In late August, police in South Carolina received reports that clowns were trying to lure children into the woods. Since then, creepy clowns have been spotted in more than two dozen states. Last week, police arrested a man in Pennsylvania after witnesses say he was jumping in front of cars dressed in a clown mask. Law enforcement in California is deeply irritated by the clown panic, but are urging people to keep calm, saying most of these creepy clowns are doing it as a prank. The prank is not so funny for people with a clown phobia, though, and also not funny to legit clowns, people who work for circuses and perform at birthday parties.
