Shakes the Clown lives in Palukaville, the nation's leading producer of lard, where most of the men dress in makeup and clown costumes and hang out in a bar called the Twisted Balloon. With his clown pals, Shakes likes to drive around town boozing it up in a car painted with polka-dots. One day, they spot three mimes performing on the side of the road. "Mimes!" they shout, as they begin chasing and bashing the hapless men in white face.

Lucky the Clown wasn't smiling. "One of the greatest advertisements I've seen in the last 20 years to promote censorship," he said. "That's why they put doors on bathrooms." Ouch. Lucky, who is Bill Baldwin of Anaheim when he's not in costume, had just seen "Shakes the Clown," the movie that does for the image of clowns what "Scarface" did for Italians. While watching a movie that's supposed to be a comedy, Baldwin, as far as I could tell, didn't laugh once.
