2016 clown sightings

Post by Sim Kid » Tue Oct 11, 2016 1:25 am

I'm surprised you haven't posted a thread on this yet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_clown_sightings
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/201 ... ds-britain
http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/05/health/cr ... mors-trnd/

What the article has not mentioned about what happened in this part of the world is that someone threatened to dress as a clown and shoot up a school via social media.

Seriously, what's up with these clowns? Is it like some kind of viral marketing for the upcoming It remake that got way out of control?

Someone thought it would be funny and the story on them went viral, so more people thought it would be funny, and so on. It's a bit old at this point, and a lot of the people doing it also seem to think it even makes calling in threats funny.

How do they know a clown's calling in threats if they can't see them over the phone? Dumb joke.

^The clowns make their threats with online videos.
Also, they're not all bluster; there's been at least one instance of a clown assaulting somebody.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

^Uh oh--------orphaned conversation due to edit. Or maybe IRHP is just going crazy in his brain-meats. Which is it, IRHP? Do you know where you are? Look--------eyes watching you from around the corner! Are you sure you exist?

alas

irhp, best forumer, succumbed and turned into a zombler

not the aggressive kind----------he just panhandles for brains, like, if you got any to spare

toss 'em in the guitar case, right

he's actually pretty good, man----------knows david zombowie's songbook like the back of his hand ('Zomby Stardust', 'Space Zombitty', 'Brainses'. 'Unlife on Mars?'). good biz, you know

Can't speak for anyone else, but at this point even a one-off mention is groanworthy, and making them a focus is an instant guarantee I won't bother.

Really not worth talking about. Anyone with a few bucks can afford a dollar shop costume.
