Yep, you guessed it. It’s a fear of clowns! But…do you really have it?
So do clowns make you laugh or make you scream? I’m somewhere between, let’s just say they make me uneasy. Might have something to do with that Stephen King book “It”. Yikes.
Some people do have an irrational fear of clowns, though. According to this story, it’s called ‘Coulrophobia’. It can make you cry or scream, sweat, barf, or get mad whenever one of these funny looking fella’s pop up. Experts say one of the reasons you might have the dreaded Coulrophobia is that clowns are in disguise and are faking emotions.
Me? I think the red nose that makes weird noise has something to do with it.
Do you suffer from ‘Coulrophobia’?
