Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

It reminded me of this:

Northampton Solves the Mystery of The Creepy Clown - The Atlantic

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

More sightings:

Clown warning issued in Middle Tennessee

A warning was given by the Tennessee Department of Safety and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) on Saturday. The agencies took to Twitter posting, "Watch for clowns in your area. They could be child predators seeking kids" and "Watch for clowns trying to lure children into the woods. They are possibly predators."

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

Once again, we are reminded of how easily people fall prey to mass hysteria. In an age where folks of all stripes carry camera phones we should have tons of photographs of these sinister critters. Yes, we should...
It's just the birth of yet another urban legend.
Soon, hoaxers will provide us with photographic proof.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

Of course, these clowns may simply be unfortunate alien abductees. After their free rectal exam, they may have been dressed as clowns and teleported back to earth. It may be the Aliens' subtle commentary on human nature.

It's the only rational conclusion.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

I wonder if younger members are familiar with Lon Chaney Sr. observation on "the Clown at midnight"? It's as good a definition of the Uncanny as any I've ever encountered. Look it up.

I'm not a fan of Clive Barker but I always remembered "Dread." The first half was extremely powerful; the second, extremely silly. When you are promising to reveal the Ultimate in horror and it turns out to be yet another homicidal clown...well, 'nuff said.
It's the most uneven story I've ever read.
"The Damnation Game" was a good horror novel though.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

Clown Sightings Not Always a Laughing Matter (Live Science)

Quote
The situation is no joke to the police. In regions where clown appearances are on the rise, local and state officials are monitoring descriptions and urging people to report suspicious individuals or activities -- especially if they might pose a threat to children -- though as yet there have been no specific warnings issued in connection with Halloween....

In most of the encounters, those who glimpsed the clowns did so from a distance, and emerged from the encounter rattled but unharmed. However, one teen in Summitville, Tennessee, told WKRN-TV, "I thought I was going to die," when a knife-wielding person in a clown mask approached him from behind and slashed his hand. The clown fled the scene and an investigation is still underway, WKRN reported.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

The latest development involves what might be read as an antinatalist twist:

Clown attack forces schools in Reading to cancel classes

WCPO Cincinnati, September 30, 2016

READING, Ohio -- Schools in Reading canceled classes Friday after a woman reported being attacked by a clown overnight. The attack was reported just hours after Colerain Township police arrested a junior high school student on charges related to an online clown-related threat.

A woman said a man dressed in a striped outfit, a red wig and a white clown mask grabbed her around the throat as she sat smoking on her porch on Terrace Drive around 4 a.m. Friday. The woman told police the clown told her: "I should just kill you now" and "students and teachers (will) wish they were never born at the junior and senior high school today."
Oh, and it's seriously spreading across the U.S. Here are several interesting items from yesterday and this morning:
