The clowns in Kemper County, Mississippi passed an ordinance banning clowns. The only difference between the two is the latter wear costumes.
The Kemper County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance during its regular meeting on Monday that makes it unlawful for any person of any age to appear in public in Kemper County in a clown costume, clown mask or clown makeup. The ordinance was signed into effect by Kemper County Board President Johnny Whitsett at 11:28 a.m. on Monday and expires the day after Halloween.
The ordinance is enforceable by the Kemper County Sheriff's Office and violators can be fined up to $150.
I was rather surprised a county in Mississippi would pass an asinine ordinance like this. Then I realized Democrats infest every state in the Union. Come to find out Barack Obama won Kemper County with a whopping 64.1% of the vote. It all makes sense now.
