Custard pie in the oubliette
A little later, The Boy came over, and while we were talking, I heard a bell ring.
"Did you hear that?" I asked.
"Yeah," said The Boy. "Sounded like a bicycle bell."
"Or a clown bell," I said. "I heard something earlier that sounded like a clown horn. I think it's downstairs."
The Boy looked at me. "Are you saying you think there's a clown trapped in the basement?"
"Maybe there's a serial killer keeping them down there."
He stared at me, wide-eyed. "You know what that means. It puts the seltzer in the pants."
And while we're joking about serial killers, here's a lovely little music video by The Greenskeepers called "It Puts the Lotion in the Basket". Sing along!
