Stay away from my phobia

If you've been reading a while you may know about my coulrophobia, also known as "irrational" fear of clowns. Frankly I find my fear quite rational.

They're evil and cannot be trusted and if I ever see one in my path I will run it over with my car and shoot it with a shotgun for good measure and not even feel remotely bad about it because they are Devil spawn. Then they won't be flashing that evil fake smile anymore when it's plastered into the pavement.

Fuck a clown, is my point.

So I'm watching the most recent episode of The 4400 just now. It's pretty clear somebody's manifesting fears on people. So this guy comes running down the sidewalk away from something that has him terrified and I'm thinking, "Oh, man. I couldn't handle that if I was chased by a clown with a knife."

And then the guy turns around and it's a mass of evil clowns trying to kill him.

Jesus Christ, 4400 writers, that shit is not funny. That should come with a damn warning label.

I'm going to hide in my closet until my daymares go away and my hands stop shaking long enough to put my heart back into my chest.

    Glad to know I'm not alone. Clowns are fucked up.

  2. I'm writing a horror script called Coulrophobia.

  3. Yeah well if you need to do any research on people who have it stay the hell away from me because I am not looking at any pictures of clowns.

  4. Haha. Guess I know what picture to use for my next blog entry. ;)

  5. I think people who fear clowns are highly intelligent and sensitive. Of course, I think clowns are creepy and my kids were terrified of them so I may be biased. ;-)

    Seriously, though, for people, esp. children, who *need* to see facial cues in order to gauge a person, clowns are a nightmare. Their facial cues are not only covered up by hideous makeup, but they're also often deliberately misleading. It makes sense from a psychological point of view why people would find clowns upsetting.

    Clowns are evil.


  6. Oh man, I never thought about that. Yeah, you can't tell what they're thinking. That might also explain why costumed characters make me nervous.

    Don't get me started on the Easter bunny.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
