If you have coulrophobia, or even an aversion to clowns, you may not want to read this. Because there are a lot of clowns here and they're all doing something strange in the town of Wasco, California: They're wandering around late at night, clown-style.
American Horror Story may be a disturbing collection of absurd metaphorical stabs at societal issues, but one thing it will always have going for it is star power. And now you can see Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, and Jessica Lange go full freak in this latest trailer. This will be nuts.
We knew some part of the new carnival-themed American Horror Story: Freak Show would have scary clowns. And now our fears are confirmed. A new batch of AHS promos are out and it's almost all scary clowns. There's nothing worse than a clown.
Climb into a sinkhole of bureaucracy in Pennsylvania (no, really, it's a cave), explore San Francisco's most storied structure (not the Golden Gate bridge), and jet off to to Myanmar (or is it Burma?). Plus, SCARY CLOWNS! In this week's Urban Reads.
Do you have coulrophobia, a fear of clowns? Then you probably should cancel your trip to Northampton, England, because an unknown clown is showing up random places, walking the street, and generally freaking everyone completely out.
Look at this happy imbecile: Chibuihem Amalaha, a Nigerian grad student whose University of Lagos-sanctioned "investigation" says that "physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and the grace of God" prove that gay marriage is wrong. His paper's laughable/pathetic logic will give you an aneurism.
What caused this gentleman to pull down his jeans and show his butt to the street while standing in the doorway of local clown shop The Fecund Clown? The police, obviously! They were just driving through this run-down part of town, as was the robotic photographer of this haunting image of Americana.
I don't know who thought this was a good idea, but they were sort of right, in an extremely dangerous way. These clowns decided that maybe they should light their bonfire with a home-made bazooka that fires fireworks, and thankfully they caught it on camera for the rest of us. Don't try this at home, folks. Unless…
This honor goes to Sugar Rice Krinkles, which inflicted incalculable psychic damage upon children of the 1950s with this commercial featuring a goggle-eyed clown proselytizing about carbohydrates. As the YouTube uploader notes, "Ever wondered what would happen if John Wayne Gacy made a cereal ad?"
We don't know how to feel about this news. Tim Curry's Pennywise in the 1990 It miniseries was pure and simple nightmare fuel. But it's a damn shame Pennywise and his penchant for pulling children's arms off through a sewer drain haven't been immortalized on the big screen. Now Warner Bros. is looking to give the evil…
And now, from the darkest corner of pediatric medicine comes a recent study that somehow bridges the gap between costumed buffoonery and tainted canned goods.
Yes. According to CNN, the iPad 2 will have a camera, perhaps two cameras. It will also have more operating system. In fact, it will have "dueling operating systems so you can do more." It will have two of everything. It's going to be awesome. I'm so getting this thing.
While we don't recommend running into your backyard and trying to recreate silly circus routines on your own, it's still fascinating to know the general methods behind the tricks. So here are the basic "secrets" behind some popular circus acts.
Remember that whole balloon boy hoax, wherein a terrible man exploited his family to achieve fleeting notoriety through national panic before being fined and jailed? I try not too every day. But Richard Heene is back, scummier than ever.
This is Brozo the Creepy Clown, a television host on the Spanish language Televisa network. Apparently he gets very upset when people impersonate his co-host Marissa Rivera on Twitter. So upset in fact, that he threatens to come after them.
This is the work of Mariano Villalba, a young Argentinian artist whose influences include Edgar Allen Poe, Jan Saudek and Scarface! His dark surreal world is populated with fallen angels, evil clowns (are there any other kinds?) and mysterious women.
Warner Brothers is still set on bringing Stephen King's clown monster to life. Screenwriter Dave Kajganich (The Invasion) has the difficult job of adapting the book into a 120-page screenplay. And his latest update makes us all kinds of nervous.
Clowns are scary to some, but apparently they're invisible to most cellphone users. According to a study involving a unicycle, a clown, and 150 college students, cellphone users were half as likely as others to notice a red-nosed, unicycle rider.
Holy Batman. This is the scariest piece of pseudo-art ever. Please don't zoom if you want to sleep tonight. Or tomorrow. Or next week. Heck, you will be lucky if you can sleep before Halloween.
