  1. A bowtie-wearing CLOWN once followed me away from City Hall and scared me something awful when he started singing!!!

  2. Thy only KC clown that scares me is the mayor. When he puts that dummy Forte on his lap and pulls those mouth strings that is really creepy.

  3. As a child in KC in the 80s, i remember there was an urban legend among kids about the killer clown and claims that he drove an ice cream truck and kidnapped children.

  4. Maybe we could have a "killer clown" candlelight vigil.

  5. Maybe we could make some sort of deal......

  6. Do killer clowns do drive by shootings in their little cars? Blow their horns when they hit something?
