You're not alone. I hate clowns and I know why. When I was really little, my grandparents took me to the circus and this clown scared me on purpose. He had on black glittery eye stuff, so that when he closed his eyes, it looked like he had big sparkly holes in his head. He spotted that I was spooked and came over to where we were sitting and kept opening and closing those creepy eyes. My grand dad caught on what to what was happening, didn't punch out Bozo because my grandmother stopped him, and we never went to the circus again.<br><br>Wild horses couldn't to drag me to a circus today. I hate clowns.<br><br><br>[color:blue]Silk suit, black tie, I donít need a reason why.</font color=blue>
I agree.<br>Well I don't hate clowns so to speak in a spooky way, I just think they are stupid <- wait that does not sound right ? ahhhh I just think that clowns are NOT funny at all, even as a kid I thought clowns were just freaks and this means Red Skeleton too. Clowns to me don't look funny or act funny, just freaky.<br><br>Where in this society has directed the population to even hire Clowns for a child's birthday party as a must have attraction ? ? I dunno but I was asked by a woman once if I was going to have Clowns at one of Jazzes birthday parties, I said obsoletely not and if you see any clowns on my property "shoot" them on the spot ! I then gave her a bag of rubber bands, enough ammo for the job <br><br>At that time at my locality <br>Clowns were mostly made up of inspiring actors "sorta" a part of the road trip thangy to becoming an actor ? ? Personally I feel a Clown role would have been better suited for a "comedian" but I guess comedians don't wanna stoop that low and left that to the actors ?<br><br>

I'm not into clowns either, not traumatized by them,<br>I just don't find them "funny" at all. But "CLown" was<br>kewl. I never saw him in make-up, nor doing prat falls.<br>I guess what he really was was a damn good juggler.<br><br>But I know HE was into it! To hear him, aspiring to be<br>a clown was his highest ambition in life. There was no<br>one more proud of being admitted to CLOWN COLLEGE<br>in Florida, nor as proud of graduating with honors, nor<br>as happy when accepted for the job, as was my friend.<br><br>So, yeah, like ya' said; I guess it's all rather subjective. <br><br>
