Coulrophobia is an abnormal or exaggerated fear of clowns. It is not uncommon among children, but is also sometimes found in teenagers and adults as well. Sufferers sometimes acquire a fear of clowns after having a bad experience with one personally, or seeing a sinister portrayal of one in the media. Not all sufferers of the phobia experience the same degree of fear.
This entry is inspired by this photo at Shorpy. Fortunately my coulrophobia isn’t extreme. Clowns weird me out to a minimal degree. Except the Shorpy clowns. Those guys seriously put on the weird. Can’t sleep … clowns will eat me ….
