Clowns, Yikes! Climate Change, Meh.

Say what you will about America’s polarized society but at least we’re united by our fear of clowns.
 
In fact Americans fear clowns more than climate change, The Independent reports.  
 
Chapman University poll found that 42% of Americans fear clowns but only 32% were afraid of the consequences of a warming planet. (Say what you will about Americans but we’re united in misplaced priorities!)
 
The poll follows the "killer clown craze" in the US and Europe. However my personal clown-fear reaches back much further, to my childhood when I witnessed a rodeo clown shrieking for help for a bull rider who had been gored. Now, that’s scary.
