I really didn't think about clowns until I had to work with one who kept telling me he had seen me out in public (would not tell me where) with my son. He was the most dour, and grumpy man I knew at the time. I only saw him smile when he was cackling at someone else's distress.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

:lol: A friend on mine's boyfriend told her he was going to circus school to train to be a clown - she dumped him. :lol:

Laugh at that Bozo! :twisted:

That's very creepy Tina. :shock:

There's a reason why Stephen King has a clown as the bad geezer in It... They're creepy and I think they're constantly plotting horrible things they would like to do to the people who laugh at them - brrrr!
I haven't got many phobias, but I would hate to be alone with a clown anywhere.

You've all seen Killer clowns from outer space I take it? :wink:
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

This is how I explain my fear of clowns: If you opened the door to your bedroom what would you rather see, a burgler or a clown just standing there, smiling.

It creeps me out the way they smile all the time... does the turtle have a pink ribbon around its right "arm"? I just noticed now :O But I do believe one of the weirdest phobias are Xanthophobia, which is fear of the colour or word yellow.

I thought that when I saw it as well - but if you look HERE on the site's main page, you'll see he/she is actually towing a banner. :wink:
