A real-life version of Stephen King's terrifying killer clown Pennywise has been leaving red balloons all around Skelmorlie.
It seems that we can't go one Halloween season without some sort of creepy clown story cropping up and this year is no exception.

According to reports, a man dressed as Pennywise from Stephen King's horror masterpiece 'It' has been filming himself wandering around the streets of Skelmorlie in north Ayrshire, Scotland.

"Well, well, well, I've made the news again," he said in his most recent video.

"Should I smile for the cameras with my 'hideous' grin?'"

"The police have been informed, do you think that I care? They'd have to catch me first anyway - and yes, that's a dare. They called me 'killer clown'. Why don't you leave the jokes to me."
"The only thing that's dying is your credibility."

"If you come to visit then you'll float too. This clown doesn't want fame, glory or gold. He just wants to play in this so-called 'sleepy town'. So, come and join in and learn to fear the Skelmorlie clown."

His Facebook page, under the name 'Cole Deimos', can be found - here.

While the clown hasn't technically committed any crimes, some local parents are concerned that he could be dangerous and are planning to keep their children in on Halloween.

"Someone needs to have a word with him before the police get involved or he really terrifies someone," said one local. "He could give someone a heart attack."

So it's a crime to dress wrong now? Or to look scary? Good grief people really are such a panicky species. When faced with a gray i literally fainted and we actually had to end the meeting after the second time i nearly went so myaelf included, we literally get terrified at the sight of new creatures and it's weak. Why is the sight of something unidentifiable so blood curdlingly terrifying to us? I do wish i hadnt been so scared it was nice to me but i couldnt even conversate without technology to mask its appearance after that. No wonder they cant talk to most of us.

Sounds interesting, you should start a thread about this, if you can handle the mocking as I've had to do on occasion.

you enjoy the mocking & confrontation, that's why you start these threads you're referring to

Yeah I love it, that's why I have only put up a tiny % of my experiences. I couldn't be bothered wasting my time.

i take it you would like to discuss experiences with other believers?
Comment icon #11 Posted by openozy 9 months ago
No. If believing in what you experience makes you a believer, then I am one, same as most people.
