*That’s the sound a clown car makes! At least in my mind. Unless I’m in Europe, and then it goes mee-murr, mee-murr, just like most of the emergency vehicles in Europe do.
So while strolling through the internets this past week, looking for clownish topics to
torture amuse tempt you all with, I came across this:
And even better, this article from Car and Driver, which is about the physics of clown cars. Seriously! Is that not the awesomest?!? Who knew that Clown Politics, Goofball Mugging, and Relative Hilarity Threshold were all part of the complex equation of just how many clowns can fit into a clown car (or a 2011 Ford Focus).
And just what does this have to do with anything, you ask? Well, I thought it was fun (I’m easily amused) and it relates to CLOWNS, and there is a CLOWN in Stephen King’s IT, which I am (fairly unsuccessfully, if the truth be told) trying to recruit you all to read with us.
However, I’m afraid that all I’ve succeeded in doing this past week is making you all wonder (even more than you already wonder) just how weird I really am. Make me feel better and tell me that you really, really, really want to read IT with me (and Princess Clown Nose @ Reading Thru the Night and Trish @ Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity and Vasilly @ 1330 Thoughts of an Eclectic Reader and Natalie @ Coffee and a Book Chick and Care @ Care’s Online Book Club and Maree @ Just Add Books and Patti @ Peppermint Ph.D. and one of my oldest blogging friends Angela @ avantaknits (not that I’m calling her old…just that I’ve known her since my LJ days) and maybe Ti @ Book Chatter and also maybe Zibilee @ Raging Bibliomania). By golly, we might just have enough people to make up a troupe of clowns! Now all we need is a very small car…
