We have reached the stage of the Great Clown Panic when real clowns have started to worry about profiling. In Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the Cumberland Times-News reports, "members of the Classic Clowns Club have been alarmed by news reports in which police have asked anyone who sees a clown to call 911. The troupe members often travel in costume, and worry that, if someone notices a van full of clowns and calls the police, they could end up in legal trouble."This is absurd, and it seems to be a meme. Really.
Our culture is becoming more and more bizarre daily. This isn't the 21st Century I imagined, and I don't have my flying car yet.
