Pharp!! Pharp !!!!



Police in Norfolk have advised the public to ignore people dressed as clowns after several unnerving sightings.

A member of the public contacted police after being spooked by a person wearing a full clown outfit with a red wig in Gaywood, near King’s Lynn.

Superintendent Carl Edwards said no one had been injured or assaulted, but advised that people ignore the clowns so as not to give them the attention they probably want.

"Firstly I’d like to stress that it isn’t against the law to dress up as a clown," he said.

"Nobody has been assaulted and it appears that the people involved are waiting for a passer-by to be startled by their appearance and run away, and then the clown runs after them for a short distance.

"We know there has been a lot of gossip and conversations about this on social media channels, not just in Norfolk, and it is important to gain a perspective on these incidents.

"We appreciate this can worry people, especially the young or elderly. The most effective way to behave if you are to see someone dressed up is to give no reaction – because that’s what they are after."

Bit of a downer advice wise, for the paying customers at ZIPPO'S current Christmas spectacular in Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland, but there you go.

‘It was that look in his eyes officer... as he came at me with a bucket of confetti!!!’

It is madness sometimes what people call police for.

I shouldn’t mock as there is a recognised phobia of clowns called Coulrophobia

There are some other interesting phobias out there

Fear of men is Androphobia

Fear of clocks is Chronomentrophobia

Fear of cooking is Mageirocophobia

Fear of speed is called Tachophobia

Fear of beautiful woman is called Venustraphobia

Fear of upsetting politicians is called the Police Federation of England and Wales

Why do we pat fed fees? The leadership with no real bargaining tools achieve very little ! A more confrontational Bob Crowe approach in media and to politicians would work especially as the government is fighting all emergency services do to their beliefs(privatise them and get a directorship)!

Why do we pay Fed Fees..

'Happy hour' at the bar at Mothership Leatherhead doesnt pay for itself!

I reckon I'd get more attention and credibility from politicians than the FED if I stood b*****k naked at the car park gates banging two dustbin lids together.
