“It’s about time the @government faction stepped in to assist the public in ridding society of this mental and emotional plague. The Red-Nose Abolishment Act is a good start.”
Clowns used to be a symbol of happiness and joy. Children would cheer when these colorful face-painted individuals flopped about in huge shoes, honking horns and making animals out of balloons. Birthday parties and carnivals would be bursting with children, waiting for their chance to pull on a tie, get squirted by the plastic flower, or receive a rubber sword to play with. But that was then. This is now. The public has turned on this profession with a venom unequalled in recent years, and all with good reason.
Laughs to ScreamsI don’t know where this started—but a wave of perversion and twisted perspective leaked into society. I’m not talking about the actual crimes here—because those are heinous in their own right. I’m taking about the wave of creative dementia that started with Stephen Wing’s monstrous movie ’THAT’. Some will argue with me, but if you look back to the opening month of that movie—some of the most twisted crimes spurred through Clockworks City. Let me share some statistics with you. Since the opening of ‘THAT’, we have had:
- 62% of all bank robbers started wearing clown masks
- Within six months, 11,741 ‘mime’ muggings were reported to Centurions
- Vandalism—specifically clown graffiti—rose by 288%
- Clown-centered psychotherapy for children went up by 1200%
