Smile and the World…….Runs!

I don’t know if it’s all this talk of Halloween but I got to thinking about the terror that can be found in a truly evil smile. You know what I mean, the mouth is turned up at the edges but the eyes belong to someone who wants to do unspeakable things to you (and not in a good way!). Therefore, in the spirit of sharing and maybe scaring the crap out of you I thought I’d put together some of my favourites (and by favourites I mean those that, after the first viewing, gave me nightmares for weeks…….

This guy really gave me the willies and yet, when I was looking at stills this morning, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why and then I found this clip……shudders!

The gentlemen

I was a huge fan of Buffy (or, more accurately Angel and Spike) but never found it particularly creepy….until I watched the episode with The Gentlemen. These guys floated along bestowing murderous smiles on all those they encountered. If memory serves Buffy bought them to justice by making their heads explode although I can’t quite remember why…can you?

Fear of a two foot high plastic doll defies all logic but fear of one that’s alive and has a smile like this makes perfect sense!

Heres Johnny

Here’s Johnny! I watched The Shining again fairly recently and was thoroughly bored for the first 45 minutes or so but then the pace picked up, Jack Nicholson got his crazy on and I remembered why it’s such a bloody terrifying film! Handsome though he was, that’s not a smile you’d want to see!

 

So, there you have it, my top picks for ‘completely manic, deranged and likely to cause an unfortunate trouser incident’ smiles. What have I missed?

Let me know, I’d love to hear from you :O)

Just for a Laugh!

Good morning everyone :O) I know that there are a lot of you guys out there in Wordpress World who are not having the best time of it at the moment so I wanted to put something together, just for you, in the hope that it will brighten your day and make you chuckle. It’s so easy to get caught up with the negative things in life that, sometimes, we forget to laugh and yet, when we do, we wonder why we don’t do it more often…..

I love Friends and, the first time I saw this I was giggling about it all day. It’s just an 8 second clip but a perfect piece of slapstick!

The incomparable Billy Connolly telling the story of waking up, at the age of 7, wearing a balaclava that wasn’t there when he went to bed. (Warning: contains bad language……but it’s really bloody funny!)

This is Paul Bronks and he’s the only reason I still have a Twitter account; it’s not so much the pictures or videos that get to me but the captions which will often make me laugh out loud.

Finally, the genius of Eddie Izzard. He has such an amazing sense of the ridiculous and this sketch was, in my opinion, one of his best ever!

There you are, that’s your lot; I hope that something at least raised a smile :O)

If you’ve got the time, please share your favourite comedy moments, I’d love to hear from you
