Is clown-phobia a recent phenomenon? Because otherwise, I really can't come up with any reason McDonald's and Jack in the Box have clowns as their mascots.

Logic: most kids hate clowns. Most kids love fast food. Clowns make fast food scary. Kids will hate fast food chains that feature clowns.

Perhaps clowns used to be lovable?

Hm. Perhaps not.

(pictures via Wikipedia and Foodbeast) - and yes, I did choose the picture of Ronald McDonald with Enrique Iglesias on purpose.
