If you hate clowns...

…you’re not alone.

A survey found that decorating wards with images of clowns was more likely to frighten young patients than cheer them up.

More than 250 children aged between four and 16 were asked for their opinions – and every single one said they disliked clowns as part of hospital decor.

Even some of the older children said they found clowns scary, Nursing Standard magazine reported.

Well, yeah. Clowns are scary.

If you really hate clowns, don’t watch this video.

The hospital in the survey went back to plain walls with a few decorations here and there. Good move.
