“The clown is all of us.”

LONDON — Bibbledy Bob is running amok. The red-haired buffoon has been caught walking his hot dog in a graveyard and PC Konk is after him with his truncheon.

Up the road, meanwhile, a man in a yellow waistcoat is juggling while balancing on a ball to the strains of “My Way” through a barrel organ. Someone’s parading a rubber duck on a string. The air is thick with hoots and squeaks from a kazoo.

All Saints Church in Haggerston, east London, has been overwhelmed with wackiness. The clowns are in town.

A menagerie of fools gathered, dozens and dozens of them, for the 70th annual Clowns International service in honour of Joseph Grimaldi, the godfather of clowning in England who died in 1837. Read more…

A true artist is able to capture things not just the way they are, but the way they should be.

Dads say the strangest things.

Take this dad, for example. He seems to be under the impression that there is this fluffy, cold, white stuff called “snow” that falls out of the sky that blankets everything it touches. What a silly notion.

Luckily this little toddler knows better. Pics or it didn’t happen, dad.

It’s an age old question: Can cutting pizza ever be truly equal?

Many have wracked their brains trying to devise the perfect slice. Some cut in large triangles, which doesn’t always go as planned; others cut in small slivers; still others opt for the rather unpopular (and frankly, sadistic) square piece.

You just can’t please everyone. But mathematicians Joel Haddley and Stephen Worsley at University of Liverpool in England believe they have cracked the code for perfect equality at the dinner table by cutting somewhat complex, curved slices — also known as monohedral disc tiling. Read more…
