It's Official: Gingers Are Scary

Abuse of Discretion's first audience poll returned unsurprising results this weekend when readers declared that gingers are scarier than clowns, heights, and Resident Evil 2. The results of the poll are as follows:

Which of these things is the scariest?
Gingers: 47%
Clowns: 26%
Heights: 15%
Resident Evil 2: 10%
(Percentages rounded down.)

These results suggest that a ginger's naturally pale skin and red hair is much scarier than a clown's pale face paint and red wig. Also, not enough people have played Resident Evil 2.

Please take a moment to answer this week's poll, which is a bit more topical.


  1. If they had put gingers in RE2, I wouldn't have played it. That game came out when I was like fourteen and I could not have handled a bunch of undead gingers at that point in my life.

  2. Carrot Top is scary. Not so much because he is a ginger, but because he's made it so far in life without any discernible talent.

  3. By what standard has Carrot Top "made it so far in life"?

  4. I agree with Anonymous #2. Being popularly referred to as a vegetable isn't what I'd call "[making] it so far in life."

  5. Anonymous #1 here. Carrot Top "remains the only person to win Entertainer of the Year and Comedian of the Year in the same year." The Top has made it pretty far for a ginger.

  6. LOL "Gingie". I hope to see more of "Gingie" around here.

  7. This is soooo overdone. Who didn't already know that gingers are creepy?
