The Only Good Clown...

Coulrophobia is most commonly triggered by a traumatic experience in childhood, said Steven Luel, a psychologist in New York specializing in anxiety and phobias.

Indeed, that was the case with Wallace. At the age of 6, she met her first clown at the circus, an encounter she still remembers clearly 25 years later.

“A clown got right up in my face, and I could see his beard stubble under his makeup. He smelled bad and his eyes were weird,” she said.

Creepy b@$& @#ds...

I will never, ever do clowns, unless it's a pile of dismembered...no, nope, never.

You have no clue what's under the grease paint. They coax you in with the smile, or the antics and then when nobody else is watching, the teeth show.
