This year has seen the highest volume of public clown sightings since Halloween 2008, when seemingly everyone was dressed as the Joker from The Dark Knight. The makeup-wearing nightmare factories have been spotted in Wisconsin, South Carolina, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, and Arizona, where “Clown Lives Matter.” What’s to be done about this plague of clowns?
Bring in Batman, obviously.
A man dressed like the Caped Crusader is patrolling the streets of Whitehaven, according to BBC Cumbria, after hearing “that many children had been left traumatized by the clowns lurking around the town.”
It appears a superhero has swooped in, determined to help youngsters sleep easy tonight. Cumbria Superheroes, a costume company, has sent ‘Batman’ out and about on the town’s streets to fight off the evil clowns. The man behind it insists he is not a vigilante, but is hoping to give children some reassurance that they are safe. (Via)
