Guy Whose Job Is Putting On Face Paint And Frightening Children Resents Being Compared To Scary Old Man

"The head of Germany's most prominent circus has criticised Social Democratic candidate Peer Steinbrueck for comparing the clown profession to former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi…. 'Being a clown is an honorable, very difficult, sensitive and artistic occupation,' he said. 'How can you compare that with bunga-bunga?'"

Burlosconi's reputation for corruption is exaggerated because of how entertainingly corrupt he so frequently is. He's actually pretty honest as far as Italy goes, the socialists make him look straight as an arrow.

@Scum The Federation of Gay & Lesbian Archers is on the phone, they'd like to have a word.

And we wouldn't want anyone to damage the hard-earned reputation of clowndom.

Oh, I think he has a point. True, clowns are scary, but Berlusconi is a whole other level of repulsive.
