“A police force has told members of the public to ignore people dressed as clowns if they meet them in the street.
“Norfolk police received a report from a member of the public alarmed by a clown sighting in Gaywood, near King’s Lynn, on Tuesday evening.
“The suspect was described as wearing a ‘full clown outfit’ with a red suit and red hair.
“The following evening the force received a similar report after two clowns were spotted near a skate park in the town. These people wore ‘Halloween-type’ clown masks.
“In both cases, the callers reported being alarmed and being chased a short way up the road.”
Trigger warning: clowns.
Apparently, there’s been a menacing clown outbreak in Norfolk (UK). No word on whether “clown syndrome” is contagious or transmissible by biting. But I’m worried.

The Glasswinged Butterfly.
The pretty creature, who is a native of Mexico and South America, does not lack the tissues that make up a full wing, but rather the coloured scales that other butterflies have.
This thing is amazing.

McIntosh County Shouters
The southeastern ring shout is probably the oldest surviving African American performance tradition on the North American continent.
It continues to be performed in a black community in McIntosh County on Georgia’s coast. This compelling fusion of counterclockwise dancelike movement, call-and-response singing, and percussion of hand clapping and a stick beating a drumlike rhythm on a wooden floor is clearly African in its origins and most salient features. The ring shout affirms oneness with the Spirit and ancestors as well as community cohesiveness.
As the tradition developed in slavery times, strong elements of Christian belief were grafted onto it. The ring shout was first described in detail during the Civil War (1861-65) by outside observers in coastal regions of South Carolina and Georgia. Its practice continued in those areas well into the twentieth century, even as its influence was resounding in later forms like spiritual, jubilee, and gospel music, and elements of jazz. By the last quarter of the twentieth century, however, the ring shout itself was presumed to have died out until its rediscovery in 1980 in McIntosh County.
