Lubbock's premier creepy (or cutey?) clown has a message for all those dude bros on Facebook that said they'd shoot a clown if they happen to see one.

As you can see, precious baby Patches the Clown only wants to make you smile. That bat he carries around? That's to bash rats that were going to bite you. You said he chased you? He only wanted a hug. And why does he wear a mask? Again, rats. His face is made entirely out of rats.

You can meet precious Patches out at Nightmare On 19th Street Thursday, Oct. 27 - Friday, Oct. 31.
