Scientists from the World Clown Organization, based in Montreal, Canada but with an international reach, descended on Times Square today to minutely examine the Time Square Shuttle.
The Shuttle has been of particular interest to clowns since it was noted by red Italian clown scientist Enferno Ricci that the number of people entering and exiting the cars of the Times Square shuttle far exceeded these cars’ capacity. Clown physicists have speculated wildly about the reason for this, looking at the problem from the perspective of reality torques, worm holes, and the multi-verse. Today’s team, with financial assistance from the European Union also used machines ranging from small hadron colliders to flux capacitors.
Why investigate at all? Many in the physical humor community think that this could lead to better jokes.
