And now even more people need therapy

Once upon a time there was a clown called Snuckles who was tired of all the people with clown phobias.

So he decided to win everyone over by dropping treats from an airplane.

That was the day he learned how 2000 jawbreakers can knock quite a few people unconscious when dropped from 2000 feet up.

Haha! This reminded me of the classic WKRP episode where they decided to drop turkeys out of a plane for some sort of promotional stunt.

"As God as my witness, i thought turkeys could fly!"

Just: YES! I remember that too. I was thinking of it as I was typing this post. Funny!

smiles....great memory at WKRP...yowch!

Janna said...

Brian: I went to youtube a moment ago to see if they had videos of the WKRP turkey episode. I found an extra-short one here. :)

You kidding? Dropped from an airplane they could kill people.

Lions, and tigers, and bears I completely understand...

Memorable, mile- and ouch-reaction story. Great stuff.

Jerry said...

Watched the clip of WKRP...classic. the gumballs would definately win over the clownophobs.

Ha, ha, add one more reason to have a clown phobia. Love it.

I'm only afraid of clowns after they've been elected to public office. You always make me laff, this 55 included.

Mama Zen said...

Ouch!

kkrige said...

Hilarious! I love it. Thanks for the guffaws. :)

Monkey Man said...

I wonder if they break or bounce when they hit.

Janna said...

G-Man: I have a Speedy Rewards card, though I never use it... and I have a Kroger card. Sadly, there is no hundred dollar bill between them. :(

Stranger: Thanks for visiting! :)

Alice: Go on and try it, just to be sure.

moondustwriter: It seems odd to me too!

Steve: Yay! :) "Ouch" was the reaction I was going for. :)

Jerry: I think my favorite WKRP guy was Les Nessman. :)

nonamedufus: Do people with clown phobias avoid McDonalds when Ronald McDonald is there?

hedgewitch: LOL! Yes, politics can be like a circus sometimes. :)

MamaZen: Indeed!

kkrige: I prefer guffaws AND snorts, but I'll take what I can get.

MonkeyMan: For some reason I'm guessing they bounce. Hmmmm. We really should run an experiment.

!! My 18 year old son is "afraid" of clowns. This was funny - great 55.

izzy said...

Cute and funny-thanks!

Mona said...

LOL! That is 'painfully funny'!

Janna said...

Margaret: Maybe he had an unfortunate jawbreaker experience as a child!

izzy: Thanks for visiting!

Mona: Poor Snuckles! :o
