I have posted before on the appalling affliction of coulrophobia - fear of clowns. I suffer somewhat myself, as do, I find, many others. I have never, however, gone so far as to advocate a clown cull. But, in Colombia, the killing has begun. Two clowns were shot dead during a circus performance. Last year another, Pepe, was killed in the same city. (I have, before you ask, a cast iron alibi.) The man must be caught, of course, but the only long term solution is to persuade all clowns to take up some less terrifying trade.
