Residents Of U.K. City Spooked By Creepy Clown Lurking Outside Homes

clownThis is why you can’t go outside anymore these days. Via the Herald Sun:

A clown – with red wig and full make-up and sometimes holding balloons – is freaking out residents of one English town.

He is red-haired and white faced and has surfaced several locations across Northampton, a town of 215,000, over the past few days since his first appearance on Friday the 13th.

The Northampton Clown – which has exploded on social media in the UK – has even sparked a police warning. Police said they were looking to track two teenagers who were caught dressed as clowns, and had been caught acting in a peculiar fashion.

A woman alleged that the clown had knocked on her door in full clown attire before then offering to paint her window sills.

Many have been left feeling frightened by the clown. As reported: “He doesn’t juggle. He doesn’t twist balloons into animal shapes. He just stares.”

    the Insane Clown Posse rides again
    all will be made Juggalos
    like it or not

      Guess we all might as well start huffing paint if that’s where we’ll end up anyway. I’ve heard happiness is inversely proportional to living brain cells anyway.

      Thus it was written in the Book of Binky, as received by the prophet Bozo, PBUH.

      NO.

      • BuzzCoastin

        your very reaction
        proves the point

        • InfvoCuernos

          I would ride against this “posse” until my full sized horse give out under me.

    That poor clown. The entire town must have been royally freaked out by
    Stephen King’s IT.

    Something Alan Moore conjured into this reality by accident, maybe?

  • Chugs Rodiguez

    come on people didn’t anyone instantly think of Pennywise the Dancing Clown from Stephen Kings “IT”.

    • atlanticus

      “come on people”

      Do you mean the people in the town, or the people in the comments? Because DeepCough made a reference to “IT” 7 hrs ago…

  • The Well Dressed Man

    I’d like to share some unsettling information. There is a clique of “porn clowns” that turn up at sex parties in a certain urban area. At one event they brought a human-sized structure they called the “groping box.” Nope!

    Awesome. One of my fondest memories is of getting ready for school in 8th or 9th grade when the local news warned that a hatchet-wielding clown in full makeup had been spotted running around town.
