For some reason this has always cracked me up:
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.

This will forever crack me up as well: RNC Clown College. And may lead to an even deeper fear of clowns than I ever thought possible...
