In our search for health, safety and a bit of a laugh we teamed up sleuth reporting journalist Mike Hogan from Dublins 98fm and his super hero side kick – Orlaith; to discover the litigious implications of wearing clown shoes in work. Hence last Friday Night live on Dublins 98 was a little wackier than usual.
This rather random situation came to light when a Russian clown was banned from wearing his clown shoes as they were deemed a health and safety risk (i wonder if he was still allowed carry his over sized mallet??). Anyway Mike called us to test the theory and with hours the clown shoes were ready for testing in the radio studios. After all it was win win, either he falls on his face (and we laugh) or he successfully looks like a complete clown (…and we laugh).
The best part of it is that Mike got very attached to the shoes in the end – keep an eye out – Mike Hogan in clown shoes, coming to a LUAS near you soon!
