Humorous - Sunday Stamps II

Not an easy theme for me as I seem to have used all my cartoons and Edward Lear poem stamps.

There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a Bee;
When they said, 'Does it buzz?'
He replied, 'Yes, it does!'
'It's a regular brute of a Bee!'

All this old man could find was a clown on a circus poster stamp from a USA series in 2014.

USA - 5 May 2014
There were 16 stamps in this series but the only one I have is the clown to make me smile - no bee in my bonnet, you see.

For more smiles or something odd please visit Sunday-Stamps-II-120.

The circus posters set is one of the best sets USPS has released in recent years.

Nice to find a clown with his wee bonnet do your punch line:)

Clowns are certainly an oddity - simultaneously funny yet creepy.

I remember this set of USA stamps! I find clowns a bit creepy.

Hi Bob, sorry for the late visit. I'm glad that you have received the rooster stamp. Thanks for letting me know! I'm honestly scared of clowns after watching American Horror Story TV series. Nice poem to go with the stamp though!
