Stories are all around us

Here's my favorite opening paragraph from a news story in recent memory. It's from today's Salt Lake Tribune.

"A Salt Lake City man allegedly violated a protective order by showing up at a woman’s house dressed as a clown and leaving some banana bread at her door."

I'm thinking this would make one hell of a writing prompt.

If I had a nickel for every time I've had a man with a restraining order dressed as a clown show up at my door with banana bread!

A good loaf of banana bread makes all the clowns in the world worth it.

I'm thinking you made this up - it is just too good. Or better, you probably paid the guy in the clown costume to drop off banana bread you had made to drop off at the poor woman's doorstep, just to have material this good!
