I know many of you are reluctant to join in the fun that will be the It-along, mainly because of this:
However, you shouldn’t let a little bit of coulrophobia (yes, there is a word for fear of clowns) stop you, because we are going to have one hell of a kick-ass good time. Here are just a few of the reasons why…
Princess Clown Nose (someone’s been reading Anna K and wanted her very own title) and Fizzybeverage (that’s moi, in case you forgot where you are) are hosting. With names like that, how could you possibly go wrong?? And if you join us, I could be persuaded to come up with a ridiculous name for you, too! I promise I won’t call you Bozo.
Speaking of noses…the Princess has ‘em! The first ten peeps to pledge their undying devotion (or you know, just sign up to read the damn book), will get their very own clown nose (because really, who wants to share? That would be icky)! Thanks to Care (who, by the way has already started! (overachiever)), I already have mine. I promise there will be pictures. Later.
There will be plenty of opportunities to laugh your ass off (did I not just mention the forthcoming pictures?). Heck, we haven’t even started reading yet and I’ve already been entertained by 1) the Emergency Clown Nose waiting on my doorstep 2) the fact that Care, the Princess and I were all thinking about clown noses at the same time in different states and 3) Natalie‘s hysterical comment about needing a new nose. Oh…and 4) Trish‘s willingness to post a picture of her shock and dismay on twitter that we were actually serious about reading this book (I would steal and post it, but that was over a week ago, and good lord, do you know how often that woman tweets!?!). Goofiness abounds.
John Wayne Gacy is DEAD, people. Nothing to fear there.
You know you want a reason to buy a pair a pair of clown shoes. I mean, look at all that toe space! Your feet would be sooooo happy.
Personally though, I’ve got my eye on a pair of these babies:
Are they not the coolest things ever?? Well, besides clown noses, of course.
So. Have I convinced you yet?? The official It-along won’t start ’til September but you’ve got plenty of time to think about it (and I’ve got lots of time to talk you into it!). If you’re ready to commit, don’t forget to pop on over to the Princess’s blog for a chance to get your very own clown nose! Oh come on, you know you want one.
