I pray our Sweetwater's Donut Mill does decide to do this promotion...

A Donut shop in Springfiled MO has come up with the worst ( I actually mean best) Halloween promotions yet. For a small fee you can have a 'Pennywise the Clown' (from Stephan King's book 'It') deliver a friend, or  honestly soon to be enemy. a box of donuts.

Hurts Donut Co. Creepy Clown Delivery

Hurts Donut co-owner Kas Clegg told  Guide Live the reason they came up with the promotion...

"We always try to keep up with trends, and clowns are trending right now. It's fall, and it's getting close to Halloween, so we just wanted to spice it up a little bit and do a super fun delivery ...We just love scary clowns."

What a crazy scary idea..I can't imagine if our Swetwater's Donut Mill decided to scare the pants off people while delivering a sweet treat. (Really, really really hope they don't start this promotion).

Other Companies that have jumped on the 'Scary Clown' band wagon.

Burger King - 

Last year the fast food chain offered a  free  Whooper to customers who came in dressed as a clown. Their tag line was..

"Come as a clown, eat like a king."

I wonder how big the clown craze is going to become this year. Last year the Scary Clowns were all the rage, and I think there were a couple reasons why...

  • The remake of Stephan Kings 'It' the movie (based off of his 1986 book) was released.
  • American Horror Story: Cult came out and is based around the political climate of the day, clowns and murder. Bonus, the plot of the series was based on a fictional town located in Michigan.

Plus, clowns are scary!

Even though we can't order the delivery of donuts from a clown here in Kalamazoo, it might be a fun prank to pull on someone.
