* Clowns? Bozo the Clown, Grock, Emmett Kelly, Karandash, Lou Jacobs, Otto Griebling, Oleg Popov, Albert Grimaldi. Fictional clowns will be [[CommediaDellArte Pierrot, Pulcinella]], Theatre/{{Pagliacci}}, Literature/{{Scaramouche}}, WesternAnimation/KokoTheClown, [[UsefulNotes/McDonalds Ronald McDonald ]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Krusty the Clown]]. Or, if you need a [[MonsterClown ScaryClown]]: real life serial killer John Wayne Gacy comes to mind, as does the fictional killer clown Pennywise from ''Literature/{{It}}''. The Joker from ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' might also count.

And maybe Misha (not [[Creator/MishaCollins the angel one]]), but only to those who spend too much time on the internet as well as the Music/SiIvaGunner community.

** The rest of France will usually be the Provence, though Bretagne (to show some cliffs), Reims (for the cathedral), Bordeaux (for the wine), Bayeux (for the wall carpet), the Mont Saint Michel (to have a castle, Arles (because of Creator/VincentVanGogh), Dijon (for the mustard), Cannes (for the Film Festival), Avignon (because of the song ''Sur Le Pont d'Avignon''), Le Mans (for the race ''24 Hours Of Le Mans''), Roland Garros (for the tennis tournament), Rouen (made famous by UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc), Marseille and Nice could get a small reference if you're lucky. If you're Catholic or know anything about Catholicism, you'll know a bit about ''[[Film/TheSongOfBernadette'' Lourdes]] where they have holy water that magically cures people.[[note]]It's ordinary water taken from a sacred spring.[[/note]]
