#MMM May Monster Madness Clowns

If you're anything like me, you find clowns to be scary as hell. You also love being scared so you seek out those things that make you want to pee your pants. I know exactly when my clown fear kicked in. The year was 1990, and Stephen King's epic novel IT becomes an even more epic mini-series. I was 7 years old, and had a Stephen King fan for a mother, so yes, I was allowed to watch it. Needless to say for year I was convinced that Pennywise and Freddy lived in my closet. 

I think the scariest thing about clowns is not that they are monsters, although Pennywise is, but just dudes in suits and make-up, so they are more reality based than say Wolfman.


  1. If you ever stumble upon the 80s movie "Clownhouse", I assure you that your clown-phobia will get much worse :D

  2. LOL I don't get the clown fear...they are funny looking but without the humor

  3. Here I am just getting caught up on these MMM posts and then boom I run smack dab into a picture of pennywise. Don't mind me as I rock back and forth in the corner. I hate clowns so much :(

  4. My grown son is terrified of clowns. I like to find the scariest pictures of clowns that I can and post on his FB page. Yes I guess that makes me a bad mom, but he gets even by doing the same with spiders on my page. Anyway I am always on the lookout for scary clowns.
