Say it! Say it! Say "I lost the nest-egg." Go on, say it!

Nothing like a frightening clown image to top off your weekend!

This one is a picture of the garishly unsettling sign for the Circus Circus Casino in Las Vegas. And circuses are supposed to be fun, right?

I'm reminded of one of my favorite films, Albert Brooks's Lost in America, where the couple meet the horrors of reality in Las Vegas. Looking at this sign, I can more fully understand where Brooks was going with this.

The Desert Inn has heart, the Desert Inn has heart....

scary as that is, the clown sign at Circus Circus in Reno is far more disturbing than the Las Vegas counterpart. Unfortunately I lack photographic evidence. But it is.

That clown has always given me the creeps. I haven't seen it up close since 1991 and it would be just fine with me if I never did again. Lost in America, however, is a different story. What a great comedy. Thanks for reminding me!

Arlene - Thanks for mentioning Reno's Circus Circus Casino. I have a picture of that one as well, and I'll be featuring it in the Gallery in the very near future. First, though, I wanted to include the Vegas one...if for no other reason, it gave me the opportunity to cite Lost in America

Worse than the clown sign at Circus Circus is the smell and sights at the All You Can Eat breakfast.
