Diatribe: Gags The Green Bay Clown.


Gags the Green Bay ClownWe’ve done a lot of gardening and planting around our house this spring and have spent quite a bit of time trying to determine how we’ll install landscape lighting.  After purchasing some inexpensive solar lights that we’ve moved around several times, the right locations for their placement appear to have been determined. This weekend, weather permitting, we’ll work to install the light system and move on to the next project on our list.

Outdoor lighting serves several purposes and, because our home is in a somewhat remote neighborhood, we find a sense of security in knowing that our home is well-lit both when we’re away and while we’re inside.

We’re not afraid of the dark, but we also don’t live in Green Bay, Wisconsin where a mysterious and creepy-looking CLOWN has been roaming the streets in the dead of night.

According to a Facebook page called “Gags – The Green Bay Clown”, the first sighting of the scary clown occurred on Monday around 2:00 a.m.  Since then several other photos of the clown have been taken, mostly in the same area.

Local police are getting calls about the scary visitor but there’s not much than can be done.

“A person can walk down the sidewalk dressed however they want as long as they’re in a place they legally can be and they’re not in a place that has a closing time, like a park.” – Green Bay Police Capt. Kevin Warych

There is speculation that the clown is part of a viral marketing stunt, one reason being the mysterious Facebook page’s appearance just shortly after the clown’s first sighting.

I know a few people who are immensely frightened by the most harmless of clowns. I imagine seeing Gags walking down their street would send them screaming in terror!

One thing’s for sure, if I ever encounter a creepy clown carrying black balloons in our neighborhood I’ll be glad we’ve got plenty of lights around our house.  We might even add some more!
