All I know about clowns

Clowns are usually depicted as either playful symbols of innocent fun war creepy fright.

The comedy that clowns perform is usually in the role of a fool whose everyday actions and tasks become extraordinary, and for whom the ridiculous becomes ordinary.

Clowns have a long history in Egypt, China and Rome, where clowns were fools who entertain the kings and emperors. Often, the clowns are the only ones allowed to make fun of men in power. They provided an outlet for the public’s frustrations with their rulers.

But it was Joseph Grimaldi during the 1800’s in England, who began clowning as we would recognize it today.

That’s all I know about clowns. I don’t really know why I just wrote this post.

One thought on “All I know about clowns

  1. Volumes are “written” … Nothing threw me off. Anonymity no longer hides behind those faces.

    Want change to come? Use your personal power and force granted to you. Crowd mentality is ludicrous and extremely overrated. Setting a fine example will bring greater results, drive greater numbers toward your way of thinking,

    There are many Edward Snowden’s in this world, but there are an ever greater number of us that see the farcical in anonymous tactics.

    Anyone who has ever worked in secured industries sees a disgruntled, young man that wanted fame and fortune at his beck and call. It didn’t matter what he had to do to expose secrets. The young man simply felt entitled to uncover bits and pieces under innuendo. I hope he enjoys Siberia.

    I’ll steer clear from the crowd mentality.
