i think the female clown should have changed her makeup to sadclown or possibly sadclown-crying face for the photo op.

im suprised the ambulance wasn't smaller.  i was thinking it would be a little VW bug painted many different colors, containing at least 10 to 20 EMS personnel

Everyone should stop clowning around ! We should have a heart and not attack him. He's left some big shoes to fill !

They tried to wake him up with a bucket of water but it turned out to be confetti.

After the loss of this man, Macy's doesn't know what they're going to do for the parade next year.  Those are some pretty big shoes to fill.

 

Ba da bump.
