TSS - Send in the Clowns and Other Noise



Clown Facts

  • Clowns have been around since 2400 BCE in Egypt [I wonder if they have clowns in their tombs?].
  • Clown International in England is the oldest clown country club of sorts.[ I wonder what their member's only jacket looks like?]
  • Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns.
  • John Wayne Gacy was a serial killer known as the "Killer Clown".  [Do you think he killed because his parents named him John Wayne?!]
  • I watched the flick Killer Klowns from Outer Space many moons ago, but don't remember a freakin' thing about it.  I'm sure I laughed.
  • These definitions from Urban Dictionary made me giggle. 
  • There's a very popular Clown Forum where you can find and speak all things clown.  
  • There's even a Clown Prayer, what the what?!
But, why is all of this relevant you might ask?  Duh!  We want you to join us in an early Holla-Halloween-Horror in September.  There is power in numbers, friends.  Those who cry out in fear together, stay together. 

Plus.  I still have six noses to give away.  (Remember I'm mailing them out to the first who e-mail me their snail mail). 

So who are these krazy kids who will be joining us so far? [If there's an ** by your name that means you've e-mailed me your addy.  Noses will be sent out at the end of next week]

Trish @ Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity [she also inadvertently started this madness]**
Natalie @ Coffee and a Book Chick **
Vasily @ 1330v Thoughts of an Eclectic Reader
Care @ Care's Online Book Club**
Maree @ Just Add Books
Patti @ Peppermint PhD
Angela @ Avanta Knits**
Lu @ Regular Ruminations**

We're still working on:

Ti @ Book Chatter
Zibilee @ Raging Bibliomania
and....YOU!!

So, go get your copy of IT by Stephen King [#italong] and join us for our readalong in September.  If not, we just might send in the clowns.

Much love,

Princess Clown Nose

  1. This post made me laugh. I think it's a great idea and a fun way to get people to join in. Sounds like a good time. School starts up in a week so I won't be joining any new projects for a while, but this one tempts me.

  3. Hahaha, I so saw where this post was going! Alas I read It in February, and I'm just not ready for it again! But y'all are going to love it/be appropriately terrified of it!

    1. Yes I can see how reading it AGAIN so quickly after the first time was not long ago would be rough going!

  4. I can't believe you laughed at Killer Klowns from Outer Space! I first watched that movie as a child and it scared the crap out of me! Just emailed you!
