There’s a lot of things we’ve talked about in the past that have been strictly for adults (unless you’re a twelve year old who’s surfing the net without you’re parents knowing, I guess no one is stopping you?). Today though, we’re going to talk about something that is strictly for kids, to make them laugh.

The Mott Campus Clowns are a travelling band of clowns that is actually an educational program at the Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan. Being a clown is on a semester basis and there are requirements: you have to have good grades and you have to be taking a certain social class that kind of goes hand in hand with being a travelling clown.

When you first see the clowns, you immediately notice how detailed and extravagant their clown attire is! These are by far the best clown suits Ive ever seen hands down, spared no expense. These group of clowns, which is ever evolving, different students in and out each semester. Here is their “About” description on their Facebook page: “The Campus Clowns hail from Mott Community College in Flint, MI. All clown troupe members are enrolled in HONS 251: Social Diversity and Civic Engagement. As a requirement for this experiential lab, students must complete 45 service learning hours at elementary schools, parades, community agencies and the Special Olympics. This October, the Campus Clowns introduced a school anti-bully program for K-3rd grade students. All clown appearances are directed by Brian Ivory, Honors Coordinator. Dr. Ivory (AKA Bubby the Clown) is a 1987 graduate of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College. The clown troupe is supported by Mott Community College and its Campus Life Enrichment Fund.” Here’s a good video to show what they do:

Well, feel good folks!

Do you ever look at Craigslist for things?  A car? A cat? An obscure object that you’ll never find? Have you ever noticed the little tiny button at the bottom that say “best of” with a little heart next to it? If enough people read one post, and enough people click that best of button, it becomes nominated for the best of craiglist page where you can just go and read the most ridiculous things you’ve ever read for hours. There are a handful of Denver posts that have made it in, check them out, hahahahaha!

Here is a hilariously embarassing story from a man who is making a confession about a water park incident.  http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/den/235728006.html

This man has a message for the lab lady.  http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/den/156241327.html

This guy needs his garage space back. http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/den/57066596.html

This guy is…desperately funny? http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/den/16558863.html

Some classic things come out of Denver. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the country’s stuff.
