We've always wondered why it was universally decided to have all clowns wear a red nose instead of any other color. Is there something about red that is much funnier than purple, orange, or even green? As it turns out, the red makes the nose stand out and look comically larger when up against the white makeup on the rest of the face. That got a little too scientific for us so if you find a funnier reason (they are clowns after all) please be sure to let us know! For now you can look even sillier with this red blinking clown nose. Just flick on the switch and not only will you have a giant red ball for a nose, but it will also light up for an even more fun look. Not really a fan of clowns? This nose works perfectly for a Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer costume as well! We definitely know why that nose is so important!
