German Airports Hire Clowns to Entertain Stranded Travelers
With travelers stranded by hundreds of flight cancellations, Germany's busiest airport has hired clowns to help them and their children pass the hours, a spokeswoman said Monday.
"Four clowns are performing in the terminal halls," the spokeswoman for Frankfurt's international airport said.
"We came up with the idea for the kids, who are finding the delays particularly trying," she added.
The clowns, dressed in brightly colored costumes and some parading on stilts, started working at the weekend, when heavy snowfall led to hundreds of flights being scrapped amid chaos in the European air traffic network.
Fights broke out at the airport among stressed-out holiday travelers late Friday, according to press reports, leading police to send in reinforcements.
More than 1,000 stranded passengers had to spend the night from Sunday to Monday at the airport, where camp beds were set up in the terminals.

Oh, because what you want when you're stuck in an airport grounded by snow is a ...clown. :mad:
Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

I've been worried about my Hamps. He's traveling around Europe right now still I guess.
I hope he's not stranded off somewhere being terrorized by one of these airport clowns. :eek:
