RIP Bozo

When I was a kid, I had the great fortune of being a participant in ‘The Bozo Show’.  My team lost but we still went home with a set of ‘Uno’ cards and a Tengen ‘Double Dragon’ handheld game.  Solid prizes.

The game I played involved passing a ball from your chin to your chest (no hands) to the next player.  The first team down and back one.

I remember that they went for a line up with alternating male and female contestants.  I also remember being relentlessly ridiculed by my brothers about how the gals on each side of were my ‘girlfriends’.

If they were my girlfriends, I’d like a chance to explain.  I was six, and only knew how to call 911 and my grandma.  Sorry girls.  I’m such a typical man.  I meant no disrespect.

Anyhow, still got ‘Double Dragon’ and I’m gonna grab some AA batteries and honor Bozo the only way I know how.  Rest in Seltzer bottles my sweet clown.
