This just in: Clowns are Scary!

According to a study of 250 children by the University of Sheffield in Britain, clowns are scary. "Every single young patient disapproved of using clowns to cheer them up. The big painted smile didn't persuade them, and even some of the older kids found them scary." (Source: NPR)


  1. In Kindermusik today, the teacher used an old fashioned jack-in-the-box as part of the lesson. When it popped up, one of the girls totally freaked out. So the teacher put it up high and out of the way. Then, in the middle of singing a song, the jack-in-the-box popped open all by itself. Freaky! That was it for the little girl. The teacher had to take it to another part of the house. The girl was in hysterics by the time her mom got there. Clowns ARE scary!

  2. That's really sad! I still get creeped out by clowns! I would have laughed if I was there. Hahaha!
