Is anyone else here sick of monkeys and clowns used for comedy? Why are clowns still available for birthday parties, and why are tv marketers still using monkeys as a form of comedy?

I, for one, am.

Both should be reserved for porn - not comedy.

Monkey's can still be funny.

Clowns have never been funny. They have always been creepy and evil.

But can you imagine a monkey dressed up as a clown...red nose, make up, big shoes. Now THAT would be funny!

A good clown is funny. A chimp in a suit is as funny as a dog in a sweater.

I can't think of any clown I've seen that I actually found funny.

As for monkey's...nothing sells like monkeys! And it never gets old!

Clowns and monkeys don't bother me (well, clowns do a little) but what I've never understood is the use of midgets for comedic purposes.
