Well, it finally happened. A police report out of Berlin, Germany says that a teenager dressed up like a clown to scare a friend and ended up getting stabbed. What did he expect to happen? This whole thing reminds me of that song from the musical Chicago. How does it go again? Oh, yeah.
According to the Chief of Police in Berlin, a 16-year-old wearing a clown mask and wielding a hammer tried to scare his friends when a 14-year-old acquaintance pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the alleged aggressor in the torso. It was only after they removed the clown's mask that they recognized the boy as one of their friends. The 14-year-old administered first aid on the older teen until he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.
The 14-year-old boy was initially arrested before being handed over to his parents, because it is probably pretty easy to convince authorities that you acted in self-defense when you explain that you were pursued by a FREAKIN' CLOWN WITH A HAMMER.
"Creepy clown" bonanza started around August when reports of gangs of clowns trying to lure children into the woods came out of South Carolina. Since then, reports of creepy clowns have popped up all over the world. Why? Because some sick people want to make 2016 even worse than it already is.
