Halloween fun

Post  cyfrifia on Wed Oct 12, 2016 5:56 pm

What to do for halloween? One idea is to dress up as a scary clown, with an axe in one hand and a knife in the other, go to the ScareFest, get on the Smiler ride and hang upside down for an hour or two from your semi-amputated legs, making strange gurgling sounds and dripping blood on the firemen trying to rescue you. Another option is apple-bobbing.

We should return properly to bonfire night and Guy Fawkes and leave the fantasy world of commercial Americanism to the clowns in America. All Hallows Eve is and always was a religious celebration laying down deference to the Gods and to those who believed, a very serious occasion not some frivolous clowning affair for commercial purpose. Halloween, as today portrayed, is meaningless.Evil or Very Mad

The 'rules' of this americanised halloween are not yet clear. With the trend for armed killer clowns, it seems quite possible there will be injuries, one or two minor ones reported already.

Armed killer clowns trying to steal a baby.?!?

How are the public supposed to respond to knife-wielding maniacs? For example, if you were strolling along and came across a group of knife-wielding clowns trying to steal a baby, with the family screaming for help, would it be appropriate to throw a brick at a clown? Or would that be frowned upon?

You cannot take the law into your own hands. The situation as you describe could be something completely different from that which is actually taking place. You call 999 and hope that somebody answers and does something. As a witness you then go into hiding.Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Official advice for anyone attacked by a group of knife-wielding killer clowns, is to go for the juggler.

Police forces offer either no advice, or to ignore killer clowns unless there is clear danger. Ignoring isn't always a good idea. Those who set out to get a reaction from people may increase the aggravation if ignored.
Halloween has become a nuisance. As a commercial fiesta to sell plastic vampire teeth, it should be for children. Masked adults waving various weapons, real or fake, isn't everyones idea of fun.
A Swedish man is in the news for punching a clown who frightened his granny. Good for him, grannies are better than killer clowns.
The question that is puzzling people about 'killer clowns' is, what do they want? Perhaps the answer is - a custard pie.

They are people with a misguided sense of tom-foolery. It's one thing to openly portray as on a stage, quite another to surprise and thus intimidate - as is the intention. To attempt to amuse is fine. To attempt to terrify quite another. It's a criminal offence and should be treated as such. I regularly booked stage acts (vampire and werewolf) during my younger days to 'entertain' silly young females. Not one of those artists would have dreamt to utilise their costumes off-stage to frighten or upset anyone. There's a big difference. Idiots all.Mad Mad Mad Mad

As halloween crawls painfully closer, leaving a trail of blood and other body fluids, it seems that we are lumbered with it. Would it be possible to make a rule that halloween is for children only, and any adults dressing up and threatening people with knives, axes or vampire teeth etc are to be immediately sectioned under the mental health act.

No being the quick answer to that one.

Big business has its claws into it and will not let go willingly. It's not in the interests of the majority for the All Souls Party, commercialised and corrupted as it is, to be banned or have any part thereof messed about with. Sorry - but it's a non-starter. What makes money - endures. Wink Wink Wink Wink

Yes. Amusing. But nothing whatsoever to do with All Souls Eve. Excuse for a party - no problem. But when did anyone require an excuse for that? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

The trouble is that today the fun-seeking is a continuous affair from one 'binge' to the next. It reduces the expectations and resulting amusement to a point where it all becomes a 'bit old hat'. One supposes that it is a sign of the times and that as such one must grudgingly participate in order not to be out of place. Or am I just getting very old -?

This years halloween didn't seem too bad. It seems to divide the population about 50-50, those who enjoy it and those who don't. That's ok as long as one lot don't try impose their idea on the other.
The music industry seems to strangely miss out on the halloween market, the last decent halloween record was the monster mash in 1962.

Yes. I remember buying it. Bobby Picket and the Crypt Kicker Thighs if my memory serves me well. I can still sing it and all the words - but you wouldn't want to hear that - unless of course it was outside your back door on Halloween.Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
