Send In the Damn Clowns

SEND IN THE CLOWNS…

[I]t’s a theater reference meaning “if the show isn’t going well, let’s send in the clowns”;

in other words, “let’s do the jokes.” – Stephen Sondheim

 

When asked about Robin Williams, most say “sweet.”¬† I LOVE this!

 

There’s a classic story about the legendary clown Joseph Grimaldi that comes to mind…

    Just found your blog via BloggyMoms directory. Loved the Robin Williams clip. The day he passed I thought to myself that if you listened really closely – you could probably hear the angels laughing.
