Word of the Day 05/14/19 Clown Car

Clown Car (noun)
clown car [ kloun kahr ]


noun
1. a very small car used in a comedic circus routine, in which the normal passenger capacity is greatly exceeded by the numerous clowns who climb out from inside.
2. Informal. a group whose size seems absurdly excessive for the purported function of the group, and whose effectiveness is therefore questionable: The planning committee has added yet another member to its clown car, almost guaranteeing further delays.
3. Informal. a small car: He used to call my old Beetle a clown car, but when gas prices soared, I got the last laugh.

Origin: First recorded in 1950–55; from a comedy routine used in the Cole Bros. Circus

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

HAIR BANDS!!!

YOW!

Are they guilty pleasures? Is it road trip music? Does it bring back school days?

Poison, Dokken, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister.

Her hair reminds me of a warm, safe place

Pour some sugar on me

You got to roll with the punches and get to what's real


Photograph... Rock you like a hurricane... Here I go again... Round and round...

Let the loud big hair inspire some big bad boy words!
