Freaky Friday - Evil Clown Phobia, anyone?

I'll put these behind a cut for our more sensitive viewers.   If you didn't have a clown phobia already, you will now. D:

If you love clowns, enjoy! :D

Clowns in the Underground! 1936/37


They're only going to get worse...

Post's Sugar Krinkles, 1950s


Yep, it gets worse than that...

Stop now.

Ten High Whiskey, 1940


The top panel of the last ad is really the scariest. And I don't even have a clown phobia.
You know what it looks like? The super-creepy artwork in the "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" books.

I guess clown ads are where that guy got his start.
