Halloween 2016. Clowns are the scourge now. What’s next? – SCN Encourager

Isn’t this the question good school communicators always ask?

So… What’s Next after the current clown rage?

I know you’re asking this.

And for once, I have an answer!

Believe it or not, I’m ahead of the curve.
I’m totally on top of what’s trending.
And I’m going to share it all with you today.

Now granted, I had some help – as all I had to do was drive down the street a couple of days ago around lunch time.

It was then I turned into the path of this unusual creature who was only about 30 yards away!


grillingI really couldn’t see what this abomination was carrying in his hand, but since I had preached the importance of observation recently, what could I do?

I had to stop my car and see what was up.

(I’m not a wimp, you know.)

When I stopped the car and got out to take a photo with my cell phone, this horror from points unknown began methodically stepping toward me.

He then raised his weapon in a menacing way… and I scrambled back into my car – like speedy-kwik!

(I guess I am a wimp, after all.)

It took me a couple of seconds to process what I had seen.

And then it hit me.

This obscenity was wielding an oversized sharp and shiny grill brush!


This event could be the clarion call of terrible times to come.

What if everyday backyard “grilling guys” (like me and so many others) were to become the next public scourge right after the world finally makes its peace with clowns?

The likelihood was gut-wrenching.

And beyond all of us amateur grillers – what does this unsettling possibility mean to school communicators who are also true BBQ masters? (like Ron Koehler, the assistant superintendent at the KentISD and former NSPRA president?)

I know I should be encouraging today.

But I can’t.

Not when I contemplate the frightening future ahead for every common grilling guy!

Think about it.

Even tailgaters will not be able to escape the public’s fear and wrath.

Anyway, I hope you’re able to enjoy your Halloween.

While you’re out having your fun, I’ll do my best to stay on top of our society’s developing issues.

And oh, I wish my three daughters weren’t in their 20’s.
I love this costume!
