. I should have known.
Ronald McDonald IS the head of the Illuminati. Duh.
I’m still not over my crushing disappointment at that headline turning out to have nothing to do with a Bush-Cheney hunting trip.
Not to mention other administration luminaries with the proper forehead: Karl Rove, Condoleeza Rice et al
So if Rock n roll has a “dead at 27 club” (Colbain, Morrison, Hendrix, Joplin, etc.)
Do famous clowns have a “dead- at- about- 84 club”?
show biz is so strange.
It doesn’t explain all those Friars Club roasts. Those people performed for King Tut!
Ah…maybe we’ve traced the clown-whacking conspiracy to its home point?
Great post! A book by Larry “Bozo” Harmon just released today actually… “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales”. Anyone in the Los Angeles area should come celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bozo the Clown at the book signing this weekend! http://lcoonline.wordpress.com/2010/08/17/come-celebrate-the-50th-anniversary-of-bozo-the-clown/
Thanks for the update! Interesting.
