Origin[edit | edit source]

The 2016 clown sightings were reports of people disguised as an evil clown in incongruous settings, included but not limited to schools and forests beginning in August. The first report of the sightings came from a police report where a nine year old boy informed police (through his mother) that two men dressed as clowns tried to lure him into the woods. By October sightings and attacks had been reported in all U.S. states and most of the territories and provinces of Canada. Those who acted in the panic that swept across the nation did minor things such as just standing in places to freak others out, jumping in and out of hiding spots or even chasing bystanders. Then there were major issues such as physically attacking, robbing or in rare cases, murdering people.

Joshua Kippers (17) was arrested for scaring children at a public school in Laurel, Montana due to standing in the outfield in the playground next door for nearly an entire day in a clown costume and not reacting to any outside stimulation. This included people shouting at him, as well as the irrigation system coming on. Upon his arrest the clown nose was removed and Kippers was just as confused and scared as anyone else.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Wearing the nose freezes the wearer in place until another person removes the nose.
