Have you ever wondered how it is that clowns became associated with all that is horrible and terrifying in the world? I wonder this from time to time for about five minutes before it becomes too creepy.
While clowns used to be restricted to the circus and occasionally TV, they seem to be becoming a more frequent sight in various cities around the world. The latest sighting? Green Bay, Wisconsin…
Here is the nightmare in question spotted walking the streets of Green Bay earlier this week. One local has dubbed him (or her?) Gags the clown.
This brave local resident had the fortitude to take a few pictures of the clown walking mysteriously into the night with handful of black balloons. They even created a Facebook page where locals can share their encounters with Gags.
While there is no clear origin of Gags, some speculate that he might be part of a horror movie that's shooting in town.
Of course, Gags could simply be a prank orchestrated by a local radio station or store to drum up business.
Whether Gags is real or fake, I know that I'm glad he's stalking the streets of a town other than mine.

Personally, I would put my money on Gags being a prank of some kind. At any rate, he's a terrifying presence that I hope is soon brought to justice.
