Eh, t’as mangé un clown? Anon
Translation:”So you’ve eaten a clown?”
A useful French expression to use when a person persistently makes bad jokes.
A little while ago, the most excellent Elusive Trope nominated me to be a part of 3 quotes in 3 days and the wonderful Secret Keeper also nominated me for the same challenge. And then the weekly Word Press photo prompt was “Boundaries” and then I was going over my photos and I found this one I took of the entrance to Luna Park in Sydney when I was there last. This marks the boundary of the park and you pass through this disturbing clown’s face to enter it. One of the peculiarities is that the park still has many of its original rides from the 1920’s including a practically vertical and extremely high wooden slide that you ride down on a gunny sack. Terrifying.
This clown’s face has undergone a number of renovations over the years and this one is closer to the original than the others which became progressively more menacing and disturbing until the park fell into disrepair in the 1970s. It is now fully functioning again and well worth a visit, particularly as it is at the base of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you are not prone to motion sickness, I can recommend going at night and riding on the “Tumble Bug” which throws you in every direction and gives you a view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge upside down and fully lit up.
