Clowns



(Picture from Wikipedia)


Last night, took my 3-year old granddaughter to a birthday party of a 4-year old. To make the evening more lifely, there was a clown "in attendance". He was quite good in his profession. It is better than just inviting a magician. This clown was "3-in-one"! He was a clown, a balloon twister creating all sorts of shapes and animals, and a magician! Everyone enjoyed the evening, especially all the children. He was true to his trade.

The Real Clown.




Let's see what is technically a clown. This is from the Wikipedia:



"Clowns are comic performers, stereotypically characterized by their grotesque appearance: colored wigs, stylistic makeup, outlandish costumes, unusually large footwear, etc., who entertain spectators by acting in a ridiculous fashion. Types of their acts vary greatly."






So those are real clowns earning a living through their jovial profession. Making people laugh without offending or hurting others is really a very happy profession.






Enough of the real clowns. However, quite often we come across those who wish to imitate real professional clowns. And this is no laughing matter. But never mind, better come to more serious stuff.

What is more serious than matters of national interest. National interest is the domain of serious and dedicated politicians. In Malaysia Bolehland, we also have such outstanding politicians:

Those clowns in UMNO are low class unprofessionals buggers....not really clowns...but real thick skinned idiots..trying to act..not work....as elected by voters.
Throughout the centuries...clowns have kept alive the vital traditions of comedy....providing laughter for a wide and varied audience...that included both children and adults.
There are clowns on stage..circus ring...jester to the King and people...mime clowning...stand up clowns..just to name a few.
In modern days..USA produces most famous clowns from the few Legendary circus....managed by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus..welknown...throughout the world.
"HOBO" ..the clown is most famous.
Then..you have comedians...like Charlie Chaplin...Jerry Lewis...Bob Hope.....and many more...that copied them.
To conclude...clowns are most noble humans.
The moment they go on stage...they focus to make you laugh and be entertained..hiding their own private pains and sorrows.
Are these not the most generous and noble human beings on Earth?

Monsterball,

Do you think the doctor will be reading your postings in this obscure blog??

monsterball said...

There are thousands of doctors.
Some cure...some kill...but cannot be proven killers.
That's why certain doctors are arrogant....although outwardly....you see a mild mannered person. You can see he loves YES MAN...real sign of a dictator...and one carry his balls like nobody can do so well. He loves it!!
Typical..Mahathir!!
Then those who are basically Chinese educated doctors...playing politics...love to be a racialist...denying so..to fool MALAYSIANS.
That why....you see so many at Gerakan and MCA....have tons of doctors as members.
Engineers...architects...lawyers...shunt these two parties.
So..which doctor...."MAY I ASK YOU"..will be interested to read your blog?
If one does...than you are getting famous.
If none..then you better talk to Gracie more. She really careS for you.
So pray hard!!

monsterball said...

If you want your blog to be popular...you must answer your visitors!!
Then...pick and chose which one you want to say......"May I request you to.. LEAVE US!!"
Remember "leave us"....must be in capital letters!
That will make you a nice guy...blog owner...with class....for all to see.
Now..you are not popular....don't offend anyone......but you must response more often.
Otherwise...so dull...like idiots talking to himself.

monsterball said...

Mark my word....if you continue to put out such posts....you will soon be popular....PROVIDED...you have smart commentator..like monsterball..to attract the visitors.....hahahahahaha
One year later....apply..."May I...".
WHO CARES!!

monsterball said...

And I must make time for my company!!
You see..I control TIME.....not let time control me.

Cilyhot and monsterball,

Taking care of grand daughter is full time. It's not how much work and/or responsibilities involved, but the right frame of mind to tend to these chores and responsibilities.

Monsterball is lucky. He has well-behaved children. He is free from having to worry about his children creating problems for him.

Taking care of my grand daughter is not that difficult. It is the recurring thought that is sapping the old man. Doing it is easy; thinking about it is difficult!! It's the frame of mind that makes a person sad.

Clowns have many things in their bag of tricks. Some do slapstick, pie throwing, falling down stumbling, physical humor. Some do pantomime; they don't speak, they act out their skit or story, instead. Some use magic or juggling.A Clown is an artist or performer who pretends to be a fool or foolish and acts out or acts up, in order to amuse his audience.
