2. NEWS HIGHLIGHTS [19’30”]
a) Attack of the Clowns
Back in August, kids in an apartment complex in Greenville, South Carolina, reported seeing clowns in the woods, trying to lure them into the darkness. Since the events in Greenville, clown sightings have been reported in several states, and even in UK. Some people have actually been arrested for scaring people in costume, making clown-related threats, and in one case, chasing kids with a baseball bat while wearing a clown costume. Even Stephen King had to go on Twitter to tell us to all of us to just chill the fark out.
We discuss our all this and our haunting spiritual issues in this first news highlight.
b) Which presidential costume should you vote for?
Halloween is just days away and with the election campaigning in full swing, it’s tempting to lump the two together. Why not dress up as one of the presidential candidates — Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump — and have a bit of fun just days before the Nov. 8 election? Whatever you do, spare our eyes and don’t go nude like the naked Donald Trump statue.
