Apology to the Shrine Clowns
In a previous Friday Picture I posted a picture of a clown funeral. While I thought this was a staged event, I only found out today, that this was actual footage of a burial. I have subsequently removed the offending picture and apologise to the McQuarrie-family for the insensitive nature of this post.
The picture depicted Duncan Alexander McQuarrie, a member of the Clowns at the Oleika Shrine who passed away at age 64 in 2004.
It was never the intention to mock McQuarrie or his family. As you know, the Friday Picture is typically controversial to raise awareness and sometimes even depict questionable content to make people think of current issues.
