So, let’s take a poll. How many of you agree with 250 British children in your disdain for clowns? Apparently, every single one of those kids, who ranged in age from 4 to 16, found the clowns frightening.
I never found clowns frightening. Some were a little weird, but some were funny! The only part of a clown’s act that I found a little unnerving was when they started making balloon animals. I always waited for the balloon to pop, because on a few occasions, it had. So I would listen to that squeaking noise balloons make, thinking “oh god, at any moment, it’s going to pop!” But I never hated clowns, just balloon animals. Am I alone in this?
