In these tough times, people are resorting to all kinds of creative ways to make a little extra money.
Take Florida resident Pablo Izquierdo, for example, also known as Pablo the Clown. His hours were cut-back, and his wife lost her job completely.
So he dusted off a costume he had lying around the house and started performing on the streets of Miami, juggling and rollerblading for donations.
"My wife is out of a job and my salary is not as before, so this is something that I love to do because I used to use this costume for my son's birthday and my daughter's birthday. So now I'm doing this for all the people because I can make them happy," Izquierdo said.
As one might imagine, Pablo's performing was somewhat of a traffic hazard -- especially during rush hour.
He was not arrested, but police asked him to move his show to a safer location.
