Amidst a year widely recognized as a near-humorless slog, a Wisconsin uncle brought us a fleeting moment of joy this week, attaching a silly-ass skeleton to a quadcopter and buzzing passersby. As a great poet once foretold, however, poor Death hast died.


Just a day after the uncle’s heroic efforts to “[fuck] with people” were first publicized, the “evil clown” jokers have already ruined it with their bullshit, doing the same thing but infinitely wacker.

“[R]eport of a 5ft #clown figure flying in the sky over houses,” wrote @pdxalerts, a Twitter account monitoring Portland-area emergency scanners, Tuesday evening, “possibly hanging from a drone.”


Rest in peace, wacky shit suspended from drones, you were far too pure for this wicked Earth.
