In an unprecedented reversal of typical university applications, students in their thousands have been switching from political degrees to sign up for Clown School.
Clown impresario and spokesman for the Family Of Clowns Association, Professor Bongo Baggy Britches, said: “Clowning has been a dying profession but it has got a new lease of life today.
“We have had so many applications that we will have to open new Clown Schools to handle all the admissions.”
Professor Bongo Baggy Britches is in charge of the prestigious Clown Fool School in Windsor, not far from Eton. He continued: “Most of the new students have switched from economics, law or political studies and signed up for the Buffoon course.
“This has become increasingly popular in recent years. It’s very satisfying to see students going on to have illustrious careers, not necessarily in clowning.
“But not everyone is cut out to be a clown. Some of the students just couldn’t adapt to the idiotic buffoonery demanded of the character and some went back to their law or political degrees.
“Being a good bumbler takes time, work and effort although some people do make it look easy.”
The Professor concluded: “We do have one or two famous alumni.” He tapped his bulbous red nose.
