    Sometimes they do seem to be a little creepy...

    Funny this topic came up, while I was watching the 4th of July parade a group of clowns walked by and I turned to my kid and said "God I hate clowns." He looked at me and said "I thought it was only me." I got a chuckle out of that.

    I have always thought that a person who would cover their face with paint/makeup, and dress up in odd clothes, well, they must have something to hide. I would be very suspicious of said person, and especially if the person were to try talking in a silly or disguised voice.

    Wait just a minute... I think I described one of my ex-girlfriends, too...

    I personally cannot stand clowns. used to have a picture of one in my room as a kid, and it freaked me out every night. Then I saw Stephen King's IT and that was the absolute last of me and clowns.

    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Same here, I get the chills. I wasn't going to look up pictures, but I wasn't sure if everyone would know Pennywise... I've been proven otherwise.
    And they play that damn movie on AMC and those movie channels all the time... I always seem to catch it at the worst parts... the worst of it all being when the one guy is in the bathroom and you can hear Pennywise laughing in the pipes and all the blood comes gushing out of the sink. The first time I watched IT, it took me a couple days before I could stand over the sink to brush my teeth (I was only 11 or 12 years.)
