The Clown Problem

Postby skibear » Fri Jun 18, 2010 9:18 pm

The Clowns are coming to take you away, Ha, Ha. ROTFLMAO


On NPR yesterday they said more people are afraid of Clowns
than they are of flying on an airplane - not that I believe any of this!


Quoting NPR:
"Coulrophobia, or fear of clowns, is the third most common phobia in Britain.
To help combat that fear, John Lawson's Circus in the U.K. is offering "clown-seling,"
a pre-show therapy session to help people overcome their fear. Michele Norris talks
with Paul Carpenter, aka Popol, a clown who helps with the sessions."

Killer Clowns

I'm scared of shadow puppets and balloon animals! JK. Ever seen the flick Killer Clown From Outer Space? Highly recommended, unless you have an irrational fear of clowns that is. :lol:
Waiting until I can think of a good 1...

Are we talking about the clowns with make-up? Or the ones in politics, business, religion, and on the freeways of southern California?

Having been a circus clown for years I have to confess it's all true. We did eat many small kids and kicked small dogs just for the fun of it. We were seriously depressed individuals hiding behind the make-up quietly waiting in dark corners ready to scare the living shit of you. But of course there is the lighter side. We loved juggling and throwing pies at each other. Riding in small cars with a bunch of other clowns. Boing boing Zoink!!!!

I have been proposing for a while now that the plural for clowns (a group of 2 or more) should be "problem".

I.E. "One clown has the potential to be a problem, but as soon as there are two or more, you have a definite problem of clowns."

You bozos can say what you want, but I often dress up in my clown costume and hang out in crawl spaces.
