I think if I were a clown, I'd get myself a hat with a bird in it. That's better than those disco shoes with goldfish in the heels!

So cool. I love to see transitions like these and...wait...is he playing a saxophone out of his ear?!!
Ha! Just another example of why Flora was the BEST.

Is the clown @ the top wearing sandals?
