No Clowning Around

If you're scared of clowns, you may want to stop reading. Last week at lunch, a co-worker shared the freakiest story I've heard in my life.

So this happened to his family's friends that live in Milwaukee. One night, their daughter was babysitting for a couple with a little girl. As many kids do, this girl had an imaginary friend which the couple told the babysitter about prior to leaving. At one point during the night, the babysitter called the couple and asked for permission to cover up the life-size clown in their basement because she had a fear of clowns. Imagine her magnified fear when she discovered the couple didn't own a life-size clown. The parents instructed her to get their daughter and get out of the house immediately.

It turned out there was a psych ward nearby and the clown was an escaped mental patient that had been living in their basement for a week. He also was the "imaginary friend" the young girl spoke of and he had been talking to her all week long. She even would bring him cookies.
