You know, John Wayne Gacy was a clown

If you happen to be in New York City today, grab a bike and head to Washington Square Park at about 6:30 p.m. A clown troupe will be pedaling the streets of Manhattan to ticket cars parked in bike lanes.

The Time’s Up! Bicycle Clown Brigade, made up of bicyclists dressed like clowns, will ride throughout midtown Manhattan handing out facsimile parking tickets to motorists who park in the bike lane.

This will, of course, invert the normal situation that you see in Upper Manhattan, where there are a great number of clowns dressed as bicyclists.
