Clowns are never a laughing matter. Sinister fellows one and all.
Dressing as a clown to lure kids? That's like dressing as a wolf to lure deer. It's not going to work.
John Wayne Gacy did have a son, you know. You'll note that the article is from Chicago.
Did Gacy ever perpetrate crimes while in costume? I never knew he had a son, but I know one of his employees became a notorious serial killer. I think the explanation for the phantom clowns lies elsewhere. They have never physically hurt anyone, none of their vans have ever been identified or found abandoned, police have chased them without sucess.
What are we doing talking about Clowns when the real menace are Gnomes. See http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/weird/article1817406.ece and http://arbroath.blogspot.com/2008/03/little-person-dressed-as-gnome-stalking.html. Someone should talk to Judge Floro about this.
If you want to talk to the Judge go right ahead. Since you like gnomes, you should look up the video clip of a leprechaun in a tree.
The final nail in the coffin for clowns is that E-TRADE commercial with the talking baby who spends his earnings renting a clown and find he "really underestimated its creepiness."
Clowns kidnapped this weeks posts. Everyone go read Lloyd on mail delivery.
