British Clowns are the best and we will leave that there for January 2023. The word clown is honoured by Clowne (est. 1002) in Derbyshire, England and has its own parish council (means run by the Anglican Church) here: History of Clowne | Clowne Parish Council. This naming proves the monarch de jour must have loved them and always wanted them part of the infrastructure and society.
French clowns started international manoeuvring clowning by stealing the ‘e’ possible and adding the ‘ing’ creating the verb (to do clown things) and they are the leaders in the clowning industry (before you start). This movement went worldwide with Internationally known Clowns establishing styles and rules. They have a website with history which leads into 2500 Before Christ. They continue their development and now instead of being sighted in Greek texts and hieroglyphics, have a websites like this one: History of Clowns | Clowns.com Blog.
Clowns have always made very good SO (sex Offender) hunters who can show up and collect perpetrators being a significant part of the secret service. Despite their demise from ongoing assaults and having to go unemployed and nude of makeup; they have used the suggestion as civilian camouflage and persistently pursued the same traditional roles of making people smile.
To settle the matter on which clown is present; dress inspections will be carried out annually by the Chief President of Clowns Union, once they have figured who that is out, who ensures the name and costume, makeup and behaviours match each named clown.
Clown behaviour is also owned by specific clowns and the best impression owns it if there is a squabble. They do mimic each other in memory of their dead effigies. Clowns may have inspired BSL and have not been respected for that. We should acknowledge that as being the first silent communication for mute people and for the disabled and for those who cannot speak because they were in serfdom or otherwise oppressed.
Clowns are awesome stunt professionals, bodyguards and lovers (it is reported ‘the lady always gets flowers’). Anyone can be a career clown and disabilities are seen as a novel challenge, a feature to display decoratively to bring joy. They busk, sing, dance, walk on wires and do very good slap stick (we still don’t know how that got named as it is an industry secret). They are animal trainers, can balance things, balloon twist, do skits, face painting, aerobatics and get in trouble with magicians when they claim they can do magic, because that’s thieving an art and considered impersonation. Magicians do humour them by making the jest back.
Clowns have done more for diversity in cross dressing, men’s makeup and participated even in horror films to show flexibility. Walking through glass, how to move a table will always be funny, as is custard pies and throwing glitter. We still have not been told what a band of clowns is called, and we await news. Early indications from America is that is a Chicaleili.
Clown conventions are held world wide and they are a deterrent to mentalists who will be told by clowns their dearth at twisting minds is no more than a step to criminal activity and a door to harming the vulnerable. They appear to be unfunny wannabe criminals to clowns and clowns see them as the joke.
Charlie Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin - Boxing Match (City Lights, 1931) - YouTube) is their hero of stage and screen. It is a trade that is as hard hit as blacksmiths and magicians.
Puddles recently led in this re-emergence of clowning and remains a firm lead in delivering the mood and music see here: Hallelujah – Puddles Pity Party at the SF Regency Lodge Ballroom - YouTube
Clown management is one of the most important aspects of what we do because they have always represented the unheard, were likely the first child protection and inherit their industry from the ancient noble courts as jesters, keeping the powerful safe by humouring them.
Occasionally, this sort of hypothetical chat helps the divisions, and it is that diverse. Teams enjoy briefings similar in tone because they can take it, feel valued and utterly respected for what they do. That way we illicit the best from them.
In terms of military intelligence – see everything as a resource and opportunity, clowns are a significant part of the game.
