WTF Wednesday - Clown Head Coasters, Pan, Supine Dog

Welcome back to WTF Wednesday - the day for celebrating todos things locos!

This first one is kind of clever. Behold a holiday craft for the Pinterest crowd:

Stack up 5 flower pots and paint them like a nutcracker. 


Next is a matted wall hanging ready to frame. With a penny glued on. 

This is not enough. You should know more than this about money. Keep trying to learn. Where would one hang such a piece of art?

Next we have a set of 6 fluorescent orange and white crocheted drink coasters. 

Those are WTF enough on their own, but when stored to form a turtleneck on a creepy clown face topped dowel...WTF!  You take off the clown head to remove the coasters. (bonus cute little old lady shopping in the background). 

You may have seen this if you follow my Instagram, but here is a Grecian urn from around 500 BC on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. 

I thought I liked dogs, this guy REALLY likes dogs. #odeonagrecianurn #metmuseum #500bc

This man LOVES dogs. 

(I am aware this is Pan the Greek god of the "wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music, and companion of the nymphs." I've read and loved Jitterbug Perfume! And Ode on a Grecian Urn!) 

Moving on to a personal bit of WTF-ery:

It's Pouncey. On the bed. Sleeping on his back. Smiling. 

WTF, dog!?

Last but not least, here is what happens when you put boot laces in shoes.

It's a macrame butterfly!

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

I have a real fear of clowns. Not the typical I just don't like clowns fear...the grab your shit an run type of fear. My best friend still talks about the time I threatened to assault a clown who wouldn't leave me alone in a store at Christmas. I asked the clown to leave, she didn't. She continued to hover around me.

Wednesdays aren't Wednesdays anymore without a good WTF or two.

@Anon - thank you for your support!

@kidD - JJ vs. the Christmas Clown - would be a great children's book! what age was this? that clown needed to recognize. awful!

jack handey: "To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad."
