Children's entertainers

Post by PeterMac on 30.06.14 18:07

Am I alone in finding Children's Entertainers over the age of - say - 25, slightly creepy

It is the image of the early middle aged men (almost always !) with their stupid costumes, silly antics,m ridiculous "games" and endless "catch-phrases"
which I find worrying.
Now, then, now, then
Can you see what it is yet

In response to Petermac...

Petermac... No. You are not!

Fortunately you don't know where I live, and nobody on here does, but my relatively new neighbour, a single woman, and a retired ex Methodist minister now in her 70s, once knocked on my door and stood there silently waiting. She was unidentifiable... dressed as a clown (Co-co the clown style with full make up, costume a la Pied Piper and full wig.) Only when she said. 'Ha ha. It is me. I am on my way to a children's party I have organised,' did I realize who it was. Part of that was done to shock me I am sure. I am not at all uneasy about her for the reasons spoken about on this thread... but I did find it slightly sinister, or perhaps, being more charitable, pretty eccentric. She also wears shorts as short as hot pants when gardening... Sparrow-boned, I think she believes she has 'good legs'. :-D

I find it worrying that so many seem to find it acceptable and are quite prepared to let their children sit and watch it.     smilie

No you`re not alone - I`ve always thought they`re creepy and that includes comedians with tickling sticks and ventriloquists dummies and also clowns.

Yeah. Got it. You are right! I am sure she 'means well'. As you don't live in the UK you will likely not listen to The Archers. Sometimes I catch a bit of it on Sunday mornings. She is the Linda Snell of our part of town. Nosey... pushy... odd... is only part of it. 'Here are some potatoes for you from out of my garden. What? Not got any solar panels on your roof yet? Have you bought your green burial plot yet? (Actually we have) etc etc...' Chatelaine (spelling/ sorry) You are right. I am being unkind, but ... but ... but ... Sometimes she really does give me the creeps, but a while ago she was not very well and I don't like to be unkind. She is un-put-offable and is always banging on our door and coming in. My son had only just come round himself. She came in. She got to hold my youngest grand-daughter before I did.

It is the driven persistence of people who won't back off which is similar... nothing else.

I was actually thinking of my own legs at my age now [used to be a stunner and not only because of my legs, but they were the ones attracting most of the attention ....] and had wanted to add, that I do indeed wear [hot]pants when pruning the roses, but nowadays never, ever, with someone around to see them ...  big grin

Getting back on topic - there is a line between healthy and unhealthy in adults who love to work with children.  And I`m not making accusations - just that there is a line and some belong on the not so healthy side.

What a horrible irritating drone. I've never heard of this programme.

The "music" reminds me of a cross between the theme tune of Tales of the Unexpected and tom cats fighting it out.
