Clowning around

 

In honour of the ‘killer clown’ craze currently sweeping across the US, UK and Ireland. Hundreds of incidents have been reported of people in clown masks and costumes scaring and even chasing victims, while armed with machetes and chainsaws. The craze, which began picking up just before Hallowe’en is said to have been inspired by the remake of the 1980s clown horror film It, coming out soon. I haven’t seen any clowns yet but if any want to play with me, I’ve got a boot in the face that will permanently make them look like a clown…

Alien – the office remake

That infamous scene when the Alien encounters a grimacing Ripley is recreated on an office petty cash budget. The bloodier scenes were made with ketchup bought from the Sainsbury’s across the road.

Spider in the sink

Last night, while going to the kitchen sink to fill the kettle for some tea, I endured one of the biggest frights of my entire life. A huge hairy house spider resting in that very sink. As a qualified arachnophobe I was rooted to the spot. It took my short housemate to obliterate the poor mite (!) with a paper towel and fling it in the bin. It is currently mating season for these monstrous arachnids, with males entering British homes looking for food, shelter and a significant other. Good times.
