Heebie Jeebies

Well it’s old news now, but the British have published a study that has shown that clowns are indeed creepy. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22685723?gt1=10755
The study got me a thinking. Party clowns are hot commodity for children’s birthdays. Are there other ideas that would make children just as nervous and/or afraid and if so…I would like to start a new business.

“Heebie Jeebies…uncomfortable and frustrating parties"…not just for kids.

Kids will delight in the Marcel Marceau theme parties. Who doesn't love having Happy Birthday sung by mimes with silent intensity. Mark’s son hates loud noises and losing at anything. So perhaps a Firecrackers and Cribbage would be a great party theme. My disconcerting party would involve actors, smooth jazz, and drum circles. Dennis recommends a party of attractive, single, passive aggressive, insecure women. I think it already exists…it’s called Sammamish. "Have you heard the good news" is a bachelor party where a knock at the door by a stripper is replaced by one distributing religious materials.

The market may already be saturated with creepy. Have you heard of cuddle parties? http://www.cuddleparty.com/
