Lisa thinks: I'm with you on that. . . not sure exactly what this guy is, but I can guarantee "evil" comes to mind. Is he like the evil death-rabbit/lamb come to bring you flowers while you are sick. I don't think he'd serve the purpose of "cheering up". Unless you're a nut-job!

Lisa thinks: That great dude at the store does need to get a lot of credit here for letting you wander back there and take this picture. . . I knew he would help us on our quest the minute I saw his crazy-haired ass come walking out the back. Could these gals be the adult version of the classic Barbie head that was made for little girls to style their hair? Cuz, if so, I don't want one ;) I was also noticing that the one on the right seems to have signs of possible strangulation on her neck. . . yeah, I watch too much NCIS.

Kim says: You just know this was a present for someone. Someone was wandering around a store trying to find someone a present and saw this and thought "Thank God - I KNOW he doesn't have one of these!!" (I think we all know why he didn't have one of these...)

Ok, so I get that the this poor guy is responsible for holding all of the condiments, but what about his partner? What the hell does he do? Unfortunately you can’t see it well by the photos, but his sides were peppered with holes. If anyone knows the purpose of this, please enlighten us because we haven’t figured it out and just think he’s letting his "well endowed” friend do all the work.
Kim says: Dude what in the hell is this?! I'm guessing a pair of salt and pepper shakers and maybe oil and vinegar? Can you imagine directing a guest to the salt by saying "Just grab the chicken's left ball??"
Lisa thinks: Maybe the one that is peppered with holes is for holding the holy water you might want to sprinkle on your guests after forcing them to shake salt and pepper out of a rooster's balls;)

Lisa thinks: This must be the doll you give your little daughter to promote wild nights of fun out on the town. I can hear it now, "If you have had a successful night out on the town you will look like this on your walk-of-shame home the next morning. Now go play while Mommy mixes another Gin & Vodka, darling."
Kim says - It looks like she had such a wild night that she broke her leg too! Doesn't that look like a cast? (it DOES!! -C)

Lisa thinks: With those hands she should be called "The Belle from Hell". Yikes!
Kim says - What is WITH those hands?! It's like someone put her too close to the oven and then baked a turkey - they melted!

Lisa thinks: Hey- some people can't afford a new bottle of White Rain shampoo. . . it does cost almost a dollar, I think. Sheesh. . .

Granted, he’s not really all that bad, but a) it was the only St. Patty’s day picture we had and b) his eyes appear to be looking in different directions. Therefore he has obviously been stuffing his pipe with 4 leaf clovers. (Is that a sprig of clover behind his ear??)
nuff said. Hope you all have a luck filled day and consume much green beer (if you’re into that, of course)

Kim says: What exactly do you do with this? Is it an ornament? Does everyone have these kitschy bears on their Christmas Trees and I just missed that boat?

Carmen thinks: Even if this hasn't been noticeably used, the fact that it is here at all and in an unsealed package is nasty!

Lisa thinks: He could be watching whatever the scared twins are watching. . . but having a slightly different reaction to it. Possessed by the devil sounds about right. . . I think he's wearing eyeliner, too. (and lipstick - C)
Kim says: What jumps out at me is how dead his eyes look. They used remarkable detail to get his eyes to look so disturbing... (remarkable details and emo makeup. -C)

Kim says: This is just another warning to really look closely before actually purchasing something at a thrift store! I mean, I've gotten some great bargains, but this has issues!!

Lisa thinks: That's one HELLUVA trunk!! Poor dude!
Kim says: That's not a trunk - it's a weapon of mass destruction!!

Welcome to the display of (creepy) dolls:
I guess despite the flamboyant hat, she looks as
And at the other end of the table, we have the rest of the display, or Exhibit 2:
alrighty then, so we have another flamboyant hat (apparently a popular style), a bad hair helmet and a OH MY GOD! A DISEMBODIED HEAD!
I swear it’s looking right at me. And you wonder why I find these things a little unnerving.

Lisa thinks: Maybe they were Elvis' bowling shoes. . . they sort of have that look to them!
Kim says: What is it about shoes these days? First the sasquatch shoes and now these... I can't wait to see what we find next!!!

Carmen's take: I'm thinking the combination of the bear assuming some twisted gymnastics kama sutra position while draped in what appears to be a cable knit snuggie and putting a creepy doll in a half-nelson equals a whole lot of "hell no!"

Lisa thinks: At least it's still in the box. That raises the hopes of whatever sucker buys it that maybe, just maybe, it was never peed in (or that whoever peed in it is very cleanly and organized- I mean, they DID keep the box, after all).

I know, some people really dig clowns. My sister in law is one of those people. I however, am certainly not. Clowns freak me out. Maybe it’s because of scary clown movies, or a bad Bozo nightmare I’ve blocked from my consciousness, but for whatever reason, clowns fall into my “not only no, but HELL NO” category.
So, we’re traipsing through a classy little thrift store the other day and come upon a whole display of clowns. Being the stuff that nightmares of made of, and we are, after all, Thrift Store HORROR!, I snapped a few pics. Here we see a creepy but rather unassuming clown.
Our next specimen raises the creepy quotient a bit. He has that mischievous look in his eye.
And then of course we have a small group of clowns that at first glance seem to be innocently having a conversation with a pair of cookie monster slippers.
But what is that on the right? WTF? Lets take a closer look--
umm, so, yeah…. it appears that Clowny McPervert here is getting all up in some other clown’s business. Seriously? Someone needs to rearrange this display.
