The Offical Scary Clown Thread [Merged]

Creepy clown with black balloons wandering Wisconsin

isconsin residents are calling police, asking about a disheveled clown walking through Green Bay with four black balloons.

But, there's not much police can do. The clown doesn't appear armed or dangerous ó just really creepy.

"This person is not breaking the law," said Captain Kevin Warych of the Green Bay Police Department. "He can walk in a clown costume anywhere he wants."

The clown, who is being referred to as Gags Ė The Green Bay Clown, was first spotted at 2 a.m. Aug. 1, according to a fan Facebook page that popped up the next day.

Commenter Shannon Mueller said if she met Gags, she would "curl into the fetal position and die of heart exploding from pure terror."

Photos of Gags show a figure with full face makeup Ė high eyebrows, hollow eyes and a black smile. The clown wears a soiled-looking jumpsuit with a ruffled collar.

Some believe Gags is part of a horror film, but others say they havenít seen a camera crew.

Warych said he's surprised that Gags has gone viral.

"At the end of the day, itís just a person walking around in clown costume."

And that, folks, more than constitutional principles or self-responsibility or what-have-you, is why I carry.

Yeah. "Oooh." "Ahhh." That's how it always starts. Then later there's running and screaming.

Re: Say Hello to Gags - The Green Bay Clown

I hate clowns - they freak me out. I don't know why.

It might be because of the dead clown I once found in a forest when I was a little kid.

But that's probably not it.

Re: Say Hello to Gags - The Green Bay Clown

The Phantom Clowns are back!

In many locations throughout the United States and even across the pond in England, there have for years been reports of mysterious phantom clowns that seem to appear without warning or reason to terrorize locals before simply disappearing without a trace when their mischief is done. Far from an isolated case, phantom clown reports are so widespread and numerous that they have indeed become a whole bizarre area of Fortean interest in and of themselves. No one knows where these clowns come from, why they appear, or who they are, but we do know one thing; most people would prefer they stay in the circus.

Perhaps one of the most mysterious and infamous incidents involving phantom clowns running amok occurred in 1981, when the city of Boston, Massachusetts, was held under siege by the bizarre sudden appearance of what appeared to be a cabal of individuals dressed as clowns harassing small children, a case which was well documented by cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his book Mysterious America. This horrific, unsettling series of phantom clown appearances started in May of 1981, when Boston police began to receive numerous reports that mysterious men brightly dressed up as clowns were riding around in a dark van, following or driving up to elementary school children and attempting to entice them to follow or go along with them. In some cases the clowns were said to use candy or toys to help lure the children, and in one particularly creepy account one of the clowns in question was said to be dressed as a clown from the waist up and completely nude from the waist down. At around the same time, mysterious clowns were also seen in the nearby city of Brookline, where they were said to drive about in an older model black van with ladders on the sides, a broken tail light, and missing hubcaps, and were most frequently seen in the vicinity of elementary schools. The reports and complaints filed concerning clowns harassing children became so persistent, and provoked so much profound unease in parents that Investigative Counselor Daniel O’Donnell of the Boston Public School District sent an urgent memo to all of the schools in the district saying:

It has been brought to the attention of the police dept. and the district office that adults dressed as clowns have been bothering children to and from school. Please advise all students that they must say away from strangers, especially ones dressed as clowns.
Before long, this flap of clown sightings had spread out to various other surrounding areas, including East Boston, Charlestown, Cambridge, Canton, Randolph, and other cities near Boston. The reports steadily gained momentum until sightings of creepy or “evil” clowns were coming in from all over New England and the Midwest, including as far away as Nebraska and Colorado. While most of these reports described a similar story of clowns driving around in a black van at night trying to entice or lure in children, a few of the reports deviated from this and indeed had a more ominous overtone. In one case, a clown in a bright yellow van and wearing a black shirt with a devil picture on the front, as well as black plants with candy canes on the sides, was said to have threatened two young girls with a knife in Kansas City on May 15, 1981. The incident was witnessed by the mother, who although she didn’t see the actual clown said the girls approached the van only to come away screaming in terror as the vehicle sped off. By noon of the very same day, the yellow van clown would go on to feature in over a dozen additional sightings of apparently the same individual and vehicle prowling around a total of six elementary schools, and these reports would pour in until around 5PM that evening, when they suddenly just stopped. Another report at around the same time from Kansas described a psychotic clown wielding a Japanese style katana sword and threatening children to get in his van. While the clowns were mostly reported near schools or where children congregated, there was at least one creepy report of a clown lurking about a Brooklyn cemetery. Joining these mystery clown reports was another bizarre account from June of 1981 describing three people dressed as Spider Man, a gorilla, and a clown, who tried to abduct a boy in Arlington Heights PA. There was also reportedly a person dressed as a rabbit who was allegedly going around harassing children as well, just to make the case even more surreal than it already is.

GREEN BAY, WIS.
An actor says photos of someone dressed up as a scary clown holding black balloons in Green Bay is part of a marketing ploy for a short horror film.

Someone has started a Facebook page for "Gags — The Green Bay Clown" that shows several photos of the clown it says were taken Tuesday morning. The clown is dressed in a dirty costume and is wearing white face paint or a mask. The clown also is holding four black balloons.

WBAY-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2b3MDuF ) local actor C.J. Guzan says he auditioned for a role in a short horror film about a clown in Green Bay and the photos are the first step in a viral marketing campaign for the movie. Guzan says he wasn't cast in the movie.

I just remind myself that clowns are just like the rest of us, they put their pants on one leg at a a time. Unless they are nude from the waist down.

I remember seeing a clown orgy on HBO's Real Sex or one of their similar programs. There actually was a clown who was naked from the waist down leaping around with his cock flopping around. It was even more horrific than you can possibly imagine.
