IT'S TIME TO STAND UP AND SAY...NO MORE!

I've come to a realization.....I've remained silent on this issue for much to long. My time has come to get off my duff and finally take a stand!!!

ENOUGH clown abuse!

Why do clowns get such a bad rap??? Come on people...you know who you are....you make sly statements like....."ewww clowns are creepy"....or "clowns SCARE ME!"

What have you got against clowns? Why do you have to be so mean? What has a clown ever done to you!!!!








Clowns are out there doing a pretty tough job. I mean c'mon...working with kids all day ain't a picnic! And circus life...under the big top....You have NO idea.....











And Clowns are Friendly....their one and only desire is to make you laugh. How noble is that!

They wear bright colors because they know that bright colors cheer us up!

They always greet us with big smiles...do you think clowns don't ever have a bad day? Of course they do, clowns get sad and blue....do you have any idea how much big floppy bow ties cost these days??? And lets not even talk about the price of RUFFLES...but do they get all mopey and ask you to feel sorry for them...No they smile and soldier on!

They do silly things to their hair just to get a giggle.....Imagine combing that out every morning!



They wear dopey clothes and funny hats to bring us cheer....do they worry that they might look unfashionable....NO! Their only concern is for our joy.


They go to the trouble to paint their noses red...and wear lots of make up...Do you know how hard it is to get this stuff off???? When was the last time you said...."Hey mister clown...thanks for ruining your skin for my amusement".

And we know they just LOVE little kids.....LOVE them like they were their own....And then you go and teach your kids to cry and run away....nice...I hope you're proud!


If clowns were "creepy" do you think they'd be used in marketing....I think not! Obviously clowns are an effective tool to sell things that people NEED.


And clowns are patriotic....they love this great country. They only want to come to our parties and help us celebrate!


And one thing with clowns.....THE MORE THE MERRIER! I can't think of anything more fun than a whole bunch of clowns! Have you ever seen how many fit into one of those little cars! CLOWNS are amazing!!!


So enough of this unwarranted fear of our dear friends....invite a clown over today........



Give him a big hug and put him up in your guest room. It's time to make clowns feel special again. Let them know we care!

I think today should be "HUG A CLOWN DAY" !!! And no more of that "creepy" talk. Clowns have feelings to ya know!

When did clowns go from funny to scary? PS. I found your blog cause of a post you made on the Barking Mad blog. I loved what you said. Good job. Also I love your blog.

Heather said...

I can't believe the stuff you come up with! Thanks for the laughs ;)

Swirl Girl said...

I am scared to death now. Thanks.

I knew I hated clowns for a reason, and you just illustrated that.

Let's add carni's to the hate list. I dont' trust anyone in unstrcutured suede boots.

joelandbecca said...

Ok where do you come up with this!? You are so hilarious. I love it!

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL Kathi...hmmm did she just compliment or insult me??? And I'm so glad you do visit!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Great. Now I'm going to have to look under my bed like THREE times tonight.

Stephen King's "It" - 'nough said.

Jan said...

Okay Nikki. You did not convince in here. Those clowns are freaky girl. My daughter is so scared of them. I am not that scared of them, but after this, I might change my mind :) Have a great weekend.

Smilingsal said...

Ahem, I'll just let you do the hugging on these clown-friends of yours--YOU CLOWN! lol

Linda said...

LOL and me framing an ultrasound makes you chuckle?? LMAO off girl. You are tooooo funny. I can't wait to see what you will think up next ( I think) hehehehe

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

To tell the truth Nikki, I've always loved clowns. You may have changed my mind. LOL These are the scariest looking clowns I have ever.. seen!!! OMG!!!!

Sandy Toes said...

Those are the scariest clowns I have ever seen!
-sandy toes

Deb said...

I'm sure Pennywise has spoiled the whole bunch. LOL!!!!
They all look as if they will eat us alive! Run!! Run!! LOL!!!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

How can kid's favorites take such scary turns? oooh ! they look horrible!

Melissa Wertz said...

Nikki, I think I am scared of your clowns... I don't think they work for the circus or should go to any children's parties....

Melissa Wertz said...

In fact, that ronald mcdonald looks like he might eat a child.

da Bergs said...

Yikes some of those totally scared ME! You are too funny!

Anonymous said...

Nikki,
I have to wonder if all those years that I dressed up like a clown for Halloween and came to your school (and totally embarassed you and your brothers) is what caused you to have this fetish against clowns!!!! Oh my - to think that I might be responsible for doing this terrible thing to my sweet daughter!!! Is it to late to repent.
Love ya,
Mom

Coco said...

I am never coming to any of your birthday parties. NO WAY.

Those are sick and disturbing pictures. I'm scared.

nikkicrumpet said...

Ummmm Yes MOM...it was all your fault LOL...but I still love and adore you!

Rue said...

I just want to say thank you for giving Rich (he happened to be in the room) and me nightmares tonight.... AAAAAAAAAAAAA......

hugs for you though,
rue

tardevil said...

I know Nikki, I'm crazy...but I have a lot of company! :O)

imjacobsmom said...

Thanks for the nightmares! It still scares the crap out of me. When I was about 4 I had a cluster of clowns surround me and one of them asked me if I had fingernails on my toes and toenails on my fingers - eww! I was appalled for a long, long time. Actually, I still am.....Robyn

Michael said...

At least the song is great :)

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Thanks Nikki...I wasn't afraid of clouds until NOW!!! Don't think I'll ever look at them in quite the same way again after THIS post! I think I'll need my blankey to sleep tonight!!! :-) Susan

Lo said...

I swear I'm going to have nightmares for days...Yikes!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Clowns are strange dudes. My 18 year old is and has always been petrified of them. Of course, I would never use that to my advantage or anything. LOL!!!

salmagundi said...

OK Nikki you've scared everyone in blogland - there will be nightmares big time tonight! But, you somehow always make things funny. Sally

Ma'dame French said...

Ahh there not so bad~~~~really! French;)

Jori @ Jeff & Me + 3 said...

That was pretty clever...and a bit creepy and disturbing (the pics, not the writer!!)

;)

Darlene said...

OK Nikki I never used to be afraid of clowns....now I am kind of skeered!!!!!!!!!!

Mc Allen said...

I seriously love you... I have no dea where in the world you came up with all of this, but I am not worthy, I am bowing at you feet. you are defenately doing a guest post for me so get to scheming , I mean planning girl!! My turkey beak aint got nothin on you!!LA

Laura said...

And you didn't even mention the giant feet they have to walk around with - how they don't trip and fall is pretty miraculous!

amelia bedelia said...

ok, you freak! that was weird.

amelia bedelia said...

ok, you freak! that was weird.

amelia bedelia said...

so weird that I had to comment twice!

Fifi Flowers said...

I'm sorry but I am one of those people who do not like clowns... they are creepy!
GREAT photo collection!
NOW you go hug a clown! LOL

ENJOY your weekend!
Fifi

tammy said...

I'm so calling you when I wake up screaming in the night tonight.

squawmama said...

OK... I askared now and probably will have NIGHTMARES... This was funny... you are something my dear friend... Have a great evening and don't let the clowns bite...

(((HUGS)))

AJ said...

I'm sitting here bra-less(i knew you'd appreciate that) thinking to myself, "clowns don't creep me out", then I remebered the one from Poltergeist. Yeah, and then those pictures you posted keep popping into my head. If I have a nightmare tonight, I blame you;)

GaleForceOne said...

EWWWW...Eww.ew.ew..../shivers with disgust

I am completely creeped out by this post Mom. Maybe you should take a rest and get on your duff!

Jess

John Deere Mom said...

I hate clowns and now I may be permanently scarred for life. Thanks a lot! ;)

Allgrins said...

OMG! I have had a reaccuring dream about clowns since I was little. I am always a little girl in the dream. I am walking up to my childhood home and a clown gets out of a icecream truck and tries to grab me. I can't scream and I can't get the house door to open. It is awful! You just scared the begeebees out of me!!!LOL I must have watched something scary to do with clowns when I was little or maybe I thought the icecream man was a perv!

JyLnC said...

I've always liked clowns and it's probably because I have never run across any of the clowns featured in your blog. Wow - they need some serious therapy and a good orthodontist. :>)

Amy said...

I always wondered about some people's fear of clowns. Wow, now I see where it may come from. HAHA!

Bo said...

You are a crazy, fun gal, Nikki... Now I must ask you, have you been watching "Boston Legal" where James Spader's character is afraid of clowns?...what a FUNNY scenario... ;-) Bo

Chris said...

Ok, now I feel so guilty, My kids were scared to death of clowns, guess that's how they saw them. I was always trying to get them to want one.

Hugs,
Chris

Justine said...

Oh, you skanky bitch! I'll be having nightmares tonight now! Ugh, CLOWNS ARE FREAKS!!!!!!!! It all started with Poltergeist. "Can you hear me Carol Anne? Come to the light, Carol Anne!!" ::::::::shiver::::::::
Justine :o )

Twice as Nice said...

What did you do to my BOZO? I tried so hard to get tickets to The Bozo Show for my kids before he retired. Now he's a freak.

Where do you come up with all these ideas? You have enough imagination to write a book.

Becky said...

Gurl, I have NEVER been scared of clowns. Well I am now, I think I just pooped my pants. If I don't sleep tonight it's totally your fault! LOL!!!! As my middle grandson would say, "go away clowns, go away". HA!!!

Shelia said...

Now Nikkiness, I know you mean well, honey, but I think you need some glasses. These are very scary clowns. Down right deamons!! They are colorful, tho. When my son was a baby, he was terrified of clowns. You are a good story teller! When do you think up this stuff? lol
Be a terrified sweetie,
shelia :)

Nancy said...

Hi Nikki, Well girl, this is the first time I have ever, ever saw a clown that scared the dickens out of me!!!LOL You know how to put storys together like no one else! You really need to write a book! You're good Nikki! Nancy

Heather said...

Okay, I have NEVER been afraid of clowns, except for Tim Curry as Pennywise in the TV movie version of Stephen King's It (and I mean, he was *supposed* to be scary), until I looked at the pictures in this post.

Now, I may join my sister and nephew (she passed her major fear along to him) in their lifelong, utter terror of all things clown.

*shudder*

This was not the post to read right before toddling off to bed...

LOL!

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

These are some spooky clowns!

I don't know why...but lots of little kids are scared of clowns...even the ones with silly faces.

Donna Marie said...

Alyson (New England Living) said...

That one picture was clearly child abuse. Why would you ever bring a child around that freaky clown?! Holy crap! That kid will have nightmares until he's 30!

laurie said...

Thanks so much for making me afraid of clowns! Especially right before I go to bed. You are way too funny and way too scary! laurie

QuirkyLoon said...

Carolynn said...

dana said...

I think I saw a couple of those dudes when I was Trick or Treating with my Gr. Daughter. Yep, I'm sure I did. Dana

PS-Your yard turned out great! You can come and decorate any part of my house or yard any time you want--OK?

WheresMyAngels said...

It's 11:30 pm here, I'm alone at work (well not including the sleeping people I am caring for)and now I have to get thru the WHOLE NIGHT with these horrid images scarying me! Thanks! lol

Anna Lefler said...

Good Lord! Guess I'll be pullin' an all-niter tonight because I'll never sleep again after lookin' at those photos! Damn!

I remain steadfast and immovable in my staunchly anti-clown position.

I went to see Cirque du Soleil, after all. What do you people want from me?!?!

ZenMom said...

I am SO sending you my therapy bill.

mishebe said...

oh my god. SCARY........ MISHELLE

Mamarazzi said...

seriously a little warning next time.

I. Am. Skeeeeerd!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Yikees!!! I knew there was a reason that I was none too fond of clowns! I'll never forget what happened when my daughter was around 2 years old. Someone came in to our church to entertain they school age kids dressed as a clown. My child took one look and let out the most mindboggling scream of terror that I have ever heard uttered by a 2 year old!

She is now with a man who has clowns tattooed on him depicting the Insane Clown Posse. I don't know how she sleeps with him!

Kitty Scraps said...

Yikes! Not loving the clowns so much anymore *giggles*

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

A gazzillion comments on your clown post because it is TOO DANG FUNNY! I am laughing so hard, and I needed this right now. You are a HOOT!! Do your kids think you've lost it like mine do? No, they probably already knew that, right?

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

oh man, and I better leave you more comment love to make it back to your blog list. I am here, really, just haven't been commenting lately with CRZY life! :)

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

Now I remember WHY I've always thought clowns are a little creepy! Thanks, Nikki!!! Ha.

jill jill bo bill said...

This is officer Dan from the Ennis Police Dept.
We had a report that the lady of the house was last seen running down the street screaming and hasn't been seen since 9am this morning. Upon further investigation, we found her computer opened to your website where we had to give CPR to 3 officers who saw your pictures. We have to assume that these said pictures was the reason the victim, a Ms Jilljillbobill, left town out of fear. Please report to our office for booking. You are officially under arrest for scaring her to death. No body has been found. We are checking the local country club to see if any local golfers have seen her. Rumors are ciculating that they have.

Chrissy said...

Blueberry Buttons said...

Good grief, will you hurry up and make another post......That's so scary..Thank you dear one for siging my book. I hope you didn't get a dozen emails like French did.

Hugs,

KC Mom said...

I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep tonight.

jeanne said...

Nikki, are you kidding me? You be the first one to start a new trend to 'love' a clown. Invite one to dinner and put one up in the guest room where your mom stayed. I wonder what your mom would say about that. LOL

I do hope one of these 'scare the you know what out of you'clowns will not be your first guest. Ok, maybe Ronald MacDonald. He has scary teeth!!!

Spare me all the details and get to the point when you post your first endeavor 'Be nice to a clown visit' I don't think I can stand a picture, so spare me. Smiling BIG!!!!

You are a nut, but a funny nut and I love that about you.

Jeanne Dang, I will have nightmares tonight.

Raxx - A day in the life said...

LOL!! I was thinking the same thing as Chris I scrolled down to leave this message! I wish I could have scrolled faster, now I need to watch a cartoon before I go to bed, just to get those 'clowns' out of my head!

Nikki as much as I love your doggies and all, dont you think it's time for a pic of you in your profile?? hmmmmmmmm?

I would love that!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Oh and just in case you dont like my suggestion, please dont send a clown after me! lol!!

Adventure girl wanna be said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I hope I don't have bad dreams tonight!

santamaker said...

Nikki, YOU are ONE TWISTED SISTAH!

TMI said...

Aaaah I could hardly read this post! Ever since I stayed in my Aunt's house, in her extra bedroom, where she stored her collection of creepy clowns, I've had this insane fear of clowns! And the pix you chose - extra creepy. Yikes!

Marrdy said...

Perfect, nightmares on Sunday night!!

Straight to Your Hart said...

K-I am officially creeped out..twisted and freakish dreams tonight!! Whenever I hear the song of a bird..or look at the scary clowns face (um..blue..blue sky. Whenever I feel the pain (I mean rain) on my face..Or the clown (oops wind) as it rushes by..

See..trying to think happy thoughts and sing but oh my troubled soul...LOL..tehe!!! CRACK me up.

bj said...

Clowns don't scare me, Nikki....there's just not much that DOES scare this ole gal...
Well...a few things, maybe...
love, bj

Auds at Barking Mad! said...

Thank you so much for the never-ending nightmares I am going to have because of this post. Oh and you had to ice the cake and include a photo of Pennywise? Gee, that's just lovely!

What do I have against clowns you ask, aside from the obvious creepy and terrifying nature of those *$&#*&*#! Here, here's what I have against clowns!

http://abritandabit.typepad.com/spotted_dick_and_other_mu/2008/07/we-interrupt-yo.html

OK, now I'm going to go sit in a corner and rock back and forth until the images of the bad mean clowns go away.

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

Oh that's just wonderful, I wanted to end my night by swinging by dear sweet Nikki Crumpet's blog and what do I get?! NIGHTMARES!! OMG! those are the freakiest things ever! I can't even be on the same page with them STARING at me while I type this to you!! That is sooooooo funny and freaking scary at the same time but you always make us laugh! We are lucky to have you dear, sweet miss nikki crumpet!!!:) Thanks for stopping by again on yet another house tour! I feel the same way about your house dear friend. Have a good night - I am going to have to cuddle up to the husband tonight now to get those images out of my head!!! :) p.s. just lol at the last posters comments - I hear ya!! I'll be rocking in that corner too!

The Berry's Patch said...

That first one looks like me in the mornings.

Good grief girl, look at all these comments. How do you keep up?

Saucy Scribe Debora said...

Just when I thought I had my clown-o-phobia licked...LOL

Funny post!

Have a great day.

Shannon said...

Well, I wasn't afraid of clowns before... But now I think I might go hide in the closet for a while ;) Great shots!

The Boss Lady said...

Thanks Nikki...I'm going to go suck my thumb and rock myself to sleep now. Seriously disturbing.

meg said...

Thanks, Nikki dear~ you are going to pitch in on the cost of my therapy, right?
Actually, I don't have a problem with clowns (well, other then that pack of freakos- yikes!) but 2 of my kids are most definitely anti-clown, even at 23 & 25 yr olds :-S

Michelle said...

LOL! How in the world do you come up with your blog topics? To be so clever! :)

I'm sorry, but I just can't jump on the I love clowns category. All characters freaked me out when I was a kid.......even Santa. I wouldn't even take my kids to see Santa because the whole idea of it just made me kind of nervous.

Whoa, I sound like I need some serious therapy!

Shannon said...

After looking at these lovely pictures... how can anyone think clowns are scary? I just don't get it...



Ok, no really... these are some freaky photos! Yowza!




Oh, and jill jill bo bill wins for the BEST comment!

Bridget said...

Well you've scared me off of ever going to McDonald's again, can you do the same for candy stores. i could stand to be askeered of chocolate. What about fried foods, can you do anything with that? You could put Jenny Craig out of business!

Tristan said...

OMG, I just totally started to cry..LOL...scared me to death..maybe I don't wanna come a reader of your blog...LOL..geez, I am so terrified of clowns..I always have been..they just creep me out..UH, now I'm gonna have nightmares,OMG...I can't believe this..and I totally only looked at 2 of them!
