CNN.com - Italian Study: "Clowns ease anxiety in young patients; Doctors and nurses annoyed, however..."

How surreal!
It's like that scene out of "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure"!!

CNN.com - Study: Clowns ease anxiety in young patients - Oct 3, 2005

(from Tom)

Now, I don't want to seem prejudiced, but I have to admit that I would always prefer my clowns outside the operating room... I mean, I'm not clown-phobic or anything, but that's gotta be nearly the last thing I wanna see when my mind's going under anesthesia!

Want the same effect without having to travel all the way to Florence? Not to mention, without the potential health risks?! Try your very own random "Evil Clown" generator here!

I heard this piece on NPR today, the researcher was asked if cartoons of clowns would work and of course they were found not to have the same effect. I was thinking what about pink bunnies, would those work too?
