Two creepy clowns have been caught. Of course, they weren’t actually creeping creepy clowns. They were creepy clown callers-in, or whatever the proper term may happen to be.
During a subsequent interview with deputies, Brandon Jerome Moody, the man who placed the 911 call, initially claimed to have seen “clowns around a white van parked on Hammett Road.” Moody, 26, then changed his story before admitting that he fabricated the clown tale.
Moody, pictured above, confessed that he was aware of “all the complaints about clowns and the schools being on lock down.”
Leonard Pitts, Jr., laments the passing of truth. A nugget:
So reads an email sitting in my inbox.
Not shockingly, Snopes, the fact-checking website, has rated the claim it makes as false. . . . .
That truth is not offered in hopes of persuading my correspondent. It is presented simply as a snapshot in time, a postcard from post-factual America.

Read it. And weep.
