Buy Ray’s clown collection!

An estate sale is being held to sell off the belongings of the late Ray Rustigian, the longtime emcee at Pollardville. We toasted Ray in this column.

Ray’s belongings are standard, except for a couple things that made me laugh out loud — but only because I knew what a joyous ham he was. You can spot them in this ad.

Ray’s clown collection. You gotta love it. Plus — of course — the mic and karoke machine. You can just picture the parties, with Pollardville’s limelight-loving regulars ping-ponging between the bar and the karaoke machine. As for the “size large clean and tasteful men’s suits,” the ad doesn’t mention that many of them are sequined.
