The clown

A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it's a joke.

Glad you like it!
I love your capture, where is it taken, is it from a carnival?

it's in Lisbon, 2 weekends ago, it's a sort of street-party for xmas, with princesses, clowns and santa, a mixed combination of characters :)
