If I didn’t fear clowns before, I kinda do now
Have you seen this?!
I haven’t been this creeped out since the cover of Eutopia stared at me in the book store.
I read IT when I was in my early teens and that son-of-a-bitch clown was terrifying. The television show based on Stephen King’s novel, not so terrifying, but Pennywise played by Tim Curry WAS.
That’s the brilliance behind Pennywise, you take a wonderful childhood icon and throw in some sharp teeth, a psychotic mind and a taste for the blood of children, and you have Pennywise. We are all secretly afraid of clowns, aren’t we?
Ah, but the child within is squealing with terrified glee – there is something magical about being afraid isn’t there? Admit it. No? Just me? Okay, well I might have to see a professional for that then.
But let’s take another look – we are heading towards Halloween after all.
I might just pee my pants if I saw this standing outside on my street at night.
But you all haven’t come here for the scare-fest – you have come here to learn something. So here you go.
Coulrophobic. The fear of clowns. Now sleep well my pretties.
Not all clowns are creepy and I don’t mean to generalize. Many clowns have been known to bring laughter and smiles to children. Many people have made a good living as a clown. Clowns help support our economy.
