6. Fairy tales
Yep, these fractured bedtime stories are even Grimmer than the originals (*ducking tomatoes, again*). Then there are unicorns, which werenâ€™t ruined per se, but I know Iâ€™ll never look at them the same way again!
7. Colored contacts
I think colored contacts look a little spooky to begin with, but as a Supernatural fan, I now find them extra creepy: if demons can have black, red, yellow, or white eyes, why not blue or green? Being able to see the pupils doesnâ€™t reassure me. You can see the red-eyed crossroad demonâ€™s pupils too.
8. The Tooth Fairy
Open wide and say â€œahhhhâ€ . . .
When I lost my teeth, Iâ€™d place them under the pillow hoping to find a quarter in the morning like all the other kids. Apparently I was ok with some freak coming into my room in the dead of night. But there was never anything there. See, my parents are first generation immigrantsâ€”they had no idea they were supposed to play tooth fairy! As it turns out, I should be grateful. Thirty-two quarters will not cover the lifetime of therapy bills that poor dad will need after his encounter with Jesseâ€™s version of the Tooth Fairy.
Itâ€™s too bad we didnâ€™t get to meet Jesseâ€™s parents--sounds like his dad had a pretty perverse sense of humor! Or he just came up with a creative way to hang on to his pocket change.
â€œClowns?? What theâ€”â€ Oh, Ash, donâ€™t act so surprised. Didnâ€™t you ever see â€œItâ€? Pennywise ensured the ruin of clowns for an entire generation; the folks at Supernatural are just doing their part to increase the prevalence of traumatic coulrophobia in the population. Bonus points to Jas for teaching us the word of the day!
