As I pulled into the parking lot this morning, on my way to jin shin, the radio newscaster said:
"Police are searching for two clowns who robbed a doughnut shop in Everett today.'
The world is strange these days. That made me laugh, but the story in the newspaper sounds more serious:
"Snohomish County sheriff's deputies are searching for two men who robbed a South Everett doughnut shop yesterday at gunpoint while wearing clown masks.
Employees at Henry's Donuts & Deli reported the men came in the front door and demanded cash about 8 a.m., said sheriff's spokesman Rich Niebusch. The men took an undisclosed sum of cash and left through the back door of the store in the 12700 block of Fourth Avenue West. They took no doughnuts.
The men are described as heavyset and wearing white clown masks with red noses and gloves, Niebusch said. No one was hurt."
The funniness depends upon the spin.
