Hands up who finds clowns creepy??
Personally I have always been quite terrified of them. Some unknown humanoid form in baggy pants and face completely covered... who knows what was lurking behind the white face and clown pants??? My clown paranoia has often been laughed about (excuse the pun), however it appears I am most definitely not alone.
I read a report about children disliking and/or being scared of the clown images used in medical facilities... the aim by the well meaning adults was to make the kids feel less intimidated by the medical surroundings, however that appears to have backfired.
see the report here http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7189401.stm
Join me people.. say NO to clowns!!
