I have compiled a list of the top 5 things that a Cajun might do if she (or he) saw a clown peering into her bedroom window:

  1. Shoot it.
  2. Shoot it.
  3. Shoot it.
  4. Shoot it.
  5. Scream, and then shoot it.

Okay, here is what one should  do if one were to see a clown peering into her (or his) bedroom window:

  1. Move out of sight of the window.
  2. Dial 911
  3. Prepare to defend yourself
  4. Move to a safe place in the home
  5. Stay on the phone with the 911 operator until police have arrived.

Now, the list above comes with some exceptions, as each case will be different. There is no "set" way to react if you were to see a clown (or anyone else, for that matter) peering into your window, but the main points are listed. For instance, if you are sleeping, and hear a tapping or a light scratching on your window and you slowly peer over your pillow and see the frazzly, orange hair sticking up above the over-exaggerated blue eye sockets and red nose of an offending clown, and the clown, upon seeing your awareness of his presence, frantically begins to break in through your window, by all means, run screaming from the house to the closest neighbor and ring the bell a few times. Then, when you see the clown approaching you and no one has answered the bell yet, move on to the next home, and begin the same process.  The most important thing to remember is to try to stay at least a few steps ahead of the clown because, if you don't, he'll (or she'll) get you.

End of story.

Sweet dreams.
