“There are two types of people in this world. People who hate clowns…and clowns.”
― D.J. MacHale,
The Quillan Games

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ve already learned that I am not a fan of clowns. No way, no how. And although the clown from the Osceola County Fair pictured here certainly looks harmless and friendly enough, I’m sure he must have fangs in his mouth or perhaps horns hidden under his hat. Sure, he looks innocent now — but wait until you see his face in the dark of a nighttime storm, grotesquely illuminated by flashes of lightning and emphasized by the foreboding crash of thunder. Yeah…I bet you wouldn’t hold your hand out to him then.

Be careful out there.

  1. Hello Earl!
    Oh yes, I remember you mentioning that you’re not too fond of clowns. I’m not crazy about them either. They always terrified me as a child, and I still get the heebie-jeebies 😀
