Have A Nice Trip, Er, Strip

Seriously, Officer, That's Not Funny

A clown wearing colourful pantaloons, huge shoes and a flashing police helmet was strip-searched by security guards at Birmingham International Airport. The man, 60, who was due to perform for sick children, also had his plastic handcuffs confiscated, and had his plastic scissors, toy camera, wacky glasses and bubble saxophone examined.

FOOTNOTE: Clown prints.

I wish I could think of something witty and amusing to say about this - but it's just too depressing to make light of.. sigh.

Happy New year hon, hope it was a good one!
