Politicians Are Poody Heads

and they're not the only ones…

Yeah, but what if he wanted to use your bathroom?

Police in South Carolina questioned a clown after a 911 caller mistook the costumed character’s umbrella for a gun.

Mount Pleasant police said a witness called 911 Wednesday to report a man in full clown regalia was crossing the Ravenel Bridge and appeared to be carrying a gun.

 “It appeared to be a male, but he had full face makeup on dressed like a clown,” the caller told 911 dispatchers in records obtained by WCIV-TV. “It’s a thing, and it’s a little sketchy, and he appeared to have a rifle underneath his right arm. Could have been something else.”...Charleston police arrived and shut down the right lane of traffic to speak with the clown. Officers said the man wasn’t up to any funny business and was crossing the bridge in costume as a tribute to a recently deceased clown comrade.

The clown wasn’t up to any funny business.  Well, thank goodness for that!

The clown was allowed to finish his walk.

“He’s just a clown walking across the bridge,” Mount Pleasant Police Inspector Chip Googe told The Post and Courier. “He said he was paying tribute to another clown that had apparently passed away or had some other troubles.”

But what about the umbrella — are you sure it wasn’t loaded?

    That umbrella looks like a gun? Are you kidding me?
    Oh, and, it’s pretty clear that this clown, despite all the make-up, is a white man. What would the outcome have been if it was clear that the clown was a black man?
    Just sayin’.
