Yesterday, a clown boarded the G train, which is notoriously slow and unreliable. Reports a witness: “Made a sock turn into a red bra. Also, balloon tricks and whistling. Got way more dough from straphangers than the usual train entertainment crews like mariachi bands.” Now you know that the clown route is the way to go if you’re aiming to make money on the G … at least the week before Halloween.
