Unintentionally Scary Things

Daily Dose

Jeff Dunham is terrible.

My costume just arrived in the mail today. It was handmade in Communist China by Communist Chinamen who probably don’t even celebrate THE ONLY HOLIDAY THAT MATTERS. It is for these poor souls who have been deprived their freedom that I wear this costume (but please don’t stop making my sneakers for slave wages, Communist Chinamen!). This is going to be the best THE ONLY HOLIDAY THAT MATTERS ever! Me and Neil Young are going to keep on getting drunk and dressing up like idiots in the free world!

Okay, we’re just 1 day away from TOHTM. We’ve done this, this, this, this, this and this in the run-up to TOHTM. Now it’s time for this.

We all know what’s supposed to be scary…ghosts, vampires, gay marriage, etc. But the scariest scares are those scares that come from those ostensibly non-scary things. Hipsters would call them “ironic scares,” then those hipsters would be offended that you called them hipsters and demand you stop persecuting their fragile subculture with thought crimes.

Here now is a clutch of the unintentionally terrifying. They're the symbols of childhood and innocence that have been distilled into nightmare sauce by popular culture. Enjoy!

Thought crimes! Yes!!!

p.s. I freakin' LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba. Especially the episode w/ Eijah Wood's Dancey Dance "The Puppet Master". http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1773014. Oh, baby....

Even though I question the wisdom of letting mini-Bootsy Collins host a children's show, I still love Yo Gabba Gabba!

A few suggestions via Twitter:

@synthiacat "Those are scary, @lcom, and Imma let you finish, but the scariest cat vid of all time is here: http://bit.ly/hDQLV"

@bear_attack "@lcom you want to see scary? Look up @Musov shoko's 'clowns' video"

And so I did, @bear_attack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS8oWLOvv6w

And thank you, @synthiacat. That cat video is indeed horrifying.

And Victoria and Caterina? Grow up. It's a show for children. Now if you mental infants will pardon me, I'm off to play with my Batman toys...OKBYELOL! ;)
