Still Sending In The Clowns

My very first post was on June 4, 2006 and it was titled “Send in the Clowns,” featuring a shot of one of the clowns from the short-lived (November 25, 1955—September 7, 1956) Mickey Mouse Club Circus at Disneyland. Today, I post a recently acquired shot of a different clown (but same circus!) standing in Central Plaza. Not sure what the guy on all fours on the ground is doing. Maybe he has an aversion to clowns. Yesterday, I saw a clown of a different kind; a guy wearing his COVID-19 mask while smoking a cigarette. Gotta’ love the irony; protect yourself from the air, but make sure you don't miss that nicotine!

Here’s the image I posted on the fateful day almost fourteen years ago:

How is he NOT in the storm drain offering Georgie a balloon? Two clowns and a guy smoking through his mask., three clowns.

Thanks for the comments all - doing well in San Diego, outside enjoying the sunshine...and avoiding clowns!

Dave, that 2nd clown (in white and green) is so darn creepy-looking (I think because of his eye makeup). I love that picture because it's so different from what I would expect to see on Disneyland's Main Street. Thanks for posting these pictures!
