Rainbow Sprinkles tells the tale of a kind-hearted, elderly clown and the politically-correct, uptight lawyer who interviews him for her son's birthday party. Miranda Giles-Hampton has set up an appointment during her lunch break to interview Rainbow Sprinkles to see if he is suitable to perform a clown act at her ten-year old son's upcoming birthday party. When the clown arrives, dressed in full costume and make-up, Miranda probes and prods at him, finding a reason that each of the most innocent parts of his act could be deemed inappropriate or politically incorrect. Sprinkles sadly agrees to the cuts and changes to his long-standing act, until Miranda insists that he change his rainbow-themed make-up, as it could be construed as homosexual propaganda. With his very clown identity called into question, Sprinkles has had enough and refuses to perform at the party.
