  1. Yes, I think that’s it, Bill.
    It is complex humor. Usually a pie is thrown into a face. OR someone is tripped. But this combines TWO elements. So it is funnier. At least that’s what the squirrel told me.

  2. Taking another look, it would be funny if the clown in the alley was putting a banana peel on the sidewalk instead of sticking his foot out.
    I notice that the alley is very skinny, as is the clown we see walking.

  3. That was my thought as well, but I was asked for a second opinion.

    That said… that little bit of weed growing between the sidewalk squares was a nice bit of detail.

  4. Is that foot connected to anything/anyone? And this is one of the creepier clowns I’ve seen . . . something about him being so etiolated, but acting ‘normal’ . . . it’s just jarring to me. But not funny.

  5. The green clown is costumed as a banana. So instead of tripping on a banana peel, the red shoe is tripping a banana peel.

  6. I don’t think it was an alley, but just a narrow space between two buildings. And the clown doing the tripping is on stilts so as to have his body above the buildings between which he wouldn’t fit.

  7. Isn’t that the definition of an “alley”?

    When I first saw this I didn’t notice the pie and was trying to figure out a joke involving the extreme skinniness of the clowns.

  8. Clown mugging. Hide in a dark alley and trip them into a pie, then go through their pockets.

  9. Heh – I’m studying spanish, and ‘pie’ is spanish for foot. So it took me a bit to see the pie.

  10. Never agree to accept the Annual Pioneer Award on graduation night from the local clown college.

  11. An evil clown was paid to make a hit against another clown.

    However, he was told to make it look like an accident.
