    Max Patkin (1920 – 1999) was an American baseball player and clown, best known as the Clown Prince of Baseball. Patkin was the third "officially" crowned Clown Prince of Baseball, after Al Schacht and Jackie Price. (tonque twister o_O)

    The clowns in Ecuador are pretty scary, frankly. I was told that the white skin represents the European conquerors, the red areas are the sunburn that they had, and the cross on the forehead is for the missionaries who came to convert the natives, usually forcefully. The traditional clowns don't "clown", they just follow you around and stare at you.

    I had to lock myself in the ladies' room once to get away from one that was creeping me out majorly.
