(and by the way, I know I’m being incredibly un p.c.– but www.clownsexmachine.com is available.
Possibly Kendall and Co. should snatch that up before someone else does and uses it for their own nefarious purposes. Clown porn could be a big business! and works pretty contrary to the whole ClownsExMachina.com theme.)
