I’m beyond stunned that this is still a thing.  It’s like the boogeyman that never goes away.  My kids still bring up the clowns, so I can’t even imagine the terror this woman’s children must feel.

T-man and Bear have already asked if I think people will wear clown masks on Halloween. What can I say except that there are probably people stupid enough to think it’s funny?  At least they’re prepared for the possibility, which is more than I can say for whatever idiot decides to show up in my neighborhood to scare the crap out of our kids.

Mama bear is on the prowl.

“Oh my ever-loving-cookie-dough!  What is with the clown pranking everywhere?  I know that kids all over the place from all different backgrounds are scared.  I get it that it’s not just kids with past trauma who are being affected by this.  I suppose we don’t have the market cornered on kids with lots of anxiety.  But, Come ON!!!!”
