Mideast Israel Clown Therapy
In a Tuesday, July 24, 2012 photo, Penny Hanuka, or Dr. Fifi, a Dream Doctors medical clown, speaks on the phone as she entertains Yael, a two year old baby girl at the Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba, central Israel. Most hospital clowns around the world step aside when a child gets a shot or goes under the surgical knife, but Israeli clowns are in the operating room and intensive care unit, teaming up with doctors to develop laughter therapies.(AP Photo/Ariel Schalit)
