    The United States is Facing a Catastrophic Shortage of Clowns.

     
    "The NY Daily News weighed in the other day with a devastating report: The United States is facing a catastrophic shortage of clowns. According to the article, "Membership at the World Clown Association, the country's largest trade group for clowns, has dropped from about 3,500 to 2,500."

    I will admit: I am afraid of clowns. Always have been, always will be, so any article stating that there are less clowns, to me, constitutes breaking news on the level of "Man Lands On Moon." All apologies to my face-painted brethren, but good. Good good good. Less clowns = less fear = more happy.

    But here's the thing: The World Clown Association is, I think, drastically under-reporting its numbers. The planet, by my lights, is swarming with clowns: Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, Chris Matthews, Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Yoho, Ted Nugent, Sean Hannity, Rand Paul and fa chrissakes Louie Gohmert are all available for recruitment. Measure them for the big floppy feet and stuff them into the clown car. They're already doing the work."

    I agree with William Rivers Pitt. They should start recruitment in Washington DC-immediately!
