The Fun House

We were in Seattle the other month and right across from the Space Needle is this nightclub called “The Fun House”. I had to take a picture…


I don’t know about you, but that creepy clown head looming over the front door didn’t look like fun to me! How do they even attract customers with that scary thing?

Well, when we went back to Seattle, the clown head was gone! Poof! Either somebody stole it…or…it’s on the loose. I’ll leave you to ponder that one…

Hmm looks like the huge clown face we have outside a fun park here called 'Luna Park' you walk through it's mouth. Scary shit.

Beth said...

It better not be on its way here - that clown head is nightmare material.

Tom said...

disembodied clown heads with little hats don't scare me! i mean, how long does it take a clown head to roll across the country?

Subby said...

That would look more in place at a house of horror, wot? Unfortunately, ours is no longer...or maybe that's a good thing?

Cheryl said...

What an unlovely sight. Shudder.

sharonheg said...

Fun house my @$$. The whole building looks not fun, LOL! The clown is (was?) just the icing on the cake.

The Incredible Woody said...

Now I'll never sleep again...

Roy said...

Pennywise lives!

Anne said...

darn.
now i'll have to cross that place off my list.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I hope the blasted think doesn't have a passport!

Monkey Man said...

Gone? That scary clown head was a fixture for years. Can't believe the Fun House was decapitated. What a world. What a world.

Roy Scribner said...

Return the head, VE!

"We all float down here."

Mrsupole said...

And that is why I am scared of clowns, well except Bozo the Clown. The Burger King, "King" Clown, is scary. I would run from him if I saw him. Hey maybe that would be a good way to get some exercise.

God bless.

You may remember that I wrote on my blog of my "fear and fascination" with clowns. I want to think the clown head has been locked away, never to be seen again. If it is on the loose, don't send it my way!

ReformingGeek said...

I'm convinced that thing is hiding under my bed.

VE said...

Baino – Not me! No way…ok, I’ll send the gnomes in first…

beth – You might be in luck…it’s so difficult to get through the border patrol these days…

Tom – I think it took a first class one way flight to your destination! (oh…and I wouldn’t make fun of it’s hat if I were you)…

Subby – There just aren’t a lot of house of horrors any more. They only do the makeshift ones at Halloween…

Cheryl – Be afraid…be very afraid…

Sharonheg – That’s exactly what I thought when we stumbled onto it the first time…

Incredible woody – Look at the bright side though…no sleep means you can blog so much more!

Roy – That’s not a good thing, Roy!

Anne – You just missed it too…perhaps they’re making a creepier one…

Perpetual chocoholic – Aren’t all clowns from France?

Monkey man – I was in shock too…I couldn’t believe it was gone. It was pretty damn big to be stolen!

Roy – Shhhh…you’ll ruin my anonymous Christmas present to my old boss…

Dennis – I like ice cream floats…

Mrsupole – Bozo was ok…as long as he was on TV or in a book that is…

m.Bug – We all want to think the clown head is locked away forever. Oh, and two F’s don’t make a right…oh wait…that’s three lefts make a right…never mind.

Reforminggeek – Ha! You must have one TALL bed!

jobless Dave said...

that would make a huge, terrifying bobble head :(

Jaime said...

you wouldn't be able to pay me enough to go into that place! no creepy clown head bars for me!

teeni said...

OMG!!! I HATE clowns! I have posted about it previously and I hate the thought that that thing in your photo is out there on the loose somewhere. Please keep us apprised of this situation, will you? I'm going now to check that all my doors and windows are locked (again). Yikes. 8-0

Megan said...

I must steal that and send it to another blogger pal of mine. He habitually posts creepy clown stuff. I will let him know where I got it, of course.

BTW I was never more disappointed in my life at the way that story turned out - what? A big spider? What happened to super scary clown?!? Stupid!

CatLadyLarew said...

I don't know which is scarier... that clown head or the fact that somebody took it!

Elizabeth said...

What goes on in "The Fun House"?

Janna said...

I kinda like it, in a weird bizarre "where's-my-medication" sort of way.

Jacki said...

Freaky! And I bet those that patronize such places are just as freaky!

Now I am going to be looking over my shoulder for the rest of the day...thanks!

Always Home and Uncool said...

Truth be told: I'm carrying it around in my pants.

lime said...

that is seriously disturbing and whoever removed it did the community a favor

The Silver Fox said...

I'm making sure my door's locked tonight!

VE said...

Jobless dave – Ha! The ULTIMATE bobble head…for that obsessed collector that has everything else. So THAT’S where it went…

Jaime – A person has to draw their line. Your line is drawn!

Teeni – I will have the gnomes set up a 24hr surveillance team. Now that “24” is cancelled, they’ve got nothing better to do…

Megan – One of the few letdowns in his novels…I agree. It’s about where I stopped reading him, too…

Catladylarew – That’s what disturbed me…you has the balls to go up there and take that down?

Elizabeth – Nobody knows…nobody comes out…muh ha ha….

Janna – I suggest more medication…

Jacki – I’ll bet their zombies…

Always home and uncool – Wow…you’ve got some big pants! Apparently you don’t wear skinny jeans…

Lime – I’m disturbed about the person that removed it now. I think they’ve created a partnership of evil…

Silver fox – Don’t worry…that map to your house that was found at the scene was probably a coincidence…

aladdinsane12 said...

ugh, it seems like a nightclub that you'd see in a horror movie. all the people inside would be wearing masks and there'd be a smoke machine pumping out smoke and then somebody would be killed and nobody would notice...

VE said...

aladdinsane12 - I think I accidentally went into that place in Philadelphia once...
