Overheard On #PennStateClownWatch Twitter
When my grandchildren ask me about 2016, I’ll tell them about the time Penn State embarked on a full-blown Monday evening rally because of alleged clown sightings.
The Twitterverse was just as wild. Penn Staters were freaking out about clowns last night online and offline. Here are the best tweets from last night’s pandemonium:
Every other school @ clowns: omg so scary *takes pic*
Psu kids: *starts running through the streets doing a ‘we are’ chant
What the hell

This is basically Penn State’s new logo.
@OnwardState back in my day we just got drunk and went news van flipping. I don’t understand kids these days.

If Joey Julius isn’t prepared to deck some clowns, we’re all screwed.

Please, Joey. You’re the hero we need but don’t deserve right now.
As always, it was completely quiet in North. Goodnight everyone

Look at what we’re doing to the nation.
I bet the clowns got stopped and asked “excuse me, are you registered to vote in state college?”
