The curious death of a professional party clown on Sunday has gained the attention of Londoners, with some wondering if MI6 and the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were somehow involved.
"Turbee" the Clown died of an apparent case of appendicitis while performing a duet with an experienced midget. Information has since surfaced indicating that Turbee has links to the intelligence community.
Baxter the Clown, a contemporary of Turbee's who witnessed his death during Madam Suzette's "Reggie the Whimsical," has come forward and told the British press that Turbee once confessed to serving as a spy in North Korea for both MI6 and the CIA.
"He was allowed to perform in a Pyongyang circus under the assumed name of Kim the Clown," Baxter claims. "While there, he said he collected North Korean nuclear secrets from a second MI6 agent, whom he did not name."
Baxter said he suspected foul play after finding a bottle of Oxysplodo pills in Turbee's dressing room while collecting items to give to Turbee's next of kin.
"Oxysplodo is used to treat excessive nose hair growth in men," he explained. "Older men don't always know when they have a three centimeter piece of nostril hair dangling from their nose, so taking expensive drugs is a convenient way to deal with that problem. But one of Oxysplodo's 353 possible side effects is the sudden onset of an exploding appendix. The drug is also used by intelligence agencies to kill people."
MI6 and the CIA declined to comment.
