Coulrophobia is not something to be laughed at. This unreasonable fear of clowns can cause nausea and panic. Although it is a rare fear, many individuals find clowns weird, if not outright frightening. Why? Part of the solution might be found in the prevalence of evil clowns in popular culture—think Pennywise from Stephen King's It (1986).

The problem is it needed a part they don’t make anymore and so the 1979 front disk brakes were about to fail completely and the rear drums had to work twice as hard.

Whether that's a twisted version of the natural world as animals turn rogue, traditional haunted houses doing their worst, or a classic slasher villain (or two) arriving for one more scare.
Dad had a hole in his head
I'm not sure which was weirder. The fact that dad had a hole in his head or the fact that he was so unimpressed with it.
