Long before clowns were evil things living in sewers and haunting the 7 layers of hell, clowns were known to be entertainers. They tended to use pratfall jokes, mechanical humor, simple magic tricks and practical joke gags like this squirting yellow flower to delight children or entertain circus goers. Thankfully, the concept of a clown as an entertaining is enjoying a vigorous renaissance, which is probably why a classic prank prop like this squirting flower is in such high demand.
No, this squirting flower isn’t a new creative way to water your indoor houseplants. It is a classic practical joke used by clowns and magicians the world over. The fake flower is worn on the lapel or held in the hand. It is presented to the mark and they are asked to smell it. When they lean in close enough, you squeeze down on a little bulb and the yellow flower squirts out a tiny, harmless jet of water.
