Has everyone heard about the "creepy clown sightings"? The most common example being people dressed as clowns standing in the woods near places frequented by children, sometimes trying to lure them with promises of candy or cash. So far no children have been reported to have been attacked, but a few adults have claimed to have been. Some people are lying, but a lot of the sightings are real.
So why do you think this started? Will it get worse? Will professional clowns have a difficult time getting work? Will people write more clown pastas? Will "It" and "Killer Clowns From Outer Space" come back into theaters for a limited time? Personally, I hate clowns. If I saw one I would scream, "CLOWN!!!!" and run.
