Clowns were smart to leave Chicago for last because we don’t care

Welcome to Chi-Town, leave your face paint and red nose at the door

Last week saw the rise of clown sightings all over the country, as well as in the UK, and everyone was creeped the fuck out.

But creepy clown sightings aren’t exactly new to Chicago.  Just last year, a couple captured this eery clown in a local cemetery.

Sure, that turned out to be a hoax.

So what about the Clown Scare of 2016?  Clowns have popped up in every major city across the country within the last few weeks.

But not so much in the Windy City… or maybe we just don’t care.

Violence in Chicago is no joke.  Anyone who watches the news knows that.

Apparently that includes clowns.


Maybe we just aren’t looking hard enough.

Or maybe we already have enough clowns in this city, even if they’re making millions of dollars.
