After Whysoserious.com was shut down, it redirected to Rent-a-clown.com, a fictional entertainment company. The employee pictures are actually pictures of the Whysoserious.com/ComicCon participants in Joker makeup. Letters and balls flash, and a cheery circus MIDI plays in the background.

[edit] Hidden message

Like Ibelieveinharveydenttoo.com after it shut down, there are hidden "ha ha ha"s and and stray letters, this time in the site's source code. After removing all the "HA"'s from the commented HTML code, the hidden message appears:

made you look




[edit] March 26, 2008

Recruitment text message duties are apparently transferred from humanresources@whysoserious.com to recruiting@rent-a-clown.com. Participants with cell phones receive the following message:

Hey clown! Long time, no crime spree! Well, put on your floppy shoes and answer this question: are you ready to get to work? (ReplyY/N)

Replying resulted in this message, suggesting a new game before April Fool's:

Glad to see you’re still alive and kicking. I’ll be in touch before Poisson d’Avril.

For the other phone-owners who did not manage to reply in time, the following was sent:

Sorry you were a little slow on the draw this time around, clown. But don't worry, the circus ain't over...

[edit] March 30, 2008

Participants are called on their phones by a live person and informed that they are one out of 17 recruits who replied to the text message on March 26. They are then given a letter and then told to share their letter with other "accomplices". If a cell phone owner is unable to be contacted, their letter is given to a participant who was already called.

"You ready for a job, clown? The boss wants me to start you off easy. I'm going to give you a secret letter."


The list of letters is as follows, as compiled by participants who have shared their letters on SHH!.

  • The Schlone: "W"
  • Xnbomb, Gupfee & Giskard: "E" as in "Elephant"
  • bassboy616 & Mr.Walken: "Y" as in "Yo-Yo"
  • punk: "R" as in "Ransom"
  • Pennyworth: "V" as in "Victim"
  • ianskyvox: "T" as in "Thief" (repeated), "O" as in "Operator" (original recipient of letter did not respond to calls)
  • BriGonJinn/GQJoker: "A" as in "Assault"
  • BigTonyVegas: "N" as in "Narcotics"
  • EddieNashton: "C" as in "Clown"
  • Screwpa!: "A" as in "Action"
  • vlkers54: "L" as in "Laugh"
  • fceeviper: "G" as in "Gun"
  • FlyingMonkey: "C" as in "Clown"
  • Gerik: "E" as in "Elephant"
  • Matt100: "L" as in "Laundry"
  • Fishtankbb: "N" as in "Network" (note: user was not able to report his letter until a day later, but the puzzle was solved by deducing the "N.")

A text message was also sent containing 6 extra letters:

You're paying attention bozos. Here's a few bookend letters to add to your 17 to make the destination clearer: wcwowm
