Imagine – he’s in the circus clown hall of fame. He slipped away on a technicality until…now. A staple and star he left/retired from the Big Apple Circus. Then a girl accused him. It was too late. He could not be fired since he was already gone. The circus changed owners. Now he’s back. The #MeToo movement fired up his accuser and he’s gone. Long story short. I hope I got it right.

This son of a gun posed with my kids (when they were once kids). Who’d have known? As the NY Times noted: that’s not the man he is in “costume.” Yeah, pun intended (with sarcasm and shock). Sorry kids. I’m really sorry. Shocked? Saddened? You bet.
The Big Apple Circus was a tradition for us for a few years at Christmas. While we went Grandma, the Clown, was a featured performer. He retired and then came back. We were so happy to see him again that the kids went over to get a picture. They are usually too shy. But sometimes it’s the right time and the right place.
