No thank you, please!!!

It's October. American Horror Story is back. Stuff is supposed to be spooky. Trust me, I get it. But you know what I absolutely don't f*ck with? Clowns. Y'all can keep that. 

Unfortunately, clowns are having a serious popular culture moment and not in a "children's birthday party" kind of way.

A spate of clown related sightings, including one where a clown was said to be "luring children into the woods", has people sufficiently spooked in time for Halloween.

While a bunch of the clown sightings are probably fake as hell, let's take a look at this sighting (which is also probably fake but WHAT IF IT'S NOT) and try not to have nightmares tonight. 

The man who took the video, Chase Prior, has now made the original Facebook post private, but here's what he had to say about the experience.

Well, this morning I had a rather traumatizing experience. I woke up early to go running with Patrick Williams and we parked by the YMCA to hit the bike path leading toward 21st Street and eventually out toward Evans. Ironically, my friend Zane and I had just been discussing supposed sightings of clowns around the 21st Street / 16 intersection. We had no idea this would happen when we started our run. The video is NSFW due to my language, which I apologize for but I was more than a little shook up. Keep an eye out of this guy or someone like him around the area because this was absolutely terrifying, joke or not. We didn’t stick around to find out.”

Right. No more clowns, please. THANKS!
