Just how creepy is stumbling upon a detached, used Band-Aid? Pretty creepy, according to comedy writer David Bickel, whose Creepiosity: A Hilarious Guide to the Unintentionally Creepy catalogues 100 of the most disturbing everyday creep-outs you're likely to encounter. Grown men in Boy Scout uniforms? (Let's hope not.) Old ladies with really long hair? (Please no.) Fish with people faces? (I can't look.) Lifelike baby dolls? (Why, just why?) The author joins comedians Kevin Pollak, Nick Kroll, Laura Silverman and Gary Valentine to examine the raison d'être of the creepy, along with a warning: “Some things are intended to be creepy. Other things are not.”
