Clowns



Why are 21st century clown costumes still locked in appearing like homeless men from the 1920's and 1930's? What kid is going to every going to get that reference? And even if they did, who finds an alcoholism induced bulbous red nose and the look of dishevelled homelessness amusing anymore? This style of clown in based in a bourgeois elitist scheudenfraude. It's like going down to the Lower East Side and laughing at the crack-heads and heroin addicts.

you don't have to go as far as the east side for that anymore...it is strange you'd think that clowns would outlive their schtick some day...

I love that you used the word "scheudenfraude" on Live Journal. That just made my day :)

The word is so uncommon that if you Google it, this post already appears on the first page!

"What kid is going to every going to get that reference?"

Probably any kid that's met me after DJing a 2 day rave, or having spent more than 10 hours on a plane.

"who finds an alcoholism induced bulbous red nose and the look of dishevelled homelessness amusing anymore?"

Um... Me? And apparenly Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Giorgio Armani, and whoever does the purchasing for Eatons. Mind you, in the last case, I think they find it cool or something. heheheh.

Mind, it's not quite as amusing as track suits as evening wear, or the nearly universal "T-Shirt and Jeans on all occasions" thing that Vancouver men have going on. That... that's hysterical!
