I finally saw IT (2018), and feel sorry for the clown.

Beholding the swarms of mosquitoes trying to make a meal out of me, despite the herbal anti-bug spray.

But can I really blame them, in a moral sense?

They are just hungry.

In the same sense Pennywise was just hungry for fear.

But at the end they just let him starve.

Hello people, we have an unique alien creature here.

I think it deserves some sympathy and respect.

If it was a lion in Africa that ate loads of kids, nobody would even care.

Not true. They've been luring man-killers with some o' that fancy men's Par-Fum and exterminating them.

I say thumbs down on Pennywise. Okay, maybe we keep him as a specimen. Who feeds him who, HoM?

And what about this feller? He needs human flesh, HoM! Do we keep him too?

Pennywise is not a clown.

It's a spider.

It's a giant evil alien space spider.

With my PTSD, I think I could keep Pennywise as a pet.

And yeah he should be on the cites, endangered species list.

Plants?

That's a different story, somebody with green fingers can volunteer for that.

I'm already having nightmares about the handful of cannabis seeds I threw in the garden the other night.

It's technically legal now in South Africa, but oh boy if they grow, I don't wanna explain it to my landlord.

Isn't it a pity that Pennywise can't photosynthesize?

Come to think of it, even if I was green, could I photosynthesize?

Yeah, from what I read in this handyman's magazine today I could.
But without roots and so, it would only fulfill 20 percent of my daily energy requirements.

Maybe a 24-hour cineplex could hire Pennywise to operate the projectors for horror movies on the graveyard shift. Plenty of fear there. But maybe he would eat the customers.

Doesn't that actually happen at the end of The Babadook?

Instead of killing or exorcising the monster, it's kept in the cellar, and seems kinda tame.

He'd eat the customers.

The fear only "seasons" the meat.

He could eat without terrorizing his prey.

He tortures his victims for fun.

Once again, not a clown, a spider.

A giant evil alien space spider.

A SADISTIC giant evil alien space spider.

Tell him they are sterile tomato plants.

Are you familiar with the source material?
Respect is certainly deserved. Sympathy not so much so, if you read the interludes.

But kudos to the film makers as they have given you this perspective.

If frogs can be turned gay, we flip the sterile tomatoes too!

In the ketchup ... come and and join your fellow man ... In the ketchup.

Hello?
Where did all the mayonnaise suddenly come from?

Who cares - In the ketchup, yeah.

Compare it to ET - a nice, but fairly uninteresting alien.

Yet ET had the entire cavalry after him.

Pennywise terrifies generations, but nobody ever phones the FBI.

Mosquitoes and some other bugs do not like the smell of coconut oil. phys.org...

I am guessing this info is actually real since they put it on a Physics site. Coconut oil is cheap.

Re: mosquitoes.
I usually got chemical roll-on, but I don't like the smell or feel.

So now got this herbal stuff called "Bug-ger off!"

I think it's mostly Citronella oil.

I had disappointing results with that before, but I must say, I've survived the night, and don't seem bitten at all.

The strange thing is the sun's out - they can't possibly still be here.
And they're not.
But yet I feel they're still in my hair and on my skin.

Dastardly creatures.

Anyway - if we judge the clown from It because he was hungry, then shouldn't we judge people who eat lambs and calves similarly?

Ah, but he doesn't actually feed on the flesh and blood of humans, he feasts on the fear of humans.

Now some conspiracy theorists (myself mostly) might think that's a perfect metaphor for the archons.

And I agree.

He enjoyed killing, not just doing out of necessity, not even lions take the time to waste it on that

At times yes it looks like what you are talking about, but in the end i think IT was just evil, because he was aware. He could have gone for the most f*cked up people in the world and live out of that, if he cared at all, but he didn't. He liked the game

The latest movie version - I think he was just hungry.

The book, and other versions - sorry too complex and long ago.

Did he enjoy it, or was it just a tragic necessity?
A bit like whipping in the old British navy.

Somehow - the first clown I ever felt sorry for.

But, I'm floating.

Pennywise cant die, because he is not alive, you cant kill what does not live.

Duh! Peoples.

Hes just a projection on this dimension of a something from another dimension, which in turn is just a projection of the question and quandaries of the eternal space turtle. And in all the universe all that exists is the turtle, and it. Because in all universes all that ever exists is ever but one.

I mean its in the name, uni-verse. Turtle and it. Which is saying the same dam thing, like oxygen and air. Duh!

Didn't even read the books all the way or watch the movie, but its like a big duh.
