Title: Credit is due
Post by: BikerDude on September 29, 2016, 02:26:25 PM
I'd just like to send out a big thumbs up to all those behind the completely weird and random rash of clown sightings happening nationwide.

Anything that hints at something weird like this that just produces a nearly universal WTF is a worthy fucking endevour.
As long as it remains harmless.
I've always been a big fan of the Toynbee  Tiles for instance.

I was on board with the clown thing when they started out just standing around making people uncomfortable. It seems now though there are reports of clowns trying to lure kids into the woods so now I feel it's over the line. That's a good way to get yourself shot where I live.

As far as I can tell there is just one report (unsubstantiated) in NC.
This appears to be a sad case of clown profiling.
What is the world coming to when a clown can't even hang around without hurtful alegations? Good lord.

They ended up in several towns around here today.
It's nationwide now.
Clearly the work of some fiendish mastermind.
I love it.

There were quite a few reports of that particular clown trying to lure children away near that one apartment building but I'm pretty sure they arrested someone for that. There was also a few incidents of the clowns damaging property but that was when the whole thing first started. It is pretty amazing how it started a few clowns in one town using the foggy weather to mess with people and now it's an international thing haha.

Regardless of the few incidents I'm still a fan of the whole thing because it makes the never ended masses of the offended uncomfortable. They even stopped selling a few clown Halloween decorations in stores because they were deemed offensive which is just crazy.

It's in my nature to profile clowns...and pretty much everyone else I meet because I'm just a cautious person, too much time working in a prison has taken it's toll on my trusting side.
