This Gallery Of Vintage Clowns Proves They’ve Always Been Scary

This Gallery Of Vintage Clowns Proves They’ve Always Been Scary - Awkward Galleries

First off, if you suffer from coulrophobia*, this gallery is definitely not for you.

Children’s entertainment today is usually cute, friendly, cheerful, and above all an enjoyable experience everyone. Turns out, that’s something of a new concept. As anyone who’s checked out a book of 19th century fairy tales will tell you, vintage children’s entertainment used to be WAY scarier, and clowns are no exception. Our friends at Flashbak, who are clearly much braver than we are, have compiled this gallery of creepy clowns from days of old. Far from the goofy birthday party entertainers we know today, these “clowns” look like they just stepped out of your nightmares. It’s a miracle any of the kids in these photos grew up to be functioning adults.

 

*Fear of clowns, and not fear of Full House star Dave Coulier. (That gallery is coming next week.)

Dad’s “Gift”

Dad’s “Gift” - Birthdays

“This is my beloved father-in-law, George, who passed away in 2015.  When searching for pictures to post at his funeral, we stumbled upon this one.  It didn’t make the cut, and you can see why from looking at it.  George had a great sense of humor and 7 kids to boot, so the picture fits him perfectly!”

15+ Hilarious Texts From Grandparents - Awkward Galleries

Text messaging is just a funny medium, period. When everybody is dashing off messages as quick as possible, you’re going to wind up with some hilarious misunderstandings–and that’s when people aren’t even trying to be funny. We’ve featured funny texts between family members before, and today we’ve got them from the elder generation. From autocorrect fails to accidental overshares to intentional overshares to sick burns, we love these grandparents and want to hang out with them all.
