To be honest, it was kind of creepy. It took me a while, but I figured out why. Frosty looks just like serial killer John Wayne Gacy probably would have looked had he dressed up like a snowman rather than a clown. First, Gacy, in his full clown get up:
And now, Frosty.
See what I mean? It was disturbing, to say the least.
Come on kids! Let's thumpity-thump-thump our way over to my house! There's a crawl space that you just GOTTA see.
All kidding aside, Gacy is such an irredeemable person for all the things that he did. But serial killers have always fascinated me. I think I used to have a paperback about the murders that I think I picked up at a library book sale shortly after his execution in 1994.
And he is also the subject of a Sufjan Stevens song - probably his oddest choice of subject matter for a song, and for him, that's really saying something.
