WHAT'S UP WITH CLOWNS?
Has anyone ever noticed all the creepy subconscious and overt implications and symbolism of the "clowns"?
A quick 2014 survey revealed that out of 7500 people, 36% find clowns to be mildly disturbing. A Univeristy of Sheffield study reported that 250 children between the ages of four and sixteen were all mildly to deeply disturbed by clowns and even by mere paintings of clowns. a first word that leaps to mind is "trickster", and more sinically, "diabolical.
"Coulrophobia" is the fear of clowns and this emergent fear needs no horrific childhood or adult event nor any scarey movie to induce a deep intuitional sense of foreboding in regards to the iconic theatric "clown".
