No Bozos Here, Says World’s Leading Bozo Expert
Breaking BozoGate News! A visitor to our original Christine O’Donnell Bozo post thickens the plot:
My name is Pat Cashin. I have a daily clown history blog called clownalley.net and am on the Board of Directors of the International Clown Hall of Fame and Research Center in Baraboo, WI.
I’ve researched the Bozo character for many, many years. I have NEVER heard of Daniel O’Donnell portraying the character.
Our deep and sincere thanks to Mr. Cashin for confirming our initial suspicions. (And happy first birthday, Jamie! Yo Gabba Gabba!) Now if the Lamestream Media will just step up to the plate, we might get some action here.
Update: New York Times covers BozoGate — and us:
“They would leave, I would come in and work for two or three weeks, whatever, until the regular Bozo came back,” Mr. O’Donnell said. “I was the fill-in Bozo.” He worked out of a local station in Jenkintown, Pa., he said, adding that station employees did his make-up and hair. He would also do remote appearances, got to supermarkets, meet kids, sign autographs and ride around in the Bozo Mobile. His son Daniel was his assistant.
And finally, The Truth is Revealed: Christine O’Donnell’s dad was a Second-String Bozo.
