The whole clown thing continues to get more ridiculous. As clown sightings, both legitimately criminal as well as hoaxes/pranks increase, I expect to hear more stories like this. It is only a matter of time before a clown ends up shot.

In Germany, a clown-prank gone wrong led to a 16 year old being stabbed by a friend.


The teenager donned a clown mask and grabbed a hammer on Monday night, hoping to give a fright to some of his unsuspecting friends, police stated in a report titled “Not at all funny”.

At around 7.30pm, he crept up on a group of other teenagers, but one of them, aged 14, didn’t find the prank so amusing, took a knife out of his bag and stabbed his perceived attacker in the torso.

Once his mask was removed, the 14-year-old recognized the disguised clown and treated his wound until an ambulance arrived.
Police initially detained the 14-year-old and then brought him to his parents. The 16-year-old had to undergo an operation at a hospital, but his injury is not life threatening, according to Tagesspiegel.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Is it just me or is this clown thing the perfect sidebar to the nightmare that is 2016?

    I wonder what the German equivalent of “It’s all fun and games until someone gets and eye put out” is.

      “laughing time is over.”

    yup, the clown idiocy is the icing on the 2016 cake IMO, but wait till you see the final decorations! it ain’t over yet and its going to get worse before it gets better.
