Recently, you might have heard on the news there is a shortage of clowns in the United States.

A study showed in 2004, there were 3,500 clowns nation-wide, and now there are only 2,500 -- a decrease of approximately 28 percent.

This might be disturbing to you, but I believe the study is inaccurate. We have the same number of clowns -- it's just the vast majority of them now live in Washington.
