It’s been more than a week since Halloween, but this Reddit post is certainly still worth the scare!
A Reddit user named Swamp*ass shared a photo of his cousin delivering a baby on Halloween.
There’s nothing really unsual about the post, except that the doctor went into the delivery room dressed as “The Joker”; the Batman nemesis played recently by the late actor Heath Ledger from “The Dark Knight”.
“Cousin gave birth on Halloween night. This was the doc during the delivery,” the post read.
The photo, which was sure to have given the expectant mom the creeps, showed “Doc Joker” in his most terrifying get-up; complete with make-up on a disfigured face and his perpetual grin, plus the shabby, drawn hair.
The post has drawn varied reactions from commenters.
“In about 18 years. This kid is going to post these picture on Reddit and say “the joker delivered me” and all of us old timers are going to relish the fact that we have been here to see it all,” one wrote.
“The child born will either have a horrific fear of clowns or some odd affinity toward becoming one…” said another.
The viral photo has since been viewed more than 1.4M times on Imgur and commented more than 3,000 times on Reddit.
