There have recently been a flurry of news reports about a cluster of creepy clown sightings in Greenville County, South Carolina. 

If that sentence alone isn't enough to make you feel weird inside, then we'd like to add that these reports include sentences like, "One resident said she saw a clown with a blinking nose standing beside a dumpster at 2:30 a.m. Other children came forward claiming clowns attempted to lure them into the woods with money and that the clowns 'live in a house by a pond deep in the woods.'"
