Today in Creepy: Sinister Clown Haunts English Village, Facebook

For several days the town of Northampton, England has been captivated and possibly a little horrified by a clown appearing along dark streets, sometimes dragging along a forlorn teddy bear as he haunts the village. He even has a Facebook page, where he delights in being spotted. So far, there have been four documented sightings.

The clown says, “If what i am doing does get too much for people, I will have to stop” on his page, since some people seem like they are getting freaked out by the clown. For example, some media outlets think he is “evil” or that he is “terrorizing” the town.

All the conflicting attention apparently caused the clown to suffer from what seems like some sort of existential crisis, as yesterday he was complaining about “Too much hate not enough love.” and felt compelled to say: “No, i don’t have a knife on me!, thats just stupid rumours spread by stupid people. I’m also ‘not’ on twitter as it confuses the heck out of me. However, i might go for a jog around that pond in Abington park later as i’m really unfit… See you around! Beep Beep!”
