"It's all about the moonbounce."
Even for a recovering coulrophobic like myself, I found Bill Goodwin's "On Being a Clown" to be pure enjoyment and right up there with the Great Zucchini. Unless you have kids, you easily forget that clowning around is, for many, still a way to pay the bills. And, no surprise, it can seem like a thankless job, considering the amount of work and energy required. You can find Goodwin's essay in the current issue of Doublethink.
