I was half way through the video before I realized it was not an Oak Lawn Board meeting.

Did Quinn take his place?? They have very similar characteristics, they are both clowns.

eldebarge, Did you live in an enclosed room, that was all acting to make people laugh!! Today's violence on T.V.is much more than BOZO throwing a pie in the face. Pie-throwing has been around for years back in the 1920's. You were probably the kid that took the toys from the sand-box.
