Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 136. The noun phrase today is
class clown. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. A class clown is a student
who often deliberately ... so on purpose, makes a lot of jokes to entertain the
class. Yeah. Probably like every day. Maybe he'll do ... very often he'll probably
mostly yell things out, but he may do anything funny to try to make the
class laugh. Maybe he enjoys it. He maybe gets a little bit of a kick out of it.
And he does it a lot. That's what we call this. You know, often very often most
students might have one class clown. So that's what a class clown is. Okay. Let's
continue. Class clowns are often witty. You know, because they could usually
think of funny things to say right away. But may or may not be a disturbance or
annoyance to a teacher. It all depends depends on the whole environment. It depends
on the whole situation. If the student doesn't go too far and do it too often
and really stop or interfere with teaching. The teacher may not mind. You
know, the student may be comic relief. Every now and then say something funny.
You know, put everybody into relaxed mood and maybe even the teacher might find
some of the things that does or says funny too. But if he goes overboard , maybe
he could get into trouble. If he goes it does it too much or it goes too far or
just tries to make all jokes all the time where you know, it's actually
disturbing the class. So it all depends. It's a case-by-case basis. All right. Let's
continue. The word clown itself has been used since the 1600s to describe a
professional fool. Yeah. I remember like in the Middle Ages they used to have a , a
guy that was like a jester for the king and the Queen and the nobles. Okay. And it
took on the meaning of someone who acts inappropriately in the 1920's. So you can
call another person a clown. Sometimes kind of as an insult or like somebody's
a joke or a worthless person. He could be kind of like a
clown too. It is therefore natural to eventually have the term
class clown for a particular student that often tries to make the class laugh. So
they eventually started using it for that that's a class clown. Okay. Good. And
we just have two examples to finish up here. Example number one. Jack used to be
known or maybe he had a reputation for to be known as the class clown in grammar
school. Okay. Good. and number two here. The teacher told his
mother that Joey is the class clown. I don't know if your parent is that a good
thing or not. I'm not sure. It all depends. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it . I hope it was
clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
