A clown with seemingly no purpose has been spotted in and around Northampton on several occasions, frightening residents while becoming a social media celebrity. According to one account, the unidentified clown knocked on someone's door and offered to paint their windowsills though he had no paint or supplies on-hand.
Alan Moore, he of Watchmen fame, is working on a multimedia project entitled The Show which features a similarly spooky clown. Though he insists he is not the clown of Northampton, he says he may have inspired it.
