Truth stranger than fiction?

Attention Dr. Locrian! This one's for you!

Zaffis has several other possibly evil clown puppets in that basement, along with a few thousand other inanimate objects that just might be possessed all part of his museum of the paranormal."

Possessed clown puppets!

Check out this news article to find out more...

The expectation that clowns ought always to be merry is as illogical as expecting puppets always to be still.
