Ventriloquist dummies, clowns and mannequins...

What do you think of them? Are you scared shitless of them like most people or are you like the one person who can stand them? I personally hate clowns and mannequins but I love ventriloquist dummies. They're creepy cool. :la:

I love clowns... if they have original material. The circus that comes to town every year has used the same clown acts every year for the last four or five years. I've lost count. If they have fresh material, they're hilarious, and I have absolutely no idea how people could possibly find these delightful comedic experts to be creepy.

Ventriloquism... well, one of my favorite comedians is Jeff Dunham. Haven't been able to find any other ventriloquists to be entertaining, though.

I've never seen the kinds of mannequin's you're talking about; at least, not outside of cartoons. The only mannequins I know of are the ones that display clothing in the windows of shops at the mall.

Clowns come off as being like... Not quite human, I think. But yeah, those are the kind of mannequins I mean. I hate the more realistic ones.

I can understand how they freak some people out, but I owned one as a kid and practiced a long time with mine, so he seemed more terrifyingly laborious than mystical, heh...

Well.....terrifyingly laborious, as I said. You move your hand just so to make the mouth move, the head move, et cetera, all the while trying not to make a fool of yourself with your voice-throwing skills. I was okay, not great, but the experts do it for decades and I only did it a few years before he began to break.

My icon's name is "Mr. Leery" and is not meant to be scary.
The living doll in DON'T...NO...DON'T doesn't have a name and is meant to be scary.

It's a simple reversal, really. In this case, the "living doll" is the victim, you are the monster!

How did you know my fears? :noes:

I especially hate clowns and manniquins (thanks to It and Silent Hill, respectively!), but like you, Ventriloquist dummies are actually kinda neat, due to their intricate designs.

I don't see how Mannequins are very scary, or clowns. However puppets, especially wooden puppets, creep me out.

Standing near a mannequin is like letting someone stand behind me. It feels like they're going to do something... And as for clowns, I blame the makeup and blatantly faked humour. :|

Ventriloquist dummies are the only ones that drop my pants, and leave me wet... Seriously, just take a look at their eyes, blasted instant death.
