Clowns Are Scary… Except This One

scary-clownsOn the whole, I think clowns are terrifying.  (As well as “Elf on the Shelf” and people in full-blown furry costumes at amusement parks… but those are things for another time.)  Who knows where this fear started.  My parents have attributed it to the Stephen King book and movie “It”.  While I agree that “It” was/is the scariest TV movie ever made, I’m not sure that’s it.  

And I know I’m not alone.  Across America, millions of people share this same fear – Coulrophobia, or fear of clowns.  A quick Internet search revealed 16,100 results. There are even websites dedicated to the subject, such as, where coulrophobes gather to share their thoughts. Clowns are common characters at Halloween events such as Universal Studios yearly Halloween Horror Nights, which featured a killer clown as its main icon for several years. Clearly, the fear is real.

But, I found one clown that is laugh-out-loud-absolutely-100%-pee-in-your-pants hysterical… though I’m not sure the kids in the commercial share my feelings.  Watch and enjoy.

Auto-Tune the News

Unless you were living under a rock in 2010, you know who Antoine Dodson is. And most likely you know him from YouTube. His original interview is comedy gold. But you know what can make the news better? That’s right, if you turn it into a song! Thankfully for all of us, The Greggory Brothers have taken it upon themselves to find outrageous news stories and set them to music. Here are a few of my favorites:

Antoine Dodson – The Bed Intruder Song

Jimmy McMillan – The Rent Is Too Damn High

Charlie Sheen – Winning

Christine O’Donnell – I’m Not A Witch

Yeah, like some of those won’t be stuck in your head all day. You’re welcome.
