Coulrophobia aka Clown Phobia

I had never really found clowns particularly scary until I saw this charmer at Carnaval this past weekend. On the surface she seems nice, making inflables sweet balloon animals for the kids (notice that monkey in the front row). But the demonic gleam in her eye in the photo above hints towards a darker side:

It might just be me, but the lilting incantations coupled with the oddly unrhymed phrases is more than a little bit creepy.

Even if JJ wasn’t frightened, I was.

    that lunch-box should be serving kids in a cafeteria somewhere, not entertaining small children.

    i think i saw her/him in a mini skirt on lower polk street once.

    i hope i never see her in a mini skirt on polk.
    1. the clown seemed to have fun
    2. JJ (a small boy) seemed oblivious
    3. me – only had fun when i concentrated on the balloon animals

    I’ve seen her several times on the 22. She just looked exhausted and sad.
