I’ve never been a big fan of clowns. I don’t exactly find them terrifying like some people do, I just never really found them all that amusing or funny. Run of the mill local clowns at the country fair were no hilarious Buster Keatons in my book. They bored and annoyed me. When I was a kid what I didn’t like were the amusement park-employees dressed in character animal costumes who always wanted to hug me or put their arm around me. I was definitely terrified of those furry freaks No thank you very much. Get away from me you sweaty weirdo dressed as a happy hedgehog. Don’t touch me.
If you do suffer from some type of clownphobia, these portraits are not for you. Sadly, I’m not 100% sure of the provenance of these portraits. They don’t look like mugshots or else they’d be black and white. Were these taken at a clown convention? Maybe these are yearbook photos from some sort of clown school?
I’m just going to assume they were taken to scare the snot out of children and adults alike. I think it might be safe to assume that some of these guys spent time in prison either before or after these photos were taken.
Don’t trust clowns. I’m just sayin’.
