I got to thinking after another excellent episode of Supernatural, about how afraid of clowns I am. There are some good reasons for it, the main one being that their faces lack any sort of expression as it is painted on. In pop-culture, they're frequently used as innocent tools of evil.
But that makes me wonder just how many people here are truly afraid of clowns. I don't mean unsettled. I mean scratch-your-eyes-out kinda afraid.
