No shiat? I'm so shocked. Let me show you how shocked I am.

Staten Island: Why is a Creepy Clown Terrorising the New York Suburb?

Ric Romero: People on Staten Island are a bunch of godsdamned pussies.

People are always making fun of us clowns, but I get paid $50/hour to scare the sh*t out of your kids.

The makeup and wigs aren't cheap, though. So it's pretty much just my enjoyment of scaring the hell out of impressionable young kids that keeps me doing it after all these years.

/love what you do, etc.etc...

"To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad."

So, it's just a normal clown, then?

Not even an original publicity stunt at that. As pointed out in the article (and I think it showed up here on Fark last year?) they really just copied the film student from the UK who did the same thing basically.

I wonder how Staten Islanders feel about it being referred to as a suburb of New York.

This is the first I've heard about the "S.I. Clown but I can tell you I immediately knew the video was bogus. For one thing, the resolution was ridiculously low by any standard; another thing is that the guy came off as an actor---and he sounded very rehearsed.

This would be a good plot-line for a movie:

- P.R. firm arranges for a clown to haunt the streets as a tie-in for a new horror flick
- clown goes too "method-acting" in role and starts murdering people
- P.R. firm tries to stop killer-clown without drawing attention to their own involvement in the fiasco

It's the goddamn Northampton clown from England... they're the same damn pictures, how has no one noticed this....

Is it a proper publicity stunt without the requisite follow-up?

No, the Northhampton guy had a different costume.

My childhood died a little more today after looking at the stories on the sidebar.  He used to be such a kind and lovable pooch.

PR stunt or no PR stunt, you show me a clown and I'll show you justifiable homicide.

The story was about some guy named Max Clifford.  But after I saw it in the side bar I couldn't help photoshopping in a much better picture.  Funny thing, Clifford is holding a subpoena from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in that pic.

Staten Island: the Crimea of New York City.

I expect Chris Christie to annex it any day now.
