Does My Mom Hate Me?

My mother made this for me a few years ago in honor of her daughter who makes people laugh for a living. She strongly disapproves of my career choice - LET IT GO MOM IT'S BEEN 25 YEARS ALREADY - which might explain what's going on in my eyes.

Serial killer? Despot? UNMARRIED DAUGHTER?

  1. If we're voting, I'll have to go with serial killer clown eyes. I do like the turquoise with the yellow though. The outfit pops! :)

    Did she make a ceramic in honor of your sister? If so, what? Inquiring minds want to know.

  3. Yeah, that's pretty much the stuff nightmares are made of. Clowns are evil.

  5. EEK! that is one creepy clown, like, Stephen King's "It" clown scary. i wouldn't be able to keep it. it would be re-gifted or go to Goodwill. i don't mind live clowns, like at the circus and at parties, but i'm frightened of clowns in ceramic, puppet or dummy forms. i have "Poltergeist" and some 80s little-girl's-doll-comes-to-life-and-tries-to-kill-her movie, and "Chuckie" to thank for that. take care.

  6. I already have a serious clown phobia and this just about set me over the edge. I'm going to have nightmares now. I'm sending your mum my therapy bill.

  7. She must hate you. Clowns are evil and from the devil. It is what turns the TV on while you sleep. Please hide all of your knives and anything else it might use as a weapon.

  10. Don't let my boyfriend Steve King see that- it'll be on the cover of his next book. That one will weigh FIFTY pounds.


    It's called the RECTANGULAR PRISM.

  14. It is the little personal touches that make a house a home. Family photos in simple Tiffany silver frames displayed on a baby grand speak volumes about who you are.
    One single gerber daisy in a Lalique vase can have the same rejuvenating effect as a costly arrangement.
    There are many ways to say "welcome" to your guests but displaying a figurine of an emaciated John Wayne Gacy is not one of them.
    I understand that this objet d'art was handcrafted by your mother as a loving tribute to you and your poorly chosen career and as such, carries with it the guilt of the ages.
    No matter how well-intentioned a gift may be, like soiled panties, it should not be out on display.
    May I suggest a minor earthquake mishap as an excuse? Perhaps a commonplace yet curiously selective burglary?
    On the other hand, guests tend to drink up all your boxed wine and invariably demand to use the bathroom to help themselves to your toilet paper as though it grew on trees, so perhaps you should just keep it.
    I wonder if crotchless clown pants will ever catch on?

  15. I wonder if she looked on it as a tribute, an image of how she sees you. (oh, sorry about that if she does).
    Um, you don't dress like that, do you? Or the makeup? Please say no.
    You didn't look like that on the Seinfeld episode I saw. (quite pretty on that one)

  16. Slightly clownsinister. Very funny!

  17. Fuck, that's just nasty. I double dog dare you to hide in a storm drain and make it jump out at people. My mom just makes me spice cake.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The question is, is your mother afraid of clowns? Are you afraid of clowns. Because that might go a long way in explaining what this gift really means. :)

  19. My mom knitted me an afghan cuz she thought I was gay.

  20. Um, well I had something quite irreverent and outrageously witty to say, but frankly, ol' Mickey there above me had me chuckling my ass off. And I forgot.

    Oh yeah, clowns with crotch tears. What up wit dat?

    (That totally wasn't the irreverent and outrageously witty thing, but it's all I got now.)

  21. It's beautiful. you should have it appraised. And insured.

  22. Leave it to Keith to notice the crotch.

    Who invented clowns anyway? Oh, that's right. YOUR MOM!
