The response the underaged Nationals' baseball player, Bryce Harper gave when asked about what his favorite beer in Canada was.
Every time I hear the word "clown," I think of this odd clown painting I discovered at The Antique Guys in the Montrose area. It was such a disturbing painting that I wanted to buy it and put it in my husband's office as a prank.
Even with the cracked canvas, they wanted over $1000 (!!!!?) for it. Um no.
The reason? Apparently it came from some estate sale from some Houston manse, and he thought it was worth something.
You'd have to pay me over $1000 to put that anywhere in my home.
Disturbing picture in many ways. The dismissive clown is bald. Yet has a bit of a chest. Man? Woman? Something else? This picture haunts my dreams. Now it can haunt yours. Glad I could share.
Media Asking Questions.
I am both a consumer of media, and sometimes I wear a media hat and ask questions of folks. And from the media side, I can tell you it can be a challenge to ask questions that elicit any sort of interesting information. Coach/player speak exists because usually all you as readers get is the answer to the question. They can frame what they want to talk about, not what you wanted to know. So, if any public figure gets a question they don't like, they don't have to answer that question, they can say whatever they want that is a non-controversial thing.
Usually players don't respond, "That's a clown question bro," though I must confess, sometimes some derivative of that is what both media/players likely think when they hear a bizarre question.
My Contribution to the Web.
I enjoy reading the web. I enjoying contributing to its content. Here's today's contribution in a large size for your upload, photoshop pleasure and so you can see it in all of its evil carefully painted details. Font Comic Sans, of course.
