Send In The Clowns?

There is a war going on in Mexico between the drug cartels and the police. Apparently kids are scared of both sides. So, in an effort to seem less scary a couple of cops are dressing up like clowns during visits to schools.

Yup, nothing scary about a clown. You might as well dress up as Stabby the closet monster.

Police clowns too boring for you? How about police vs. clowns!

Douglas Coupland tweeted this video out earlier today. He'll be on the show Wednesday.
