Send in the Clown

Heís an Emmett Kelly kind of clown with his arms full of balloon animals. He grumbles quietly to himself as he heads to a garbage can and starts stuffing the balloons inside. He looks behind him to make sure no one is messing with his folding chair and industrial-sized bucket of uninflated balloons. He turns back to the trash, takes out a pin, and begins popping what could be a giraffe. A little kid whose eyes havenít left the balloons since before they hit the garbage keeps watching over his shoulder as his mom pulls him along behind her.
