Everything floats down in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Mister RogersWARNING: The following post contains images of a shocking nature and despite its source material, is not appropriate for anyone under the age of 18. And before you get all excited, no, it does not contain naked boobies.

We all remember lovable ol' Fred Rogers, aka TV's Mister Rogers, as a warm, cuddly and caring neighbor who never wore a frown and always had a smile for someone smaller than him.

But what if all those cheerful hellos, colorful sweater jackets and speeches about being special on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood were just a mask hiding something very dark and sinister? Specifically, a clown mask?

One intrepid video maker on the Interwebs attempted to answer that very question with this downright spine fluid churning video of the "evil" Mister Rogers in action. As a former pupil of the PBS star, I don't remember seeing this video as a child, or maybe I just don't want to.

On the other hand, it might explain why the Bush Administration tried to push so many kids' shows out the door like Reading Rainbow. He truly was trying to eradicate the Axis of Evil, only there wasn't enough room on the Axis for Mr. Rogers. If only Bush had created an Octagon of Evil or even a Dodecahedron of Evil, we could have stopped him.

I don't know what the point of this was, but I loved the Pennywise reference.
