    Clowns are just awesome, huh?

    Who came up with the idea of clowns anyway? I wonder if one day someone just went 'honk honk' and everyone laughed.

    Liked just for the use of Valshe's Jester. Epic song and visuals. And Valshe rocks.

    Probably started out as jesters entertaining royals in court or something more primitive. Go google it or something. :>

    japanese hentai depiction of clown

    HAHAHAHA ARE YOU SERIOUS?
    Please, it's not even from something closely related to hentai or anime. It's art created for a great utaite's album. Don't go embarass yourself if you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Also, didn't point this out earlier but it's a jester in the picture not a clown. Not the same thing.

    In me opinion, it is anime-styled picture. Which is beyond the point.

    Now, clowns are, in fact, freaking awesome. Try to imagine how would it be - to decide to become a clown. And to actually come through with it. Cause it's not easy. Oh, and I don't mean those fucks who you meet at kids parties. That's for pussies. I am talking about hardcore clowns in hardcore circuses. It is a hard work. Or there's even something more hardcore:

    Yep, rodeo clowns. Those guys have to make people laugh while they are fucking trampled by bulls.

    Well, being a clown always was a tough job, right from the beginning. In the beginning they were called 'fools' and every decent king had to have at least one. The fool was considered to be an idiot. A tit. And that was the reason why he could do or say absolutely everything. Even bad things about the king himself, stuff that would be death for any other person. And he had to be funny on command. Think about it - you had to sleep on the stone floor, fight the dogs for food and be funny on command with the distinct possibility of saying something that may annoy the king so much that he would decide to execute you. Fools of those times were the smartest people in the castle.

    So yeah, I would imagine you don't think about people deliberately hurting or endangering themselves to make you laugh when you say that clowns are awesome. But yes, they very much are.

    @9mm I agree with you that it's "generic manga/anime style" however it was wrong to immediately put it as "hentai". If I'm correct, the general understanding of what "hentai" is for the regular person: manga/anime with sexual themes which is often drawn in the same style most anime/manga are drawn in. But it doesn't make any anime/manga styled art on the Internet "hentai" but simply "anime/manga styled".

    Clowns? Their original ideas were ducks I believe, with their raucous honk honk honk yes, clowns are a wonderful sub-genre of human entertainment and will be forever more.
