Clowntime Is Over

Clown beat-down. Alas, it's the clown doing the beating -- on a 12 year old, no less.

As a child going to the circus, you might expect the clown to throw a bucket of confetti at you, or squirt you with water from the flower on his lapel.

You certainly wouldn't be prepared for him to grab you by the scruff of the neck, punch and kick you and leave you needing hospital treatment for cuts and bruises.

As these astonishing pictures show, that's what happened when 12-year-old Amos Lutz met Kaspar the Clown at a circus in Leipzig, Germany.

Amos's mistake seems to have been to hurl a carton of his own confetti at Kaspar - otherwise known as Bernd Kalster, 47 - as he strolled by. Clown Bernd Kalster, 47, punched and kicked helpless Amos Lutzer, 12, to the ground at Leipzig, Germany, then claimed it was self defence.

Kaspar clearly failed to see the funny side.

A German lacking a sense of humor? A clown which brings not mirth but misery and horror? It's almost too unbelievable to be true.

Thanks to... well, so many people that I can't name them all, as they say at the Oscars.

"Cycle of Violence" Update: Two clowns shot dead at circus.

The local police chief stated: "The killings had nothing to do with the show the victims were performing at the time of the incident."

I don't know about that. They were doing clown shit, right? That seems like a motive that shouldn't be so quickly dismissed.

Seems similar to how police always immediate rule out jihadism as a motive when a "trechcoat-clad youth" gets it in his head to shoot people, blow people up, or run people down in his car.

In related news, Jimmy Carter is set to write a book condemning the west's "anti-clown animus" and calling for an end to the "apartheid" clowns suffer under within the children's entertainment community.

Clowns have, in turn, conferred an honorary clownship on him.

It's about time.
