Whythenose.com is dedicated to the act of wearing a clown nose everyday,
in order to make people smile and create moments of precious human connection and presence in a digital, distracted world.

It’s here for YOU…to encourage you with an act of Heroic Uninhibited Innocence!

It’s really that simple. In a world filled with distractions and distrust,
you’d be amazed at how many people (of all ages) have lost a sense of childlike wonder.
Or maybe you wouldn’t…

Wearing a clown nose is fun, it’s easy,
and it’s free (if you already have the nose)

We’re not trying to sell anything, we’re only showing you how joyful it is to change someone’s day.
Trust us, the Nose breaks through barriers and opens doors every time you wear it…give it a try!

When you wear it and you’re waiting with a kind word, a laugh, a validation that you’re NOT crazy, just happy…MAN, that’s powerful powerful stuff!

Ultimately, one’sĀ attitude, your inner light, your reason raison d’etre that can make a difference in people’s lives and it’s a simple as the nose on your face.

Give LOVE and see what happens…

The idea is to be subtle…the reason it works is because everything ELSE about you is “Normal”, right?
The inclusion of the Nose is what creates the dissonance and that slight shift in “reality” is very important…
It can (gently) jar people enough to open that door, that opportunity in them for opening up and taking a chance,
taking a little risk to interact with someone they don’t know…who has on a clown nose!?!

The intent of WhyTheNose is pure joy and simplicity.
The pictures you see are as they occurred and, hopefully, capture the essence of that moment
when unexpected joy landed on the faces you see highlighted here.
Isn’t that what it’s all about?

YES? Then we’ve done our job.
Spread the word…just SMILE while you’re doing it!
