Blast from the Past

21 Mar

Shivers – Just look at that thing – and I say that loosely.  

20140321-084504.jpgI told you a couple of months ago that mom has been cleaning up some old boxes from her and dad’s childhood.  Well, this is another ‘toy’ from mom’s past.  Toy – snorts.  I think this is why me and mom think clowns are evil.  Look at that thing.  How in the world do you ‘play’ with such a thing and not cringe when you see clowns?

Can you just imagine that evil clown hiding in the box.  You hear the music going and going and then all of a sudden “POP” goes the clown.  Give this little pig a break.  I’m going to say it.  I would just drizzle right there and then!  I think the house would be flooded.

Did you have one of these things during your childhood?  Admit it, go ahead.  And  how do you feel about clowns now?

That’s right.  I thought so.  You’re welcome.

    Oh I don’t hope it is the same Mr. Stephen King once had :o) Mom has this Coulrophobia, she never had such a guy, she only has my dad :o)

      Snorts – dad that goes ‘pop the weasel’… too funny. I’ll have to mention that to my pop tonight to see if he knows the motions. Maybe while I’m at it, I’ll destroy this toy from mom’s past. XOXO – Bacon

        Brother I would wear a garlic-necklace tonight and I would make a pop-corn circle around my bed ( the protective effect is zero, but you will hear if someone approximates). I suggest the lightsaber of Luke Skywalker to destroy it :o)

        Advice well taken. I need to do something. Shakes piggy head. Such a shame that it survived all of those years in mom’s kiddy box to ‘accidentally’ end up destroyed in the safety confines of the waste receptacle near the curb. tsk tsk – XOXO – Bacon

    Nope we don’t have one of those thank God as we think they are well creepy. As you can gather we don’t like clowns only clowning around LOL. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

      Oh Molly – I think I love you. I think those clowns are hideous! They are so scary. I can’t stand them. I think this one might have an accident. Sad huh? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Gah! I hope that monster doesn’t give Mom any ideas. She has already brought home a mechanical hamster in a ball that had me cowering behind the chair for weeks.

    Love and licks,

      Oh dear piggy heaven. I do hope mom doesn’t get any ideas about a hamster in a ball here. Shakes head – eeww. XOXO – Bacon

    It is kinda scary – you know clowns never bothered Mom until she watched the movie “IT” ever since then she don’t clowns anymore …and that looks like an IT

    • PigLove

      03/21/2014 at 2:57 pm

      Shivers. You are so right my friends. I think it is IT. Bbrr – I gotta get rid of that thing. Anyone want a free scary clowny pop goes the weasel thingy? Slightly used and shredded? XOXO – bacon

    Bacon, that little “blast from the past” is scary! Don’t ever watch “Chucky”!

    • PigLove

      03/21/2014 at 3:56 pm

      oh-uh… what’s a chucky? I must research this. And it’s scarier than that pop up thingy in the box? WOW – it must be bad. XOXO – Bacon

        03/21/2014 at 3:58 pm

        Ask your mom. She will know that scary movie. But don’t watch it, Bacon!!!!

    Wow, does that bring back memories! I had a jack-in-the-box when I was little, but my partner Sara is terrified of clowns. LOVE seeing this photo, Bacon.

    Snorts from Ecuador,

      03/22/2014 at 12:06 pm

      Thank you my friend. I’m afraid me and mommy are with Sara on this one. This toy scares the crap out of us! I don’t know why mommy saved it all these years. It does explain our fear of clowns those. XOXO – Bacon

    Hello Bacon…I shuddered looking at he photo…I DID have a Jack-In-The-Box & I adored it then…I was all right with clowns til I read “IT” by Stephen King when I was in my early 30’s. Had a terrible Flu & spent 3 days in bed with Mingflower (cat b4 NB). I slept & read for 72 hours straight. Fevered on top of that….so once the fever broke & I finished the book I was utterly terrified of clowns & now shudder if I even see a picture of one! Stephen King is to blame for this clown aversion… I wonder where my Jack-In-The-Box is??? 😉
    Love Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue (who let me reply for once) (she is my little clown….)

      Shivers. We saw this It movie on television. No thank you. I’m telling you. That’s why me and mom hate clowns. They are evil. XOXO – Bacon

      It really is. Again, I don’t know why mom kept this. It’s so scary looking. XOXO – Bacon

    Mummy used to like clowns until she read IT and now they freak her out!

    Oh, Bacon! That thing is just monstrous, I’ve never seen one quite like that but can only imagine how horrifying it is ‘in the flesh’. It’s no wonder so many of us have trouble with clowns at an older age if these were ‘toys’! *shudder*

      I feel you my friends. It is awful. It’s watching me when I walk through the living room. Garbage pick up is tomorrow. It may accidentally end up in the can. Accidentally of course. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    • PigLove

      03/24/2014 at 10:02 am

      Little bit? Really? That thing is scary beyond freaky. I *almost* had it out of the front door but mom saw me. That thing is insanely scary. It needs to be taken care of. XOXO – Bacon
