The mall was a CIRCUS!
Literally!Mommy: Ben, look it's a circus!
Ben: Oh no!
Mommy: What's the matter? Don't you want to go to the circus?
Ben: No Mommy, they have clowns there.
Mommy: What's wrong with clowns?
Ben: They are scary. They wear makeup. Even the boys.
Well, it's official. We have another generation totally freaked out by clowns. It's a heritage to be proud of.
