Happy or Scary?

I'm going with scary. Because nothing is scarier than a clown ... except maybe a clown who jumps out at you when you least expect it.

If you’re opting out this year, have a great time in the next few weeks and keep up the good work!

I'm one of the, "don't like clowns" bunch. Whoever said that they are funny?

It's Christmas Eve. Have a happy Christmas. Hugs and kisses for all.

Love the colors. Merry Christmas Eve!

Brenda's Arizona said...

Totally agree with you!
Merry Christmas, Laurie!

Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't care...

There's some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than

So why can't you?

(A clown has feelings too.)

Young children often delight in that surprise of the JACK popping out of the box. That little jester guy doesn't creep me out like the circus clowns do but I certainly understand your view of scary. I had one when I was little, but I can't remember what popped out. I don't think it was a clown.

wv: scasiv - combine scary with pensiv(e) and that's what this little guy is

I don't understand the fear some people have of clowns. I know it's real. My intelligent 32 year old daughter has always been creeped out by them. I don't like snakes - I almost stepped on a 4 foot rattler once and it took the rest of the day to calm down.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I like real clowns, and Jack in the Boxes!!! But don't like clown art...if you can call it that!!!

I'm going with scary too. Don't look at those colors if you've had too much eggnog.

Merry, merry!

Mister Earl said...

Honestly, I've never heard of anyone who was afraid of clowns outside of a David Lynch movie. Am I in a David Lynch movie? Mayberry RFD David Lynch style?

Judy Williams said...

I know tons of people afraid of clowns. And you're right Margaret, clown art? NO THANKS (shudder)

Petrea Burchard said...

I'm not afraid of clowns, but in some ways I think they're creepy. So, "creepy" is my choice.

How do I segue from that to Merry Christmas?

Merry Christmas Laurie, Jon, Little Bit and all your readers!
