"Relentlessly comical"

This is a few weeks old, but it's my quote of the day from the BBC, on why clowns are terrifying to kids:
It is the fear of the mask, the fact that it doesn't change and is relentlessly comical.

Just that description of why it's terrifying sort of terrifies me. The fear of the mask... it doesn't change... relentless comical... *dies gripping bike horn*

"Relentlessly Comical" should be the title for Zach Galifianakis' autobiography. Not that I'm calling him a clown.

Ha ha. I added a similar article to my del.icio.us because the headline made me laugh. :)

I meant similar to the words you hyperlinked-- not relentlessly comical. Have you seen Xeni Jardin's visit to the Psycho Ex-Girlfriend warehouse with the giant clown puppet?

I haven't, but it sounds like something I need to put on my travel itinerary.
