39 Freaky Circus Finds

From Creepy Clown Couture to Menacing Mimes

— March 2, 2010 — Art & Design
Disclaimer: If you are afraid of clowns in any way, do not open this cluster. Uh oh, too late! There are many people who as kids had an intense fear of clowns or anything from a carnival for that matter. Though I never experienced that fear as a child, I think I am beginning to develop one now after putting together this collection of freaky circus finds.

I realize now clowns are evil and if they say otherwise, they are simply trying to deceive you. Not Ronald McDonald though -- he is simply a delight.

Just do yourself a favor and don't make these freaky circus finds the last thing you read before you go to bed.
