These clowns may be all smiles on the outside, but look at those eyes. On the inside, they are ready to bark, "Get the hook!" The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was in town, and on July 8, 1982, it held auditions for Clown College. Five brave souls showed up at the Tucson Community Center to try out for the privilege of wearing oversized shoes and cramming themselves into tiny cars. The would-be jesters were asked to transform themselves into lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners and hair dryers. They also had to imitate the professional clowns' skit, which involved a giant sandwich and some pepper. Apparently there is no such thing as a slow-paced circus clown - the entire process took less than an hour.
