Many years ago I checked into a hotel in Springfield Mass. and every person in the lobby was dressed as a clown! Clowns, chatting, clowns smoking, clowns having a cocktail and a nibble from the happy hour buffet! It turns out it was a meet and greet for a group of Shriners that were in town for an event at the local Shriners hospital. To me it looked like a scene from a Stephen King movie!

I used to bartend at private events for Shriners. Thankfully, none dressed as clowns, though they did try to stick a ruby in my navel, and liked to start their party at 7am.

My dad housed the mini model Ts they used in parades in his quonset hut. As kids, we got to drive them around when there weren't any parades.

Did you guys know that the faces a person chooses to wear for his clown costume are each unique and there's an organization somewhere that lists and keeps track of each one?

Friend dropped a whole plate of chicken fresh off the grill on the ground. I told him to wipe the visible dirt off and serve it. If no one saw it, it didn't happen. We ate dirt all the time as kids.

5 second rule. :-)

I've eaten dropped food before and so far it hasn't killed me.

Me too. As long as it wasn't in sand, no harm no foul. Or fowl.

I might have put it back on the grill for a minute or so to sterilize it, after wiping off the dirt.

Eh. Dirt never hurt anyone. As we Nodaks say after an injury, just rub some dirt on it and keep playing.

I believe it is in Sarasota FL, and each face is painted on an egg.
