Guess they shouldn't have sent in the clown.
I'm not sure if someone's Coulrophobia kicked in to high gear while on a cruise from Southampton, England to Norway, but it was quite the bloody circus aboard the cruiseliner when, on the last leg of the journey, a passenger appeared in clown form.
" 'One witness, part of a group involved in the trouble, explained to staff that things kicked off when another passenger appeared dressed as a clown,' [Richard] Gaisford said.
'This upset one of their party because they'd specifically booked a cruise with no fancy dress. It led to a violent confrontation.'
In the United Kingdom, fancy dress means wearing a costume."
This wardrobe malfunction caused quite the ruckus aboard the ship as "police told ITV that three men and three women were assaulted during the fight and that there were a number of injuries including cuts and bruises."
" 'There was blood everywhere,' Gaisford wrote. 'Passengers used furniture and plates as weapons. Witnesses told me they were so frightened they had to hide as family groups fought,' Gaisford added.'
I can't wait to see more about this story, and especially can't wait for the film version when Samuel L Jackson utters the soon to be popular phrase, "Get this mother****ing Clown of this mother****ing cruise!"
