Here’s a question that’s been troubling me.
It’s about the red rubber nose gene, most commonly seen in the North American clown. Is the gene dominant or recessive? If it’s dominant, why aren’t there more clowns? If it’s recessive, might I be a carrier of this gene, at risk for birthing a clown baby? And is it linked to the big floppy shoe gene? Or are clowns a natural mutation–and are they sterile, like mules?
Science never answers questions I care about.
