Revitalization is happening so rapidly along West Broadway--at least in terms of very big plans being announced--that at least one resident is already asking this blog to make a plea to save a colorful reminder of the area's historical past, specifically the "psycho clown" on the side of the old furniture store.
Ah, yes, just look at him with his little sign...
"Stop Buy" says the sign.
Get it? Buy? By? Stop BY?
Yeah, I figured you'd get it.
And, actually, I don't know if the psycho clown has a name, but I racked my brain and came up with "Loco" because it sounds like "Low Cost" and, well, we know this clown likes puns. Sure, we don't know a heck of a lot about the clown--in particular why he has made a career of standing on the roughest part of West Broadway--but that one small piece of information we definitely do have.
Loco The Psycho Clown likes plays on words.
Maybe my bloggy little plea won't be enough to save him. But at least I have a picture of the clown so people can remember him.
