Are you sure there was no panic? Better check the local news sites first.

Well, the party did get a little rowdy when a bunch of drunk people played musical chairs and the last two players started fighting over the last chair, but there were no clown panics that I was aware of.

A clown tries a break-in

Alaska clown

I believe Hawaii is now the only state without clowns.

Poor Ronald should enjoy his time off. Perhaps he could find it restful here.

When T.S. Eliot wrote in The Hollow Man "'This is the way the world ends: Not with a bang but a whimper," who knew he was referring to this?

Like they'd clown panic in front of you. I bet after you left they were all like "Did you see davidm in that clown costume? I'm so clown panicking right now." "I know, right? I'm clown panicking like a motherfuck over here."

Holy guacamole! According to the sign, rooms there are $3950 per night!!! No wonder clowns are shaking down kiddos for pocket change! At least it's pet friendly so these guys won't be left out on their own.

The clowns have gone international, as several posts above indicate. You need to start tracking them by country, too.

Clown porn has been around forever. One of the first porn mags I ever saw had a shoot of a guy with (IIRC) two women in clown makeup. More Harley Quinn than Bozo. This would have been in the 80s. A Penthouse, I think. I still occasionally go for a little clown porn.

There's got to be a good joke response. Why can't I think of it?

Is it "Fuck me silly", or "Fuck me, silly"?
Or come to think of it, "Fuck, me silly"?

Things to keep in mind when viewing clown porn:

* You know it's going to be a gang bang when the tiny car pulls up to the house.

* That's not seltzer water!

* Even the sad clowns get a happy ending.

* "Face paint" might not mean what you think.

More seriously, once in a great while I kind of have a thing for women in clown type makeup. Not the whole getup with the big shoes and wig and everything. It's really just the face paint. I guess it's more of a mask fetish. I guess I wouldn't really say it's a full blown fetish. Just an occasional diversion.

And now I have officially posted more about my sexual interests in the past couple of days than I have in the previous 9 years I've been on the SDMB.

Oh, geez, when I was growing up, we lived about two blocks from a guy who did an afternoon children's cartoon/variety show, as the clown "Rusty Nails". Now, if that is not a clown porn name, what is?

Well, with the economy heating up and unemployment rates dropping, the next thing will be men in business suits standing in parks trying to lure workers with money.

Then there's only one way to deal with the problem.

Little did we know what was coming when those first clowns made their appearance in South Carolina now nearly two months ago. Total world domination.

Googling Krusty the Clown porn brings about 211,000 results. NO WAY I am clicking on any of them.

Just a few short days until this is all supposedly all over.

I think it is quite understandable to be concerned about violence as the long awaited day approaches. Both sides seem more interested in their extreme points of view. But on just a few days people are going to have to make a choice (though it is hard to see how anyone could be undecided at this point). Let's just hope people making their costume selection can be safe and afterwards good clowns and good non-clowns can put aside their differences for the benefit of our country as a whole.

There are people quoted in that article stating that they'll be carrying guns on Halloween and threatening to shoot clowns. That kind of paranoia is probably more dangerous than any idiot in a clown costume.
