SAN DIEGO, CA - Violence erupted at the first ever all-midget clown convention Tuesday night after a gang of half-pint jesters got into a brawl in a bathroom stall.
The convention, comprised of clowns no taller than of 3 ½ ft, started off on a high note with several performers from the comedian community taking to the circus-inspired stage. Things took a turn when a commotion erupted in a nearby restroom.
According to several eyewitnesses, the brawl broke out when a farceur urinated in a private stall without closing the door behind him. The sound of the pint-sized picador's urination pouring into the commode annoyed the other occupants of the restroom so much that they threw bars of soap at him and began screaming expletives, followed by brutal punches.
San Diego police were called to the scene as the war between the little people exploded into a big mess.
A spokesman for the convention had no comment on the matter itself but expressed with much conviction that bathroom etiquette is a big deal in the midget community.
Monies raised from this year's convention registration fees will go towards the purchase of a nursery of baby tree bushes for next year's assembly so all of the little people can pee publicly in private.
