There oughtn't to be clowns



Do you like clowns? No, you don't. Nobody likes clowns (except my friend Virginia, for some strange reason that probably has to do with her being raised by thespians). So a simple rule of thumb is this: When trying to make a house appealing to potential buyers, do not have the only interior photo be of clowns.

Isn't it rich?

While I find clowns creepy too, those are famous, expensive clowns.

Red Skelton painted them and even the prints fetch a pretty hefty price tag.

Are we a pair?

And over the mantle at that, as if to suggest beloved family members. *shudder*

Good lord, Sara's right:

I don't care. It's still wrong.

Thanks a lot for posting that link. Now I'm going to have even more nightmares than I was going to already.

It's all a bit John Wayne Gacy...

Omigod, is that my mom's house? She also has a collection of Red Skelton paintings. They were very popular in the 1970s. Don't ask me why.
