Anyone who knows me, even a little, knows that I have been on an anti-clown crusade for years.

It's not that I'm afraid of clowns; rather I am highly suspicious of their motives. No one would wear all that makeup unless they had something to hide. There is something shady going on -- I'm sure of it -- and we need to eliminate clowndom before it's too late.

Anyway...I digress a bit from my intended purpose. On the way into work this morning, I heard a radio report confirming a hypothesis of my clown conspiracy theory - that kids (who often have clowns inflicted upon them) don't like them one bit either.

More than 250 hospitalized children were surveyed, and not one of the children - not one!- liked clowns.

Surely this is a sign, Ladies and Gentlemen -- the time for action has come! We must unite to remove clowns from our midst. May I kindly suggest sending them all off to a remote island...perhaps wherever it was that lepers were sent in biblical times. There the clowns could spritz each other with seltzer water to their hearts' delight.

By the way, I tried to upload a typically creepy clown photo here, but it just would not upload. Another sign...)

I'm with you on this, big time. I've never liked clowns, and the two trips I've made to a circus have been squirm-inducing events whenever the clowns hit the stage. Yeesh.

Russians (like the French) are into that whole "pathos of the clown" thing and I encountered more clowns that I ever wanted to when I lived in Moscow. (((shudder)))
