What Is An Assclown?

Update: Our new reader “Major Nelson” seems to be having comprehension trouble with the concept of “assclown.” To help out I’ve decided to repost this topical piece.

I’ve been using this phrase quite a lot lately, and I’ve gotten several e-mails from Friends, asking me about it. “Joe” they say, “what exactly is an assclown?” To make it simple I will illustrate the subject. This is an assclown:

Let me entertain you...

An assclown is obviously a co-joining of the ass – a self-important, overblown ego, and the clown, a buffoon. The former personality is almost inevitably drawn into clownishness by his inability to judge his own behavior by the same standards that everybody else does.

And to venture from the general to the specific, we find a perfect representative of the type in a man who is continually seeking political office, whose ambition and crazy inflated sense of self-worth make him believe that faking an address and lying about it on voting registration documents is okay because it is in his best interest; a man who believes carpetbagging is fine because without it the people of some district where he doesn’t live would be deprived of his “trusted, respected, and endorsed” self.

This assclown is perfectly willing to exploit his family members as stage props in his little life’s comedy no matter how foolish the spectacle may be.

To know me is to laugh at me.

And that, Friends is an assclown.

    Yep. Sidhu is an assclown, alright.

    Point of clarification. Isn’t somebody who supports an assclown an assclown, too? Or just an assclown enabler?

    Perfect example of an assclown. And yes, anyone supporting one is one.

    Sup Nguyen, with inflated ego, is the king at the moment.

    How did you guys get Sidhu to don that clown outfit and strike a pose? You guys are good.

    Gee whiz, FFFF is defaming me. My wife, Jane of Barbarella fame, uh I mean Susan’s replacement, and I are upset that FFFF thinks I am the clown of Fullerton. Whoops, my mistake. FFFF refers to another clown.

    Thank you for that clarifying post, Joe. Next could you explain what an “asshat” is? I think that word’s even cooler.

    Would people who buy useless buildings qualify? If so then Tom Daly should be at the top of that list as well as Renee Ramirez for trying to pose as a republican. What assclowns!

    I love this word. I just heard it a couple of weeks ago. It really describes the tea baggers well. Also “shitballs” is another nice new word I have picked up recently.
