The Great Clown Panic of 2016 continues to spread. Examples are ramifying.
From Louisiana, a Facebook post by a local reporter claimed clowns were on the way. Here's the post, followed by the content it refers to:
A central Pennsylvania radio station, WITF, ran a story on the clown frenzy, noting well that "clown sightings" seems to be a term of the season.
Great line from that:
INTERVIEWER: John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer in Chicago, was a professional clown.
CLOWN: He was not a very good professional clown. I've seen his clown face...
INTERVIEWER: ...he was a very good murderer.
Also in Pennsylvania, a murder allegedly involving someone wearing a clown mask.
It's an Infocult world. We just describe it.
