Clowning Around…

A young ventriloquist is touring and one night he’s doing a show in a small town. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going through his usual dumb clown jokes when a clown in the 4th row stands up and starts shouting: “I’ve heard enough of your clown jokes. What makes you think you can stereotype clowns that way?”

“We clowns visit sick children in the hospital. We help make birthday parties fun.”

“It’s guys like you who keep clowns like me from being respected at work and in the community and from reaching our full potential as an entertainer.”

“Because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only clowns, but anyone who helps children, and all in the name of humor!”

The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, and the clown yells,

“You stay out of this, mister! I’m talking to that little guy on your knee.”
