Apparently years and years of medical schooling isn't enough to make good doctors. They also need to go to ... clown school!
Just kidding. A charity in Northern Ireland is recruiting clowns to entertain sick children in hospitals and hospices:
Clowndoctor Elaine Duncan, aka Dr Twinkle, said she loved to see the smiles on children's faces.
"The children have the choice whether they want to chat or play with us as we want to make sure they feel as comfortable as possible," she said.
"It's great when you do something that makes them giggle and you know they are having fun."
