Inspired by the Silly Hack category, went with a circus theme for the color scheme

What it does

It returns a random joke and a picture when you click on the clown emoji.

How I built it

I used the "icanhazdadjoke" API and gave it a basic css design.

Challenges I ran into

I struggled to figure out the joke API because I needed it to return the information in a JSON format. I also tried to set up the name, but I didn't know how to work with DNS and hosting.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud of getting the joke functionality to work as well as adding in an extra picture functionality. I finally got the domain set up towards the end which was really exciting!

What I learned

I'm practicing getting used to implementing APIs and re-teaching myself some javascript.

What's next for TheClown

Making the pictures random everytime you click the clown for a new joke
