Does this song remind anyone else of "Showroom Dummies" by Senor Coconut? --HearingAid

As a former kid, I'm glad I never had a creepy-sounding song like this one on one of my albums! But the disapproval of clown nudity reminds me of an apparent case of self-censorship in the text of the children's book Roarr: Calder's Circus, about Alexander Calder's circus figures of the 1920's. Of Calder's stilt-walker figure, author Maira Kalman writes "He towers above the trapeze and when he spits it rains...". For the line to make poetic or any kind of sense, the word "spits" must have originally been "pees". Ironically, the euphemism is not only inappropriate but ugly.--M. Fudd 20:49, 10 Dec 2005 (EST)

irritating german nudity[edit]

As a german fan of TMBG i find it at least strange that a german accent along with the mentioning of nudity is enough to make a song inappropriate for kids. I must admit, I haven't heard the song by now. In case that "unflinching german accent" means some kind of characteristic nazi style, I sure admit. But nudity? Isn't that a bit victorian? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:52, December 15, 2005

Can someone explain to me how Flansy is affecting ANY sort of German accent in this song, let alone "unflinching"? I don't here any such thing. Still among the creepiest songs ever, though. -CJSF 08:26, 15 October 2012 (EDT)

Well, it was supposed to be for a children's album for kids probably pre-kindergarten, so that makes nudity a bit more off-limits. And I don't personally think that it's the German accent that makes it creepy, but just the echoing of his voice gives it the whole "evil" vibe. Magbatz 22:27, 15 Dec 2005 (EST)

I'd also like to add that a fear of clowns is quite a common phobia, particularly with little kids. So that might add to it. Just a thought. ~Anna Ng hears your words. 13:54, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah but it's not just nudity, it's clown nudity. - extrafacelol

And that's the worst kind. ~Anna Ng hears your words. 13:54, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
This site defines fear of nudity as "nudophobia" and fear of clowns as "coulrophobia." So what we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a potential case of nudocoulrophobia. --MisterMe 16:18, 28 January 2013 (EST)
lol! --Nehushtan (talk) 19:10, 5 September 2019 (EDT)


Does anyone know where I might acquire a copy of this song? As creepy as it apparently is, I really do wanna hear it. ~Anna Ng hears your words. 13:54, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

It's on the Clock Radio. Skip every song until you find it. --ZippZapp 15:53, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Clock Radio…Seems like a bit of a gamble to me. Why doesn't someone who actually has the recording just post it on YouTube??? DidgeGuy (आ ज) 18:08, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
I would call that exploiting Clock Radio. -Apollo (moo) 17:21, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
It's here. --veggieman 21:47, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh My God, it is the creepiest song ever! -Flansfan 15:28, 28 January 2013 (EST)

Kids album?[edit]

I find it a bit hard to believe that they actually intended this to be on No!. It sounds like it was made creepy on purpose. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 22:00, 7 September 2019 (EDT)
