Cringe. Americans can't be funny anymore and shouldn't be spreading trends like this.

So a trend, like hipsterism, sweeps across the US and into the UK, and the social conformist d1ckheads who subscribe to it because in their minds they think it's cool, make news headlines?

I just let out a big, loud, fart and consider that eminently more important.

Is this a joke story or have I missed something? Some people are dressing up as clowns and other people are scared? WTF?

Three men disguised as clowns enter a school without permission and terrorise pupils.
The Gardai say it has nothing to do with them and is a 'civil matter'.

It all started on August 21st, when a child in South Carolina told his mom that he saw a clown lingering along the wooded area near their home.

No one found any physical evidence of a clown, though, and adults believed the panic was nothing more than their imaginations. But a few days later, 17-year-old Caden Parmalee posted a now-viral video of a clown lingering in the woods near his Florida home – and all of a sudden there were sightings up and down the East Coast. Since the initial stories, there have been dozens of reports of creepy clowns.

In his 1981 book Mysterious America, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman coined the phrase "Phantom Clown Theory," which refers to the way a few sightings of clowns 'luring' children into vans, cars and forests can turn into mass hysteria – even though no clowns are ever actually caught.
