It's a small world after all! Hank and Veda met during the intermission at the annual puppeteers convention. It was love at first site when their dummy's eyes met, and it's been one-liners and stage patter ever since. Wooden ya know.

During the Medieval Clown Wars, the above machine was used for throwing pies, but with little accuracy. And then one day Sergeant Blippo prematurely fired a round while Private Chuckles was positioning a pie in the bucket, and away he went. Incredibly, Chuckles, by using his natural clown skills, scored a direct hit, and the 'Clown-A-Pult' was born! To this day it is the weapon of choice in any Clown Conflict!
