Scary Clown Doughnut Delivery

How to lose your friends in one simple step

If you ever need a practical joke that also has a solid chance of alienating your friends for life, try taking a cue from Texas-based shop Hurts Donuts. This past week, the Dallas-area sweets shop was offering a terrifying add-on to its delivery service: a box of fresh, warm doughnuts, personally handed over via a scary clown.

"We always try to keep up with the trends, and clowns are trending right now," owner Kas Clegg tells GuideLive. "We just love scary clowns."

All customers had to do was pay $10 for the scary monster to remind their Texas friends their lifelong fear of clowns is both very rational and very real. (Hopefully, they chose a 1 a.m. delivery, as the shop is open 24 hours a day.) 

Though the two-day special is over, according to the shop's Facebook page, the team notes, "If we have enough interest in surrounding communities . . . we may pick a day for out of town clown deliveries as well!"
