On it's July 30 "Family Fun" page the Kansas City Star ran a blurb on National Clown Week. Accompaning the text, naturally enough, was a photo of a clown. But the editor selecting the file photo neglected to look at the flipside which would have revealed that the clown in question was John Wayne Gacy, a Chicago serial killer ( and one time clown) executed for killing 33 boys and young men. The Star apologized the next day in an editor's note.

Bad editor. Ouch.

And Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant.

I don't know if it's recent or not, I got it out of a bathroom reader. lol

I'm a little scared of clowns, so I'm not gonna google it to find out.
