The Clown Egg Register

Our friends at Futility Closet (hosts of Boing Boing's wonderful Futility Closet podcast) have a short item about The Clown Egg Register. Apparently, a clown's face can't be copyrighted, but if you decorate an egg with the clown's face, you can copyright that, which stops unscrupulous clowns in their tracks.

  3. Stop what you are doing right NOW and put Futility Closet on your bookmarks toolbar. If for nothing else, then for the two move chess problems which are fiendish. You're welcome.
