Reuters says kids don’t much like clowns according to a University of Sheffield study reported on in Nursing Standard magazine. Good thing children were consulted about hospital décor before some do-gooder artist painted up the walls. How frightening to be in the hospital surrounded by scary clowns!
Coulrophobia is what you call fear of clowns and it’s real. Noted sufferers include Johnny Depp, my husband and Bart Simpson who said, “Can’t sleep, clown will eat me.”
I suppose someone is going to have to break this news to the folks at McDonald's and Ronald McDonald himself.
