Bizarre Nazi Program to Breed Giant Rabbits RevealedPosted: September 29, 2013 Filed under: Bizarre | Tags: Angora rabbit, Heinrich Himmler, Luftwaffe, Operation Munchkin 3 Comments
Details of a weird Nazi breeding program were recently uncovered in an old German archive. It seems that S.S. Chief Heinrich Himmler — occultist, former chicken farmer and all-around bastion of sanity — orchestrated a plan to secretly raise giant Angora rabbits in concentration camps during World War II in order to provide warm, fur-lined coats for Luftwaffe pilots. The program was adorably called Operation Munchkin. For reals.
Members of Operation Munchkin, arguably the cuddliest Nazis ever.
The rabbits were humanely raised in warm hutches and more than one poor inmate/caretaker was executed for not showing Himmler’s bunnies “enough respect.”
Heinrich Himmler: Rabbit Activist.
Stare into the face of evil. Snuggly, wuggly evil.
Mysterious Creepy Clown Caught on TapePosted: September 27, 2013 Filed under: Bizarre | Tags: creepy clown, creepy clown caught on tape, Northampton clown, Pennywise 2 Comments
A not-at-all-insane person has been spotted lurking around the town of Northampton in the U.K. dressed like a homicidal clown. He never speaks — he just stares at people as they walk/run by trying not to scream, presumably to the store to buy replacement underpants.
Here he is, being absolutely fucking terrifying while holding toy balloons.
Imagine running into this at night:
Don’t mind me. I’m just here to eat your soul.
Chuckles Manson up there was recently captured on video for the first time, silently being creepy as shit in a fountain.
While remaining anonymous, the mystery man described his behavior to a local newspaper as “just a bit of harmless fun.” He then climbed into a windowless van full of shovels and duct tape and asked for directions to the nearest kindergarten.
Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters! (Also, me.)Posted: September 14, 2013 Filed under: Ghosts 6 Comments
Very excited to be taking my first paranormal investigation class today! Taught by the owner of Fort Worth Ghost Tours, the workshop will discuss the basics of ghost-hunting and feature demonstrations on how to use the basic tools of the trade (K-2 meters, EVP recorders, etc.)
So, if you want to know if your house is haunted, call me. I will put my crack paranormal investigative skills to work. If you’ve got ghosts, it will be confirmed by me running away screaming in a very professional manner.
Bravery: It’s overrated.
Spooky Jewel-Encrusted Saint Skeletons Found In CatacombsPosted: September 11, 2013 Filed under: Bizarre, Miscellaneous | Tags: Bejeweled skeletons, Catacombs of Rome, Catholic, Christian martyrs, Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures and Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs, Skeleton 5 Comments
In a particularly morbid find, a 400-year-old collection of heavily jeweled skeletons has been discovered in Europe. The bodies of Catholic martyrs and saints were meticulously decorated with precious jewels, pearls and crowns centuries ago and displayed for the poor to worship. Which in no way is a dick move by the Church at all.
Are we sure this isn’t what’s left of Liberace?
Some of them were displayed in rather flamboyant costumes.
Breast plate? Check. Hoop skirt? Check. Pimp cup. Check. Now, who’s ready to get saintly all up in here?
And some were arranged in inexplicably hilarious, come-hither poses.
“How YOU doin’?”
Cryptid Corner: Walking Shark Discovered in IndonesiaPosted: September 7, 2013 Filed under: Cryptozoology, Nerd HQ, Writing | Tags: Halmahera, Indonesia, Shark, walking shark 3 Comments
A new species of shark that can actually WALK has been discovered in Indonesia. This new species uses four sturdy fins like feet to waddle along the ocean floor looking for small prey.
It’s like watching the world’s ugliest underwater puppy.
This new species is small and harmless to humans. SO FAR.
How long before it learns to walk on land? How long before it gets bigger and develops a taste for blood? How long before SyFy Channel execs have it starring in “Land Shark: Tooth or Consequences”?
I want to give you a big hug. With my teeth.

Damn you, you sexy bitch. You gross us all out by producing some of the most terrifying snack food on the planet.
Cumber Pepsi: Add a twist of radish to complete a hat-trick of horrible.
Crispy Salmon Doritos: Leave these out for Santa and see what happens.
Octopus-flavored ice cream – Now with extra tentacle! (You knew there would be a tentacle joke in here somewhere.)
But then you lure me back with this hilarious video.
I wish I knew how to quit you.
