Terrifying clown stalks the streets of Northampton, England

Do you have coulrophobia, a fear of clowns? Then you probably should cancel your trip to Northampton, England, because an unknown clown is showing up random places, walking the street, and generally freaking everyone completely out.

Terrifying clown stalks the streets of Northampton, England

According to his completely creepy Facebook page, he isn't trying to terrorize people, he just wants to be spotted... as if standing around the city, silently, dressed like Pennywise from IT isn't plenty scary on its own. It's also worth noting that all the pictures that people have managed to take of him — he's tagged as #northamptonclown on Twitter — look like the last known photo of John Wayne Gacy at his day job.

Suffice it to say I wouldn't like to meet him in a dark alley. Or an extremely well-lit alley. Or anywhere, frankly. To tell you the truth, I'm kind of freaked out that we're both currently on the same planet.
