Let's not feel left out.

Maybe it's just me but a horror mask with a red nose and a bit of white paint doesn't make it a clown.

Indeed, but I find clowns scary as well!

Re: Let's not feel left out.

On the wider subject i think we have a sanitised and dumbed down version of public performance today. Our ancestors had what seems to us a cruder sense of humour and dealt with issues taboo to us in public performance anyway. Think of Punch and Judy or the Padstow "Obby Oss". The painted clown in the Circus wouldn't have seemed strange to our ancestors just a mirror on social mores
