Clown Returns From Space Followed By A Martian Dwarf Troupe

I hate clowns. Clowns rich enough to buy a ticket to ride to the International Space Station? I loathe them with a vengeance. Well, the only clown in space—Guy Laliberte—hard landed on Earth at 8.31am today, Moscow time.

The former fire-breather founded the Cirque du Soleil and went to space in September in a Soyuz spacecraft after paying $US34.7 million.

He did a show from the International Space Station denouncing the shortage of clean water in some parts of the water. Nobody laughed. He then got a cream pie splashed on his face and still nobody laughed. [Daily Mail]
