In case you haven't been watching the news, there is a new 'trend' where folks are dressing as clowns to menace people.
It seems to have started in the States and now there are clowns popping up in areas of Australia.
Here's an article if anyone wants to get up to speed:
I see this all going downhill extremely quickly.
I heard on the news today that police have warned these 'clowns' that there will be charges for behaving like this, and have also warned that if a person attacks a clown then it will be considered 'self defence'.
You've gotta feel for those who are professional clowns. How are they going to go about their job without people suspecting they are one of the 'bad' clowns?
Anyway, feel free to share your thoughts on this. Does anyone have a genuine clown phobia? I can imagine this would be incredibly unsettling if so.
