Are you afraid of clowns? I find this an unusual fear, but then again I am freighted by grasshoppers. Phobias are funny things, but I know where mine comes from. I think clowns are funny looking and perhaps a little too cheerful. I was always perplexed as a child by their colorful wardrobe, painted on smiles and tears. Often a paradox. I mostly saw clowns at the local rodeo as I grew up in the country and that was all there was for entertainment. I never saw a circus, but once a year we watched the bucking broncos, bulls and the clowns. It was a dangerous job for these guys to be out there taunting the animals to distract them from a fallen cowboy. I now find rodeo’s cruel and would never attend, but I do remember the funny characters that entertained us so well. 🙂
