Dolls and other creepy MOFOs

Long before "Chucky" even thought about becoming a star, people have been disturbed and "creeped out" by dolls. I don't know what it is, but I just realized that dolls have always given me the willies too. My Mother dearly loves them, the ones with the frozen-stiff cold eyes staring off into space with the eyelids that open and close... eeek! They always seem to be watching, and they seem to give me a strange feeling... Maybe i've seen one too many horror movies, but I add this to the list of things that strike me down with the heebie-jeebies!

Come to think of it, there are a few extra creepy things that have been brought to my attention this week. For one, Dwarves and the like (as Barnze points out) are among my list, & so are:
  • Mimes (that goes along with the clowns somewhat)
  • The Burger King guy (Waking up with the King? Don't think so)
  • Trolls (treasure trolls, etc)
  • Stuffed animals (to include taxidermy)
  • Abandoned Old Hospitals or Asylums
  • Dark Basements of very old houses
  • Open closet doors (at night, can't sleep with the closet door open)
  • People speaking through those 'voice boxes' (sorry, I know they had surgery, but the sound still gives me the shivers)
  • Extremely Old People (I'm talking 90+ ones that aged very badly, and I know if i'm lucky, I might be this old one day, but still, and if they have a voice box we're goin down!)
So that's the list of what creeps me out, and I can't think of any others at the moment-i'll be sure to report them if I do. Let me know what creeps you out too. After all it's nearing Halloween/Samhain, and I enjoy the whole month of October, so 'tis the season! God I love Fall...(sigh) So until next time, take a look at these photos below and tell me in all honesty that they're not creepy MOFOs!
And if you've never seen this commercial, view it. You'll see what I mean about this Burger King. Who's the guy that thought this was cool?? He wins an award for Creepiest MOFO:

Oh, ITA! One time I was leafing through a magazine and came across a full-page ad for a lifelike doll that creeped me out so much I pushed the magazine off my lap to the floor.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks the Burger King is creepy!

BTW, after I saw that movie "Magic" in the theater (I was on a date) I couldn't stand ventriloquist's dummies anymore, not that I particularly liked them before.

I have run across a lot of people that are creeped out by that Burger King freak. Yes, I forgot to mention the Ventriloquist dummies, but they go in the 'creepy dolls' category-Can't stand them!!

What's with that?? I know Twins share a supposed connection but when you get that age, isn't it a bit much?? I'm sure it's cute when you're a kid. lol
