It's not evil it's funny.

I was thinking I should go edit the Wikipedia page on Coulrophobia (A phobia of clowns) and upload this:

Imagine poor clown-fearing people searching for help on the interwebs, only to encounter a big picture of the thing they fear the most.

Alternatively you could put a link up there with the text "Help resources for sufferers" and link that to the picture.

People would be losing their shit.

So I wouldn't say I have a phobia, but I really don't like clowns. They creep me out. I blame some TV show I saw when I was a kid where a clown stalked some teenagers in a house of mirrors, but I don't remember for the life of me what show it was. Just, eww.

Can't sleep, clowns will eat me.

The end.

Yep, that is a freaky and disturbing coincidence.

Damn you JC! You're psionically projecting!

That is torturously evil. You bad man, you. O.O

I'm with Amanda - I don't have a fear of them but they are quite a bit creepy. At the very least, they're very un-funny.

I lose my shit all the time. I put it down, forget where I left it, that sort of thing.

Steph said...

There is something inherently evil about clowns and men with beards.
*shudder*. I think it has to do with hiding their faces or some shit, I dunno, best I ask my shrink next week.

Does anyone actually like clowns? I feel like their only gigs these days are haunting the dreams of children. Incidentally, the pay for that kinda sucks.

Amanda: Clowns and mirros are freaky. Multiple Reflection Clowns sounds like a psychological condition and no doubt causes one.


Mikey: Wowowowowowowow...

Non Blondie: Even after all the good birthday presents I got you? Including the life size plush clown?

Dune: Yes, there's nothing funny about clowns. Unless they're being injured.

FD: Why are you carrying around your shit? Do you carry it in leopard print underwear, which you also apparently lose all the time?

Steph: So basically, the worst case scenario for you would be a clown with a beard... Actually, that's a worst case scenario for anyone. I bet even your shrink would be freaked out by that.

Pistols: Yeah, they haunt kids dreams by night, but by day they dress as old men and stare at small
children in playgrounds. The pay for that is crap too, but they still somehow afford all that candy. Someone needs to check clown's taxes...

Anonymous said...

That's the clown they used to illustrate the "Clown" entry?

Isn't it the clown from "It"?

I saw that picture yesterday, and had to work up the nerve to open your page again. That was evil, sir... EVIL.

I don't think that any sane minded person actually likes clowns. If they do, well, they can stay away from me too.

Kae: Yep, it's Pennywise... Sorry to make you shudder.

Gnugs: I'm sorry! Not evil though.
I agree that there clowns have no appeal at all to normal people... Unless they're strung up pinata styles.
