(WDAY TV) -- There's a shortage of clowns in Minnesota and all over the United States. According to the World Clown Association, membership has plummeted thirty percent over the past ten years to only 25-hundred people.

How did this happen? Some people say the shortage comes as older clowns are hanging up their big shoes and fewer people want to fill them. The main challenge is to get younger people in the business of clowning around for a living.
