Professional Clowns: 'It' Ain't Good for Business

Professional clowns are not happy about the new clown thriller It. Guilford Adams, a 42-year-old clown, who has performed under the name of Gillie for 20 years recently told Mel magazine, "It's gonna be bad for clowns."

Everybody needs to go to Humpy Pumpy's Yelp page," Glenn laughingly encouraged.
