Apparently, when I was a baby I had a “jack-in-the-box” incident. After receiving one as a gift, I came unglued and my Mom had to take it back. I’ve never liked them and I never bought one for either of my kids – even when my daughter begged me for one. They are creepy. You know what else is creepy? Clowns! I’m serious about this, I’ve never liked them. I’ve been teased about this, but I don’t care. As far as I’m concerned, they are pure evil. And believe me… watching Poltergeist as a teenager did nothing to help my feelings on the topic!
That said, I do have the ability to laugh about this matter. I recently watched an episode of Frasier where he treats a patient who suffers from the fear of clowns and I found the whole thing hilarious. This particular clip makes me giggle so I just had to share it.
