Phantom Clowns and Bigfoot

What's the connection between "Phantom Clowns" and "Bigfoot"? The visual comics and cartoonists have not been afraid to venture into this realm, long before the current flap.

McDonald Corp., 2006.








Daniel Charles Piraro, 2010





Kerry Callen, 2014.




Chris Holm, 2016.





The origins of the overlap...


Louisiana, Missouri, 1972 (Momo)


Brookline, Massachusetts, and the elsewhere, 1981 (Phantom Clowns)



Greenville, SC, 2016 (Phantom Clowns)

Good catch. Caught my eye, too. Red Earth. Salt. Desert area. Palms: psalm. Lebanon so close to Syria, and all.

Psalm 29, verses 5-9
5
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the CEDARS OF LEBANON.
6
He makes LEBANON leap like a calf,
SIRION[b] like a young wild ox.
7
The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.
8
The voice of the Lord SHAKES THE DESERT;
the Lord shakes the DESERT OF KADESH.
9
The voice of the Lord TWISTS THE OAKS[c]
and STRIPS THE FOREST BARE.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

Two more clown articles:

This one is about how haunted houses are dealing with stuff, and references how Ohio was named the most haunted state (with a link)

And this clown got hit by a guy with a gun (not shot, sounds like more whacked).
