If you were always terrified of clowns, your fears may have been prescient. The circus came to town in West Virginia when residents at Teays Valley Nursing and Rehab Center in West Virginia were subjected to an armed robbery from a man dressed as a clown and fiending for prescription pills and drugs. The bizarre incident began when the man broke through a back bathroom window while dressed in a clown mask and scrubs, wielding a gun and ordering a nurse to get down on the ground. Police say the suspect demanded pills and stole them from the nurses' cart before clambering out the same window he came in—presumably not wearing the shoes to go with his mask. The remaining patients and nurses at the center were either asleep or unaware of what was happening. Detectives have been interviewing and trying to get more information to crack the case, while the nursing home says it's taking extra precautions to prevent any similar incidents.

“Listen,” you tell the cop. “I know I passed the fucking test, and you know I passed the fucking test, so can I get back into my truck and drive home now?”
