Fly 92's Marissa To Confront Clown Phobia
July 11, 2014 at 9:33 AM (PT)
PAMAL Top 40 WFLY (FLY 92.3)/ALBANY, NY APD/MD/afternoon host MARISSA has an issue with clowns, which she's ready to bravely confront for a good cause.
MARAISSA said, "I've been intently watching this KICKSTARTER page where a man from COLUMBUS, OH was trying to raise a mere $10 to make his very first potato salad. As of yesterday afternoon, his account for this was up to $75,000+. No, you didn't read that wrong and yes, it is ridiculous. As you're pondering that amazingly large amount of donations submitted by more than 5,000 people, I'm sure you're also having the same thoughts that I have -- "don't we have better uses for our hard-earned cash than THIS?! "
"So, here's the deal. I want to reach what hopefully will be a simply goal of $1,000 to benefit the DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ADVOCACY PROGRAM based out of MECHANICVILLE, NY. My proposition is this: if we reach this goal or surpass it, I'm going to face a fear. We all have plenty of stupid things that scare us, but I've made my fear pretty clear over the years on FLY92.3 and I get made fun of on the regular for it. I hate clowns. I despise them. I've even backhanded one after it followed me out of the 'clown room' of a haunted house. It'll all be caught on video: my explanation of how this all started, to my inevitable meeting with said clown or *gulp* clowns. I can't say I'll beat my fear, but my inhaler will be nearby if need be. Be a part of this social experiment with me, won't you? And donate to something way more beneficial than potato salad and a much sillier outcome to view over and over again."
