I’m pretty sure we’ve talked about this before but I think it was more of a question of the day. One day last week this was on”Good Question” on WCCO. Are clowns creepy or aren’t they?
I can’t stand clowns. Or, should I say, I can’t stand masks or people who appear to be hiding. I don’t like Ronald McDonald nor do I like “mascots” for things where people are in those silly costumes like a giant bear or anyone in any kind of costume that I can’t see their face or know who they are. It just creeps me out.
People like to say Steven King started the clown thing but I haven’t liked clowns since I was a child so sorry, he had nothing to do with it. Besides, there was a clown in IT but it wasn’t the main “scary” thing in that book and if you didn’t read it and only saw the movie, you’re really missing out on a good book. I hated the movie. They almost made it silly and stupid and I still to this day can’t figure out how Steven King let them do that to his brilliant novel. But, that’s a post for another day.
There were several things I didn’t know about clowns that were in this little news piece. That way back when, a lot of people who were on the run from the police and such, worked as clowns as a respectable way of hiding their faces.
There are a lot of people who do like clowns and all things mask-y. Where are you on it? Are you a fan of clowns or masks? What’s your take on hiding faces?
