Coulrophobia

Coulrophobia

From Wikipedia:

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.[1]

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 ….
