Scary stories you'd like to share?

Here is a good urban legend about clowns. Those with clown phobias, do not read.

So-and-so's friend, a girl in her teens, is babysitting for a family in Newport Beach, Ca. The family is wealthy and has a very large house — you know the sort, with a ridiculous amount of rooms. Anyways, the parents are going out for a late dinner/movie. The father tells the babysitter that once the children are in bed she should go into this specific room (he doesn't really want her wandering around the house) and watch TV there.

The parents take off and soon she gets the kids into bed and goes to the room to watch TV. She tries watching TV, but she is disturbed by a clown statue in the corner of the room. She tries to ignore it for as long as possible, but it starts freaking her out so much that she can't handle it.

She resorts to calling the father and asks, "Hey, the kids are in bed, but is it okay if I switch rooms? This clown statue is really creeping me out."

The father says seriously, "Get the kids, go next door and call 911."

She asks, "What's going on?"

He responds, "Just go next door and once you call the police, call me back."

She gets the kids, goes next door, and calls the police. When the police are on the way, she calls the father back and asks, "So, really, what's going on?"

He responds, "We don't HAVE a clown statue." He then further explains that the children have been complaining about a clown watching them as they sleep. He and his wife had just blown it off, assuming that they were having nightmares.

The police arrive and apprehend the "clown," who turns out to be a midget. A midget clown! I guess he was some homeless person dressed as a clown, who somehow got into the house and had been living there for several weeks. He would come into the kids' rooms at nights and watch them while they slept. As the house was so large, he was able to avoid detection, surviving off their food, etc. He had been in the TV room right before the babysitter right came in there. When she entered he didn't have enough time to hide, so he just froze in place and pretended to be a statue.

This is an anti-trunctuated persyn story! It is offensive to all non-lofty womyn and penised persyns! We would do well to celebrate their closer proximity to Mother Earth!

When I was a girl, growing up in Alabama, I heard that story - but instead of a clown it was a colored person homeless midget - he was dressed as a jockey and holding a little lantern.

Colored person? What is this, 1953?

It would have been better if: the father says "there's no clown statue", tells her to grab the kids and run. She edges out of the room, but can't find the kids. She finally runs screaming up the street, passing the Cops and the frantic parents.

No trace of the children or the clown are ever found again.

The babysitter ends up in an insane asylum, catatonic.

Not much of a story, but I have this tarot card software in my computer which has a feature that is called "Tarot Card of the Day". One morning it stated that the day would be filled with love and moral support from others. Two hours later I found my mother dead and since my mother was known and beloved in the city I was living back then people from all over town rushed to my mom's place to pay their respect and voice their support for the coming days, weeks, and months.

R12, it actually said "mortal" support.

As a little person who has spent his life dealing with this kind of shit, I ask that you all F&F this and call the site owners and complain.

I would but I can't reach the phone.

That was actually scaring the shit out of me until the midget part. Loved it, though.
