    Always a 'silly' child, I chose the first name of a popular actor from 'West Side Story', Sal Mineo, for the second part of my clown name, Sillysal, when I began clowning on August 8, 1971.  I remembered the date quite well as it was the second birthday of my only child, Gregory Douglas Turner.  He'd requested a clown for his party and, finding none available to fulfill his request to be 'friendly' ... to let the kids touch them (even if their hands were sticky), to play WITH them and let him sit on their lap while he ate birthday cake and ice cream ... I became a clown!  


Laff It Up

  Some days all you can do is smile and wait for some kind soul to come pull your butt out of the situation you've gotten yourself into.

If You Marry AN Ohio Girl


Three friends married women from different parts of the Midwest.

The first man married a woman from Wisconsin. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Minnesota. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Ohio.. He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He still has some difficulty when he pees.
