Angry Children with Toys Will Haunt Your Dreams (Photos)

I don’t know what it is about them that horrifies me. There are certainly things more worthy of my terror out there — clowns, public toilet seats, the conservative right-wing agenda.

And those things do haunt me, but if you cut to the core of the content of my nightmares you will find old black and white photographs of children.

They are always so stiff and proper and worst of all angry. Even in this collection from the Musee McCord Museum, where the children are photographed with their favorite toys, they appear more likely to tear someone’s head off than snuggle a teddy bear.

If any of them smiled, I imagine their lips would part to reveal a row of pointy, razor-sharp teeth. Don’t believe me? Check them out for yourself.
