Clowns are an essential element of ritual in most places in the world. Their antics provide an over-the-top immorality, which, by negative example, serves to highlight and strengthen the integral values of society. The Hopi say that clowns show life the way it should not be.

Lord, What Fools These Mortals Be!

In Scotland, April 1 is known as Huntigowok. In Fife, a peninsula north of Edinburgh, the foolishness continues on April, 2, Taily Day, when the fun is limited to the immediate area of the backside.
