    The one comment on the linked story says it all (and is really hilarious!).

    Clowns, in general, creep me out.

    I think it was that stupid clown doll in the original Poltergeist movie that I watched as a kid.

    RIP Bozo

    sorry to hear about Bozo. here where i live we had nothing like that on tv. i only saw a clown in real life once-back when my mom and dad took us to the circus in a town about 45 miles from the house.

    ahh-might of seen one walking away the fair over the yrs., but nothing like the one at the circus.

    RIP Bozo.

    Sad that there was never a grudge match between Bozo and Clarabell... I bet Clarabell would have honked Bozo to death with his horn in 45 seconds flat.

    Never a fan of clowns since birth (OR that sick type "a Mime"), a trait that kept me as far away from all kinds of 'em as possible...
