I think this is an urban Myth among kids. I say this because when I was going to Delmar elementary back in the early 80's there was a rumor going around that a clown was trying to abduct kids in the woods behind the school. This happened a couple of years. if my memory serves it was around the 3rd and 5th grade. Kids swore that they saw the clown. One year it was a guy dressed a Ronald McDonald.

Does anyone else remember this ? In the end it was all a hoax brought on by the kids enjoying a good creepy tale to share.

There are lots of reports of clowns in at least 5 states.
I read it recently.
It is some kind of organized thing.

Could be an urban legend. I read quite a few online newspapers from various parts of the country and this is supposedly happening somewhere else too. I can't remember where I read it but I did and it was within the past 2 weeks. Still it's better to be cautious. I too don't like clowns at all.

The only scary clown I've seen lately wears Dr. Evil clothes and has to be carried into a van after a 20 minute public appearance and the 9/11 memorial.

John Wayne Gacy was a real killer clown.

It's urban hysteria, is all it is.

Nevertheless, time to declare open season on clowns in the wild. No tag needed, no bag limit.
