Chicken-Fried News: Creepy clowns 

CFN_CLOWN-1.jpg

Nothing is scarier than a clown.

Sure, in preschool, clowns were funny, made balloon animals and performed magic tricks. Eventually, there comes a time in life when clowns are anything but cute or friendly.

With those florid noses, unrelenting grins and conspicuous hairstyles, they can appear untrustworthy and possibly sinister. Maybe reading Stephen King’s It more than once was a bad idea.

At Chicken-Fried News, we can only imagine that people in south Oklahoma City were seeing their worst nightmares with recent sightings and social media-based threats.

Earlier this month, reports emerged of clown sightings — or at least people in clown clothing — near SW 59th Street and Western Avenue and U.S. Grant High School, located on S. Pennsylvania Avenue, KOCO.com reported.

The TV station located a Facebook page that specifically threatened violence in south OKC during Halloween time.

South OKC residents can take comfort in KOCO.com’s report that the page was removed and Oklahoma City police say there are no credible reports of creepy, congregating clowns menacing public safety.

Unless you count this year’s elections.
