Today’s clowns have white faces because the first clowns centuries ago would kill children that didn’t laugh by grinding up their bones. During this process the clown's face would become white with bone dust. Eventually, clowns were forced to stop killing children, but the implied inducement to laugh that the white face represented remains.

Sincerely,
