The Sims Livin' Large Comic Strip - The Tragic ClownWhat's this? A new visitor? "Hey Lyon, you order a clown-o-gram or something? Man, musta been a cheap one."
The Sims Livin' Large Comic Strip - The Tragic Clown"No way, man. We haven't even got enough Simoleons to hire a BAD clown. Beat it, Bozo." But the tragic clown just gazes back sadly, a caricature of their own suffering. And then, he begins to juggle.

The Sims Livin' Large Comic Strip - The Tragic Clown"What can we sell quick?" "I say we get rid of the clown painting. We got enough clowns around here already."
The Sims Livin' Large Comic Strip - The Tragic ClownAnd so it is done. When they return from the flea market, the brothers are riding high. High enough, perhaps, to finally spare a smile for the tragic clown who haunts their home. But, as strangely as he arrived, the clown is gone.
