FEAR OF CLOWNS
According to Gary Lewis and the Playboys, “Everybody loves a clown.” Many people who are terrified of clowns would disagree. In the The Playboy’s 1965 hit, the singer is a sad, misunderstood “clown” who is never taken seriously by anyone, especially the girl he loves. But for those suffering from Coulrophobia, Clown Phobia, a clown is not an object of pity, but an object of great fear.
Now ( September, 2016) there are Clown Sightings being reported. This is completely bizarre. A clown standing “silently by the road.” A wooded area behind an apartment complex in Greenville, SC has been reportedly “over-run with clowns.” Just like Alien Abductions, these “sightings” and unsubstantiated. It could be some kind of group hysteria, it could be pranksters copycatting each other, or it could be a hidden population of psychotic clowns, their hour come at last, slouching through the woods to kidnap your kids.
