LB: while that post is funny on the surface, real clowns actually have like, clown training and stuff, so it's actually a meaningful distinction. >.> It's basically wearing a uniform for a job you don't have.
@InspectorCaracal Dissin' on the indie clown scene. smh
@pillowcat Hey now, indie clowns still train for their job even if it's self-taught, I ain't no paperwork gatekeeper.
@InspectorCaracal Ah, that's fair. Forgive me if my gut reaction was that when you said "training" I thought you were exclusively referring to clown college.
@pillowcat Nah it's cool, it's a fair reaction. xD
@InspectorCaracal If I saw someone with a knife, wearing a creepy clown costume, I don't think it would matter to me?
@Anke Well, no, but I was pretty clearly not talking about the situation, I was talking about the sheriff's comment.
@InspectorCaracal I thought the weird/funny thing was that creepy, armed folks in clown costumes would be only something to wory about if they were actual clowns, not just people dressing up as clowns.
I guess I only heard about the worst of those sightings :)
@InspectorCaracal of course, that only makes it funnier that the sheriff would think "they're not real clowns" was *reassuring*. What does he think real clowns are trained to do? O_O
