German Woman Is Well On Her Way To Having Just Enough Clowns

We can’t all be the best at everything. For example, some of us will only live to collect 50 – 100 clowns in our lifetimes. It’s true! Some of us will collect a few more, some even a few less, but the fact is that most of us won’t even break 1,000 — and that is ok. We all have our own things. And I know it’s true that owning the world’s largest clown collection may seem incredibly glamourous and, honestly, it does seem to be what everyone is striving for these days. But you know what? Only one person can own the world’s largest clown collection, and it may not even be all its cracked up to be. I know that sounds crazy. “But I’d have the most clowns,” you’re probably thinking. “What could be bad about having the most clowns?” Well, did you think about all the laughing that you’d have to do with all those clown dolls around? Just constant laughter. And the dusting? Constant dusting! And having the world’s eyes on you, each of them burning you with their intense jealousy? It’s no day at the circus, I’ll tell you that much. But it does seem wonderful, doesn’t it?

Ahhh, to live just for a day as the woman with the world’s largest collection of clowns. It’s hard to tell if it would even be worth it — the question attached being whether you’d rather live the rest of your life knowing what you’re missing, or continue on in blissful ignorance. A tough call, but luckily one that we’ll never have to make. (Via TheDailyWhat.)
