One said something like "afraid of clowns". I immediatly thought of my brother, who is deathly afraid of both clowns and sea creatures but they didn't have a button for that. Speaking of evil clowns... did anyone else happen to catch a show on the National Geographic channel last night? The show is called "Phobia" and the whole half hour was devoted to Coulrophobia. Yup, the fear of clowns actually has an official "phobia" name. I feel better having watched it... because I don't like clowns, and I'd cross a busy street to avoid one - but the woman they featured on this show was TERRIFIED of them. She couldn't look at pictures of clowns, hold clown dolls, or anything. They put her in a room with one and she nearly crapped her pants. So again, I complain about clowns. They say things like "I don't know why people would be afraid - we only want to make people laugh" and to that I say BULL PUCKY!
