Welcome to another Way-Out Wednesday, kids! I'm taking a slight hiatus from posting too many creepy-ass vintage dolls in a row. I don't want to spoil you. Instead, I'm heading back to an old favorite here in Way-Out land: the circus. And more specifically, the disgusting clown which IS ALWAYS SCARY NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY. They are. If they're not scary-looking, they're angry-looking. And if they're not angry-looking, they're pervy-looking, though I do prefer a perv clown to one that looks ready to suck your soul from your eye sockets.
So please "enjoy" this week's Way-Out Wednesday pick, this Vintage Circus Clown Painting.
"Step right up folks, and thanks for stopping by the Happy Family Fun Time Circus, right here in sunny downtown Compton! I'm Itchy the Clown, your MC for the evening. We have the second to lowest-rated circus around- so you know what that means? You could do slightly worse! My badly-burned hands don't permit me to perform my famous fire-juggling act anymore, but there's still plenty to see! Bring the kids to our petting zoo! Our giraffes have moderate cases of scoliosis, making it even easier fro them to bend down and eat pellets right out of your hand! Word of caution, though: we've had a small outbreak of rabies in the duck department, so they've been bound and gagged with balloon strings, but the kids can still look at them from a safe distance. Enjoy the elephant show, where they've been forced into submission by having their achilles tendons slashed by sword-wielding ballerinas! If fast-paced action and death-defying thrills are your game, then come on in to the acrobat tent! Give it up for our newest members of the family, Svetlana and Bogdana, straight from Russia! They don't let their fused-together bodies from an unfortunate Chernobyl accident get them down! Come on in and enjoy the show!"
