    Sad.

    Observing a moment of silence would, I suppose, be particularly appropriate.

    Greatest? Leave it to the French to claim the "greatest" clown.

    Leave it to this forum to take a note about an internationally reknowned artist dying and turn it into a joke and a ******ing match about what clown is "better"...

    Whether you happen to like clowns or not, show at least a little respect for the departed, people. Do you really think the kind of comments that have been posted here would be tolerated if they were about a deceased firefighter?
