Whatever Wednesday – Creepy Mannequins

In this episode of Whatever Wednesday we’re going to discuss how freaking creepy mannequins are… I’m looking at some now that are watching me from a second story full wall glass window of a store. There’s nothing else on display in this window besides the two mannequins, which only adds to the creep-factor (a complex calculated value between “1” and “get the ‘eff’ away from me!”)

It didn’t used to be much of an issue back when they were lower on the creep-factor scale and were just awkwardly shaped stuffed poles… But now they actually LOOK human. They have hair and noses… And they are posing. Actually now that I think about it, I’ve never seen anyone pose in the awkward standing sit ups position in real life, so I guess we can give them a pass there. But the other one is doing that staring off in the distance thing. What’s the deal with THAT!?

To top it all off we decided to name them mannequins. Whose intelligent decision was that? That’s definitely up there on the top ten creepiest words list. Anything with three N’s and a Q automatically qualifies.

It’s only going to get worse too. I imagine in the future we will have robot mannequins that actually display clothes as they walk around and change poses and haunt peoples dreams… We have a lot to look forward to… Now I’ll probably go have nightmares…
