I'm still chuckling over this comic strip, from Richard Thompson's wonderful Cul de Sac. If you've never indulged, please do. You're missing a lot.

What I admire about Thompson's work is that you can tell he spends a lot of time writing these things out before he draws them. That's probably stock in trade for comic strippers, but still, his stand out -- they have kind of a Sparky Schulz quality to them. But Thompson's ear for sound might perhaps be sharper than Sparky's. I had a jack-in-the-box that made this exact sound as a kid. Reading this comic brought back a flood of scary clown memories.
