Dear 100 hour board,
Why are clowns (including and most especially mimes) so creepy? I know that there may be a social bias agianst them because of certain horror movies with clowns as the antagonist, but I have never seen any of these films, yet I still find clowns creepy. I have never really had a bad experience with a clown, but my gut feeling tells me that they are somehow evil, and not the least bit funny.
Mostly Respectfully Yours,
The face paint distorts the features and makes it so you can't read their faces very well. I guess that's kind of creepy because it's hard to interact with someone when you can't read their face very well--especially since they often have a fake happy face painted on, so they look happy but they could be . . . evil.
Do you think sad clowns are creepy? Come to think of it, I don't. Huh.
