Snowbound German Airports Hires Clowns!

“With travellers frazzled by hundreds of flightcancellations, Germany’s busiest airport has hired clowns to help them and their children pass the hours, a spokeswoman said Monday.

‘Four clowns are performing in the terminal halls,’ the spokeswoman for Frankfurt’s international airport told AFP.

‘We came up with the idea for the kids, who are finding the delays particularly trying.’

The clowns, outfitted in brightly coloured costumes and some parading on stilts, started working over the weekend, when heavy snowfall led to hundreds of flights being scrapped amid chaos in the European air traffic network.


Four clowns roaming the terminal halls is exactly what the tired and frustrated passengers don’t need. If I were a tired and weary passenger and a clown engaged in his silly shenanigans in front of me, I would release all my frustrations by beating him to a bloody pulp.

Clowns tend to scare the heck out of kids, frazzled parents don’t need the additional stress of putting up with terrified children.

The airport should fire the clowns and hire four exotic dancers to take their place, passengers would appreciate them a lot more than a bunch of stupid clowns.
