Funniest Spam Ever!

A few years ago, two parents went out for dinner. A few hours later, the babysitter was calling to ask if she could cover up the clown statue in the kids' room,

the father said,"Take the kids and get out of the house. We'll call the police, we don't have a clown statue."
The "clown statue" is really a killer that escaped from jail. If you don't post this letter on to 10 fan pages tonight, the clown will be in your bed at 3:00 am with a chainsaw in his hand.

I have seen many types of spam, but this. This is the funniest ever! Are they trying to scare 5 year olds?
