I'm certain some of you have seen the new banner, and have been thinking,
"Where can I get me some of THAT?" Well, the background I stole from HERE, the lettering I did myself in Photoshop. And for the evil clown, I used Scott's Evil Clown Generator. Go ahead. Try it. It's actually pretty darn fun.
But what is it about scary clowns? Clowns don't have to be scary to creep people out, so why do people go the extra mile to make them extra freaky?
Is he done yet? Oh, I'm far from done.
Everyone's favorite, The Simpsons, can't stay away from the motif, either. Krusty? That's too easy of a shot. Sideshow Bob? The big shoe fits, but that's not where I'm going. I'm going back to season 4. The episode with Maggie's first word. Homer built Bart this bed, as they moved him out of his baby crib and inspiring the classic line:
"Can't sleep. Clown will eat me."
But you're right, that's not disturbing enough. I tried looking for the video on line of Bart saying the line, curled up all fetal, but I really didn't have any luck. Then I found this 3-D rendering of Bart saying the line. Set "Disturbing" factor to 11!
Not there yet? Did I mention that I want to have a haunted house some day, just filled with clowns? My centerpiece will be a guy in a dentist chair, with blood all over the place, and the patient screaming over the sound of the high pitched drill.
I'm guessing nobody is reading down here after that picture, so I will leave you with two more videos. The first one I don't think was originally intended to be a mind freak, but it is. The second one is actually a great Wal-Mart commercial that I loved when it was in the TV rotation.
