    Anyone notice that there seems to be an increasing prevalence of the fear of clowns? I don't remember this when I was young,seems to have expanded rapidly since the 90's..now you hear about it all the time, and pretty much everyone professes fear or dread of clowns.. So how about it,you scared or not?

    I'm not scared of clowns. They merely annoy me.

    I hate them, and have as long as I can remember. I didn't even like going to McDonalds when they had Ronald there, even with kites and treats as a sweetener. That was big, because we almost never ate fast food.

    skimom2--How could I forget Ronald McDonald? At our local McDonald's there used to be a plastic statue thing next to the drive-through. Good thing they got rid of it.
    I mean...no.

    I always thought they were silly. Not funny, not scary. Just, "Hey, I look and sound funny, so laugh at me!!!" Unimpressed.

    My kids were "meh" about them. Grandma hired a clown for one party, and in side conversations with the adults, she (the clown) was bemoaning the bad rap that clowns were getting. She considered herself being in a time-honored profession that was getting polluted an ddefamed. I felt sorta bad for her, but the feeling was tempered by what I considered to be a pretty silly gig (see the preceding short paragraph).

    Agreed on the annoyance comments. Clowns are just too obnoxious and over the top for me.

    That was going to be my exact answer even before I read any of the responses. They are damn irritating and not funny!

    As I suspected, the majority, at least on 24 hrs,aren't really frightened.. I think for lots of folks it is just a fad,agreeing "oh my God clowns scare me too!"
    Results are non scientific, but respondents are recognised as horror experts..

    I voted "just Tim Curry" because of It. As a rule I like clowns. Even took my daughter to see some at an early circus event. She is cool with them too!

    But I think there are more "scary clowns" in media than there used to be.
