It’s official: clowns are scary

Clowns are too scary for kids in hospital and are not the best decoration for children’s wards, according to new research.

A survey found that decorating wards with images of clowns was more likely to frighten young patients than cheer them up.

I’m only posting this so I can quote Jack Handey.

To me, clowns aren’t funny. In fact, they’re kind of scary. I’ve wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.
