Should I infict the clown cover upon you another time? Yes, I think I shall:
She's got pigtails and a considering expression on her face.
He's, well, if you have a clown phobia, he's the most terrifying ever. If you don't have a clown phobia, he's still kind of terrifying.
So who wins the caption that cover HORROR EDITION?
Honorable Mention goes to:
Maureen: “I think when you put “Every Woman's Fantasy” on your internet profile, Mr. Pennywise you were slightly misleading.”
Flo_Over for an entire rewrite of “Send in the Clowns.” *applause*
Jules: “Vagina. It's Not a Clown Car.”
MeghanPA: “There's still room in the backseat of the VW with me and the boys, all 16 of us…”
AztecLady1: “Wanna make balloon shapes with me?”
Jason: “How about “Pancake Makeup and Sausage Gravy”?”
Ciar Cullen: “He was…The most interesting man in the world. It was such a tragedy that Sally was blind and couldn't appreciate all he had to offer her.”
Mary Stella: “A little song, a little dance, a little Chuckles in your pants.”
Arloa: (Imagine soulful Ryan Gosling here) “Hey girl, sorry about this costume, but it's the only way we can be together in public without my being mobbed. Your skin is so soft.”
LauraN: “Did Sarah have the courage, the faith, the . . . humor to trust her heart to a wereclown?” (Thanks for creeping me out, there, LauraN. shudder Wereclowns.)
And the Cover Captioning Runners Up are:
KarenF: “No. I said I wanted to be a cover model FOR Harlequin.”
Hannah: “I said, “Why don't you try going down,” not “Why don't you try going clown!””
and Oaxavamama: “Jane knew she shouldn't have made that last wish while still nursing her head cold. What she'd really said was, “I want someone to go down on me.”
Emily A: “When Katniss saw the District 2 contestants, she knew by their clothes she could take 'em.”
Winner, for making me snort-laugh:
Jennifer, for “Fortunately, Snowqueens Icedragon's fanfic regarding John Wayne Gacy was not as popular.”
