creepy-ass clowns

Hi guys,

A short reflection on the limits of having fun with strangers ... or on how much of a moron some people can get. Maybe you heard it too in the news. This is the article I read about creepy clowns: http://mashable.com/2016/10/10/world-clown-association-condemns-creepy-clowns.amp

Yeah, ok, Halloween is coming, but should it mean we are entitled to go around cities and parks scaring the shit out of people there? People we know not, and who didn't enter any kind of game? I don't think so.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised, should this prank persist, that we started to hear about some of these teasers getting into trouble with ordinary people who are now warned about this and don't like to be outraged like that. Particularly in their own veranda or front door.

Finally, one open question. Of all the creepy, halloweenesque creatures in the world, from gory Frankesteins to zombis to mummies, why clowns?
