"Don't Send In the Clowns"?

Kids in London were polled and it's official: Children don't like clowns. They "dislike" them and find them frightening. Well, dur! As someone who watched Poltergeist as an 8-year-old and Stephen King's It as a teenager, I can tell you that clowns are the scariest damn things on this planet. It's okay, though - I have sought therapy for this phobia.

It is about time someone realized this. I hated, hated, hated clowns as a kid. Made going to the circus quite a challenge, I can tell you. Not to mention buying schools for school as I remember balking at going into a store that had a clown. Hated em, hated me, hated me.

Wow, Monica! I didn't think it was possible for someone to hate clowns more than I do, but I think you get that award! Did you ever see "Poltergeist" where the boy's clown doll drags him under the bed and starts strangling him?!?! And then we send clowns to children's hospitals! Let's screw 'em up even more!

Sounds like group therapy is in order.
