I saw this in the form of a one-panel cartoon, on a newspaper comics page. I thought I'd have a go at telling the story without the picture:

A man is sitting behind a desk. One knows that it is his desk, his office; that he is in command here.

In front of the desk, in two reception chairs, are a man and a woman. They look concerned, but hopeful; one senses that they want to believe what the man behind the desk is saying to them, and that they are beginning to do so.

He is wearing an earnest expression, and a clown suit, with full makeup and wig.

"Forget military school," he is saying. "Nothing will toughen up your son like clown school."
