And Just When I Think Nothing Can Depress Me, I See The Trailer For This Happy Little Circus Story

from the official synopsis;

In 1937, a "Happy" clown is forcibly recruited to serve in the Spanish Civil War, where he massacres an entire platoon with a machete still in costume.
In 1973, near the end of the Franco regime, the clown's son, Javier, follows in his father's footsteps to become a clown, but he is too miserable to be funny and is instead relegated to play the part of the Sad Clown. There he is repeatedly humiliated by the Happy Clown Sergio for the entertainment of others. Javier later falls in love with Sergio's gorgeous acrobat wife, Natalia. A love triangle ensues between the three of them, and the two clowns engage in a horrific battle with one another.

YIKES! I both hate and fear the Circus so I will be avoiding this one for as long as I am able.

You love the circus don't you MD? I knew that if I dug deep enough I would discover your deepest shame. It's just as horrible as I imagined.
