A Frightening Sight



This year I'm seeing more extensive Halloween decorations than in the past.  Wouldn't you think this scary guy would cause visitors to the Pond House restaurant in Elizabeth Park to lose their appetites?  A questionable business plan!

At the Pond House? What were they thinking?

Halloween?

Janet said...

A bit over the top!

I really don't understand this fascination with the macabre. Halloween has got to be one of the most stupid of our "holidays." But it ain't gonna change anytime soon 'cause too many people make too much money from its craziness!

Lois said...

I agree! Look at those awful teeth.

Sharon said...

I totally agree. I think this would totally ruin my appetite. Heck, I think I'm skipping breakfast today.

Randy said...

That could really scare a kid, I love it!

Sylvia K said...

Scary!! Definitely a questionable business plan in my eyes!! I'll pass on breakfast this morning, too!! Guess it could be helpful for dieting purposes???? What a weird world we do live in!!! Have a great day anyway, Jack!!

Lois Evensen said...

Yuck!

Very mischievous but doesn't quite say "Open the doors and step into an oasis of warmth, music, fragrant aromas"

Ray said...

Yeah, maybe just a little too much!

Ouch! This certainly caught my attention, Jack. What with this one and the photo yesterday...interesting things are happening in Hartford :).

That is way over the top.

Matter of fact sickening.

I would not have the stomach to even take a pix of it.

I prefer the customs surrounding los dias de las muertas.

RedPat said...

That is one scary dude!

Halcyon said...

This certainly wouldn't attract me to a restaurant. TOo realistic. :S

How odd that we have taken Irish traditions and converted it into the macabre. Never thought torture with barbed wire mixed well with good food.

Bob Crowe said...

It's horrifying to me. I don't find anything amusing in this stuff. When we were in the Seattle Art Museum last weekend there was a video of a nude woman rolling her hips with a hula hoop made of barbed wire. Watching was a brief, unhappy experience. This photo made me think of it.

Great photograph, though.

Makes me wonder what is on the menu!

That is strange ornament, even for Halloween. It tells more about its owner that about the festivity, I'll say.

VP said...

This is awful...

JM said...

Really powerful! :-)

Cheri said...

This is not cool!

I do not care for the gore. I really don't like it when I take my daughter trick or treating and see adults trying to scare little kids out of their wits 'all in good fun.'

Gunn said...

This should come with a warning!!!
I would NOT have visited the restaurant!!
