Clowns Heal The Sick With Poop Jokes

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Believe it or not, clowns have the ability to heal the poor, hungry, and sick.

Clowns Without Borders is an organization that sends merrymaking clowns to areas affected by poverty, illness, and disaster to bring laughter to the lives of kids through funny live shows.

Deven Sisler – a volunteer clown who has brought her slapstick humor to Haiti and Katrina-torn New Orleans – says laughing is hard for those who have endured trauma, particularly children who didn’t have a normal childhood.

She prides herself on teaching them how to be happy again and put the trauma behind them, if only for a second.

Seeing kids “have fun and be silly” is rewarding for Sisler and her clown cohorts, who have realized that clowning around is universal.

Despite the language barriers in the different parts of the world they visit, Sisler says kids everywhere get a laugh out of her gags because, “Poop and farting is always funny, no matter where you go.”
