2011 Marks the 15 Year Anniversary of ihateclowns.com

Can you believe that?

The No Clown Zone (originally located at members.aol.com/ihateclown and now proudly located at ihateclowns.com)  has been online for 15 YEARS in 2011! 15 years!

That’s older than Facebook and Twitter combined!

What started out as a little site I put together to share my dislike of clowns has turned into a worldwide community of people who have realized they are not alone in their fear or hatred of the grease-painted ones.

This calls for a celebration of some sort :)

So let me ask you, fellow clown hater. What do you suggest we do to celebrate this momentous occasion?

Please post your fun and creative suggestions here or on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ihateclowns

PS. If you haven’t seen them yet, we have a few cool new anti-clown items in our store including this cool keychain, a fashionable t-shirt, and one for the typography lovers in the house :)

Fizbo on ABC’s Modern Family

This is hands down one of the funniest shows on TV. Strike that. Funniest show currently on TV.

This episode just confirms their awesomeness. Big thanks to ABC for allowing it to be viewed on HULU

Here’s a few choice quotes from the show:

Cameron: Hey Phil, are you getting a clown for today?
Phil: Ah, no, Lukes not much of a clown fan
Cameron: Really?
Phil: Yeah, he never liked ‘em
Cameron: Has he ever seen a good one?
Phil: Has, has anyone? Really?

Later on in the show after Cameron decides on a surprise Fizbo appearance at Luke’s birthday party.

Cameron (as Fizbo): is there a problem here?
Trucky McTestosterone Guy at Gas Station: What the hell are you?
Fizbo: I’m the ass kicking clown that will twist you like a ballon animal. I will beat your head against this bumper until the airbags deploy. So apologize to my boyfriend RIGHT NOW!
Trucky McTestosterone: Apologize? Boyfriend?
Fizbo: APOLOGIZE!
Trucky McTestosterone: OK! I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Filed under: for those clown haters that actually like to be scared

Killer Klowns From Outer Space (link to movie info) was one of the original movies that took on “clowns” as a scary beings.  Although the movie contained alien clowns, people who hate clowns often look back on the movie with a sort of fondness because of how “over the top” it went.

If that describes you or someone you know, be sure to check out the officially licensed t-shirt from the movie that has been added to the ihateclowns store.

clowns are universally disliked by children

In a recent University of Sheffield study they found that over 250 children with ages ranging from 4 to 16 disliked clowns.

What percentage of the kids in the study disliked clowns? 100%! All the kids surveyed did not like the clowns.

Some interesting quotes from the article:

We found that clowns are universally disliked by children. Some found them quite frightening and unknowable. –Dr. Penny Curtis, Senior Researcher

Very few children like clowns. They are unfamiliar and come from a different era. They don’t look funny, they just look odd. –Patricia Doorbar, Child Pyschologist

Even infants know that clowns are creepy :)
