This is local news. Long Island has had some problems with clown violence the past few months. No, that's not a joke. Yes, there have been attacks.

At Haunted Houses, the new thing (for at least the last five years [when I started going to haunted houses again]) was this 3-D Paint. This bright neon looking paint, when you put on the glasses, looks 3D. It's a really cool effect.

As I said, it's really bright neon colors, so most places tend to use this paint in a "Scary Clown" theme. Obviously, the clown escaped from their cages and have been terrorizing the neighborhood. Clearly they're keeper was asleep on the job.

Would they much rather prefer SCARY-amounts of 'makeup' on "supposed" regular-folk? We have that here, and "driving" 'Public Transit' even. surprise

This alert was just sent out by our school to parents:

Quote:
We have received a threat against the school that mimics the national/regional trend where social media profiles associated with clowns make threats against organizations/schools. At this time the threat does not appear to be credible, but we have been working with CSPD to ensure the safety of our campus.

I saw a story yesterday where they were interviewing the President Elect of some national clown organization (no, not the GOP) and asked her if this Scary Clown thing was affecting the perception of clowns. I guess it keeps getting bigger every Halloween season with people dressed as evil clowns scaring people. That story was in response to a kid getting chased by a scary clown with a knife

It's good to know that all the technology and communication of the modern age doesn't make humans immune to good ol' silly mass hysteria.

Wait...is that good to know?

We just had the same thing at my high school, although we didn't go on lockdown for it.

The email I got this afternoon. The most alarming thing in it is the overuse of quotation marks:

Quote:
Everyone,

We have been made aware that the "clown" situation is appearing all over the country and in Xenia on social media. Some of our students have done a good job of informing us right away, and although this is thought to be a "hoax", we will have police on school grounds at dismissal today. If students are nervous, please remind them we are in a very safe place with locked doors, lots of cameras, and many security measures. However, please be vigilant this afternoon with monitoring students and keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary.

Yea this whole thing of people dressing as clowns as creeping people out has been escalating. I expect someone to shoot one of these dumb fuckers if this keeps up.

It has been going on in Wisconsin for several months now. Hilarious, until the shotgun blast. What some clowns won't do for their art.

cool Just recently 'got' that "Yukon"-doll from "Rudolph the RED-nose Reindeer", while shouldn't this depict some ""Gold-rush era""-figure of 'lore'?

Don't anyone tell my son or he'll be calling in clown sightings to the principal's office on a daily basis.
