Noseybonk Returns. This is not horrifying news unless you know who he was. Then it becomes endearingly nightmarish. As with V, the man in the mask is Noseybonk.

Previously -- I found this after poking around from that thread's links.

I suspect Noseybonk is so memorable because, although not billed as such, he's actually a clown -- a sort of grotesque whiteface, or mime.

This comic, Dr. Ashens, has also done a good deal of funny Youtube reviewing of terrible ripoff technology such as the "POPstation" and the "Sport Vii."

Memories of being terrified in the early 80s just came flooding back.

Is there a Greasemonkey script that will allow me to prevent posts that scare the bejesus out of me from displaying?

Okay. That is some seriously dementedly terrifying something over.

I hated Jigsaw - prissy Janet Ellis talking to stoopid talking jigsaw piece with stoopid-as-hell voice. After all that, Mr Noseybonk seemed not quite so odd.

Wow. As soon as I heard that music it all came flooding back, another thing I didn't even know I'd forgotten. This'll freak my sister out too- thanks, internet!

This flood of repressed memories inspired me though: Ah, Ludwig

I was always struck by the similarity between Noseybonk and Piman - both scared the fuck out of me!

Do not speak ill of Janet Ellis.

I could watch Jigsaw without fear as a child (only a little boredom) but one of my sisters was scared by Noseybonk and refused to watch. Until now I hadn't realised she wasn't alone.

My wife recently saw a Noseybonk clip for the first time, stared in disbelief, then turned to me and said "How could you not have been scared by that?!"
