THE TRUTH ABOUT CLOWNS
By Jason Squamata
You know,when I found out “Bring in the Clowns” was the theme tonight, I had some mixed feelings. I partly felt like backing out.
Then my work ethic kicked in and I decided to man up. Doug didn’t say that our pieces of truth or fiction had to touch on clowns at all.
I could talk about anything I wanted. I could avoid the subject of clowns altogether. But that would be a sniveling, cowardly thing to do.
I owe it to myself to stand here in front of you and god and everybody and tell you how I feel about clowns.
