America to experience a clown shortage

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Kids across America could see a change in birthday parties due to the lack of shortage in clowns.

The President of the World Clown Association said membership into the exclusive world of painted faces, crazy bright hair and big floppy shoes, is down 30 percent.

The president said that most of the current members are over 40, and young people don't seem interested in picking up the pie.

She also said the reality remains, clowns just aren't as in demand as they used to be.
