the infinite space-time curve of pennywise the dancing clown
obviously @pyrrhiccomedy and I don’t have a perfect relationship, but I do want to mention that the actual biggest argument we’ve had in the past six months was over how Pennywise eliminates the waste of the children he consumes.
it got, as our more heated discussions often do, a little bit away from us.
she: look, i’m not saying he pulls down his clown bloomers and takes a shit in his underground lair–
me: he doesn’t eat the kids though, he eats their fear!
she: he literally ate a kid in the first scene of the movie, emily
me: yeah but he sucks them into his deadlights, he just wants their fucking–essence, or whatever! he only scares them so they taste better–
she: okay so you admit they taste better when they’re afraid, that means that something is actually being eaten, there’s actual flesh to taste–
she: THEIR BODIES HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE
me: no listen, listen, okay maybe, but the deadlights are like–it’s like a black hole, what would actually happen to the body of a preteen if it got sucked into a black hole??
me: you’re the science one, you know kids can’t live in a black hole!!!
she: that doesn’t–oh my god that doesn’t make any sense, black holes don’t work like that, none of that works like that!
me: THE KID’S BODY WOULD BE TORN APART
she: babe, are you suggesting that Pennywise is a singularity?
