BRAWLING CLOWN AND POLICEMAN: Regular guy Mitch Cooper captured video of a clown chasing and brawling a police man in Milwaukee, Wis., and it now seems to be a a viral hit.

Cooper told TV station WTSP. HuffPo.

But even more fun than her photos is her logic. She recently said in a video that she tilts her head because her neck is too slender to support it. HHAHAHhahahahahaha!See the photos, read more on HuffPo.
