A Clowny New Year

Oh dear. Wonder how many stories like this we’ll see in 2011?

Let’s Face It: They’re Scary.

I once wrote a story in which clowns were really extraterrestrial life forms that lived on the fear of human children. (Then someone said “That sounds kinda like Killer Klowns,” and I said “How would I know?”)

I knew I couldn’t be the only one to have that idea, but I didn’t know one poll found clowns are universally disliked by children, even children who weren’t humiliated at the circus.

Imagine it. You’re in a kid’s hospital, ill, understanding little and already doing your damnedest not to be terrified, and there are clowns.

On your walls.

At night.
