Hmmm. Weird Wisconsin. To qualify as weird in a state that gave us Jeffrey Dahmer, Ed Gein, and Green Bay Packer fans, you have to be pretty out there.

This site covers two of those three oddities and features delightful subheadings like: Ghosts & Haunts, Killers & Ghouls, Creatures, Aliens & UFOs. The only thing missing is a sticky bun-balancing lagamorph.

Eye of the Beholder

alllooksame.com

All Look Same is a question, not a statement. The site has a photo quiz where you can see just how good you are at determining ethnicity of different Asian people. Over 1.3 million people have taken the quiz. We here at WWWeird did worse than chance. But hey, what do you expect from people who have no contact with actual humans. Our days are spent noses to the monitor. We'd probably fair poorly in an All Look Same quiz that simply asked us to identify the biped.

Introducing the Jeff Stryker [ ahem ] Action Figure. Yes, it's anatomically correct. Yes, it's posable. Yes, the penis does go from soft to erect. And no, you can't play with ours. Get your own! As if the doll wasn't enough, the site featured the video for Stryker's Country Western song Pop You in the Pooper, starring the doll. Sadly, at press time the video had been pulled. ( An mp3 of the song is still available. ) And yes, we did download the video. And no, we won't email it to you, so don't ask.

we should probably save this for easter but...

Whoa boy. This is one of those sites where you go, 'This is a joke, I think.' Eventually you find the detail that clinches it for you. For me it was the black woman recounting how moved she was that Sally liked to touch her hair. Oddly enough, when I look at the fundie satire sites, I can never find that detail. No matter how ridiculous the satirists try to be, the Fred Phelpses and James Dobsons of the world are even loonier.
