Vendor needs wacky clown to sell nuts in Hoboken

Many of you have noticed the “#1 Nut” vendor downtown selling peanuts, cashews, etc. for a few bucks a bag.

Apparently this is the ONLY vendor in town that needs to hire a friggin’ clown to promote their goods. Are they that hard to sell? I mean a freshly roasted bag of cashews or almonds pretty much sells itself. If they were in NYC and there were five other nut vendors nearby, I can see the logic in making yourself stand out. But with no competition?

And wouldn’t this wacky clown actually deter from sales? I know some girls who have “clown-phobias.”

Wonder what this guy’s “net net” is after he pays the clown, cost of nuts, etc. What’s he making, $20 bucks a day?

(PS – I think this is Hoboken Batman in one of his many “costumes.” Perhaps this is one of those rare instances where “pharmaceutical intervention” might be of use?)
