[eBook] Bad ClownsAuthor Benjamin Radford – Mariahilff.de

A well researched book on the history, context, and claims of clowns from ancient times to the modern world. Well researched and written The scholarly approach is anything but dry in Ben s hands He tells a good story with wit and subtle humor I have had a lifelong distaste for clowns ever since a circus clown, looking for a magic trick volunteer, told me to sit down because he preferred the pretty blonde girl next to me I was 6 years old with red hair and freckles This book confirms every bad thought I ve had about bad clowns and I no longer feel guilty about disliking them Now I can enjoy disliking them and quit being freaked out Thanks, Ben. Great historical view of the bad clown A lettle light on today s clown sightings Would have been better if time was spent on today Bought this as a gift. Hard to read It just didn t hold my interest The author has lots of information but kind of rambles and loses the reader. Bad clowns those malicious misfits of the midway who terrorize, haunt, and threaten us have long been a cultural icon This book describes the history of bad clowns, why clowns go bad, and why many people fear them Going beyond familiar clowns such as the Joker, Krusty, John Wayne Gacy, and Stephen King s Pennywise, it also features bizarre, lesser known stories of weird clown antics including Bozo obscenity, Ronald McDonald haters, killer clowns, phantom clown abductors, evil clown panics, sex clowns, carnival clowns, troll clowns, and much Bad Clowns blends humor, investigation, and scholarship to reveal what is behind the clown s dark smile
