Weird Things for Weirdos
A Collection of Weird Things
I've always liked weird things, ever since I got a little skeleton on a keyring as a child.
If it's weird enough, I'll want to know about it, be it in the realm of weird ornaments, weird photographs, weird behaviour or weird people.
Weirdness caters to the imagination, whereas normality is just.....what?
Do you like weird stuff and oddities too? If so, there will be plenty to entertain you here.
A Doggy (and Possibly Dodgy) Film Crew - Is that Weird or What? Imagine meeting them on Halloween!
This weird little collection of dogs stands about 3 - 4 inches high, each one separate, so you can space them around to the best vantage point for them to start "filming".
They are made of painted clay I think, and I've certainly never seen anything similar in the shops.
If you are interested in buying them, please contact me
Weird Artefacts at the British Museum - What if these symbolic Mexican snakes start moving?
These snakes look evil
Are they casting an evil eye on you?
Would you spend a night at the museum, or would you want to go home early?
Weird Stuff on eBay - Join an eBay auction - it's easy!
These weird things are chosen by eBay, and as this changes daily, you might like to return to this page if you don't find anything you want first time round. Also, if you hover on any of the items, it will transport you through to eBay, where you can browse for other things.
No Page on Weird Stuff is Complete Without Wallace and Gromit - Possibly my favorite weirdos on television
This is a rubber Wallis and Gromit ornament, about 12-inches high.
Gromit is in the bath, covered in foaming shampoo, poor darling.
If you would like to own it, please contact me and I will remove it from its shelf in my lounge and sadly kiss it goodbye, or should I say kiss them goodby?
Wallace and Gromit - Here they are again, my favorite weirdos!
This time on cufflinks, with a special Walliace and Grommit box
Are they not cute?
But would you not be a little disconcerted if you saw their little faces peering through the window one dark and stormy night?
Here's a Very Weird Tattoo - The Green Man
I asked a stranger if I could take this photograph of his tattoo - I get quite brazen when I'm looking for a good photo!
This Green Man Tattoo is quite unnerving when you are close up to it - the art work is very effective, and the Green Man seems to be looking right at you.
Now imagine the Green Man moving slightly as muscles ripple.
Do not let this man put his arm round you on Halloween - you never know what might happen!!
Here's Another Tattoo, This Time a Dragon - It was done on the arm of one of my friends, Jens
Welcome to Royston Vaisey!
The League of Gentlemen - Complete Series - Just the thing for an evening at home - This is comedy at its very weirdest
Some people didn't like this series, because it is about very odd people in a village, Royston Vaisey, which is peopled by weirdos and perverts. They don't like strangers in Royston Vaisey, and they all stick together.
There is an atmosphere of dark foreboding and evil, and the protagonists are some of the most vile people you could come across. But they look after each other - it's just the strangers who don't fare well.
I love it - British humour can be quite grim, almost incomprehensible at times, but so funny that I could hardly wait till the next television episode, and always stayed in on that night.
Take the Poll Below About Weirdness - What is the extent of your weirdness?
Would you be suspicious of this man if you met him on a dark night, say Halloween, carrying an axe?
Why are you here on this page? Are you a bit weird yourself?
Here's a Painting by Richard Dadd
Richard Dadd was an accomplished Artist and Entered the Royal Academy at the age of 20
When he was 27, after travelling in Egypt, sadly he became mentally ill, probably bi-polar disorder and psychosis. He heard voices, and became violent. He murdered his father by cutting his throat, escaped to France, and then threatened to kill other people. He was eventually captured and confined in Bethlem Lunatic Asylum, and later for the rest of his life in Broadmoor Lunatic Asylum for the Criminally Insane. Whilst there, he continued painting masterpieces, many of mythical scenes.
This is My Latest Addition to my Weird Collection - a Gargoyle - He's on the wall opposite my kitchen
I look out of the window as I do the washing up at the sink, and he leers back at me.
For me, Halloween comes every night of the year, when I see his little gargoyle face grinning down at me
He is particularly hideous, isn't he?
