The Horror...The Horror

Clowns Are Scary

In the original Gallery of the Absurd that I created and maintained back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, there were several specialty pages of ads and labels that were thematically based. There were, for instance, The Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week (which I brought back last week), The Arch Deluxe Hate Page (which eventually evolved into The McDonald's Hate Page), Jenny McCarthy, Enough Is Enough!, and one of my favorites, Clowns Are Scary. So in another attempt to rekindle the frightening glory that was the former Gallery of the Absurd, today I bring back the Clowns Are Scary portion of the site. There are more than enough examples of clowns used in advertisements, signs, and product labels, so we'll have plenty to keep us busy.

The first clown image I bring you is another oldie from the original Gallery. In fact, it's one of the first images I featured on the site. As if clowns weren't frightening enough, here's one sitting on the toilet. "Bring joy to the john!" Words all of us can live by.


I can't say anything else that could possibly add to the horror of this image.

If you know of any examples of clowns being used to advertise or market something, please alert me to them by sending me an email. Think of it as a way of building good karma.


Clowns scare me. They really do.
