What is up with creepy stuff FALLING FROM THE SKY?

As if there isn't enough stuff to creep us all out. Now we have to worry about earthworms and spiders raining down on us!

Earthworms raining from the sky over Norway.
And spiders raining down on Australia. 

(Luckily) there are no pictures of the earthworms, but National Geographic posted this picture of the spiders raining on Australia:

"All I knew was this cat was dead and Pet Sematary is real."

Along with the quotation I used for the title of this blog post, the title of the article is enough to give me nightmares: "Five days after burial, Tampa cat crawls back from grave".  And there are so many parts of this article that are totally creepy, and not just the horrible writing quality.

But there are also so many parts that make me sad. This cat was buried alive! For 5 days! With a broken jaw, ruptured eye, and messed up face! Poor little guy. As much as I hate cats, I would not wish this upon any cat or animal.

Rest of the article here:

THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY in so many ways, but also so very sad for the cat. I'm glad he's okay now...

(BIG shoutout to my friend, Ben Stein, for yet another creepy gem. He's gaining on Michael Sabat as top outside contributor!)

Not only is that a naked Barbie doll, it's a GIANT naked Barbie doll. In a tree!

This was found on the road in Richmond, CA. That is creepy enough. Then the guys that found it moved it into a tree so "it wouldn't be in the road". Also creepy. BUT, the barbie doll is also waist-high on an adult. AHHH!

Giant+naked+barbie doll+in a tree= THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY!!

At least it's for a good cause?

I appreciate the creativity, and the mission, but man, this mascot is super creepy! But it seems like it is working, and for that, I think it's pretty genius. 

But take a look at that picture. And look at the other picture in the article.


(And thanks to Michael, yet again, for finding this creepiness for me!)

I definitely consider this more "informative" than "creepy", but to each his/her own!

I don't really consider this "creepy", but my co-worker/friend, Ben, does. So I'm humoring him this one time. And then going off to eat a baby...


Well, except for maybe this part: "What's more, the mothers' reward circuits showed far more activation than those of the non-mothers; for moms the sensation one gets when sniffing an infant presumably feels even more like the feeling of having obtained food."

(Shoutout to my friend, Ben Stein, for this gem!)

Adding teeth to plush toys is a bad idea...but apparently a profitable one?

Oh god. I can't decide if it's the teeth or the eyes that make these (formerly very cute plush) dolls make me want to curl up into fetal position and cry. I would post a screenshot, but even I have my limits. You'll just have to take matters into your own hands and click the link:

THAT'S so so so so so TOTALLY CREEPY!

(And if you have nightmares, like I will surely have tonight, feel free to thank my buddy, Hubert, for sending me this link.)

What is up with her foot? Is that a sock with holes in it?

The title of the article pretty much sums it up, "Kate Middleton & Royal Baby's First Portrait Is Just Plain Creepy (PHOTO)". I honestly could not have said it better myself. Apparently, this VERY unsolicited painting was dropped off at the hospital where Kate Middleton was set to give birth to the royal baby, before she was there to give birth. Could you imagine having that waiting for you? As if labor and delivery aren't stressful enough! 

The corgi is pretty cute. Too bad s/he is sitting next to the weird sock with holes in it/pegleg the artist decided to paint for Kate Middleton. 

Here's the full link to the article:

Pantsuit Rainbow! (Not Creepy)

I personally don't find this creepy, but it made me laugh out loud on a pretty crazy day. So I wanted to share it with the world!
Hillary Clinton+Pantsuit Rainbow=Awesome Sauce

Not sure if this is so much "creepy" as it is "hilarious", but I want to share all the same

It has been a few months since my last post. Apologies! I don't think I've ever been this bad with keeping up with this blog! But life is life!

This week has been quite the crappy one: the Boston Marathon bombing, the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, Senate being lame and not passing comprehensive background checks for gun purchases because the NRA owns them, the shootout and manhunt in Boston. DAAAAMN!

So in light of all of the horribleness, here's a temporary brain cleanser!


(Thanks again, Michael. For sending this to me, and for always making me laugh.)

To any watermelon lovers out there: accept my apologies in advance

Wow. I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since my last post. Sorry! But this is definitely worth the wait, in terms of pure creepiness. I don't even want to post the picture in here because that would mean I'd have to look at it forever, since obviously this blog will last forever. But if this link breaks, the creepiness would be lost forever, and that would be sad. Compromise: I'm pasting the picture in here in the smallest size I can, and here's the link too:

I don't know if I should thank for posting this, or hate them forever for posting this. I'm torn. And again, apologies to anyone that was planning on eating watermelon ever again.


(And thanks again to Michael for helping me out. You're a little too good at finding creepy things. That, in of itself, is totally creepy!)

Kind of funny, kind of creepy

When you follow this pizza chain on twitter, there's a chance their mascot will "follow" you in person. This is hilariously creepy. Kind of genius. Kind of funny. But mostly creepy, no?

"When the pizza restaurant chain Mellow Mushroom kicked off [its] "Follow Me and I’ll Follow You" campaign recently, it left out one slight detail: the following might end up extending beyond Twitter and into fans’ real lives. Created by Atlanta-based agency Fitzgerald+CO and directed by Arts & Science’s Adam and Dave, a new series of videos shows Twitter users going about their day, only to be ambushed by Mellow Mushroom’s mascot, a giant felt mushroom that looks like it fell out of 1967 Haight-Ashbury and into a shallow puddle of THC resin."

THAT'S TOTALLY (kind of hilariously) CREEPY!

I also just submitted this comment at the bottom of the article:
You have a typo. It should say, "When the pizza restaurant chain Mellow Mushroom kicked off ITS "Follow Me and I’ll Follow You" campaign recently,"
Its=belongs to it (no apostrophe)
It's=it is
I was really hoping I read it wrong, but the apostrophe is definitely there. *Sigh. Come on, Fast Company! I have come to rely on you for at least decent grammar!

Guess I won't be eating bagels for a while

It is really a shame that I saw this article on "bagel day" at work. Luckily, I had already finished my bagel before I opened the link, but still. I would post a picture here, but every time I look at the pictures in the article, I feel like vomiting. So for selfish reasons, I will not post any pictures here. You'll just have to click through. And my apologies ahead of time. 

"Women (and men) in Asia have been taking part in a different injection "trend" for years: saline bagel-shaped injections on one's forehead."

My favorite comment is from user BrooklynChef: As someone who sells bagels for a living I find this creepy.

Word, BrooklynChef. Word. THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY!

Keeping skin cancer away and scaring people away! 2-for-1!!

I'm really not sure what to say about this. I "get" the reasoning behind this, and I applaud them for wanting to keep skin cancer away, but I think this is a little much. I feel like sunblock, when used correctly, works really well!!

Full Daily Mail article, with more pictures (ahhh!) here:


That's Totally Creepy!

(Thanks for my sister, Carolyn, for finding this gem)

Personalized mailing? More like CREEPY-ilized mailing!

My sister, Karen, is getting married in a few months, so naturally she's been inundated with bridal ads and mailings. But this one really takes the creepy cake. I can't figure out which is creepier: the little boy's face or the fact that they "personalized" the postcard by adding her name to the creepy boy's sidewalk chalk masterpiece. AHHHH!


And don't get me started on the name of the tux shop. Cutesy names for businesses. Ugh. 

(And, of course, congrats and thanks to Karen!)

Because nothing soothes a baby like dismembered hands/arms, right?!

I'm not really sure what to think about this. I mean, it probably does help soothe the baby somehow, but as a parent, how can you put these on your baby? You are an adult and you can see that you are putting creepy dismembered hands/arms on top of your baby! What's even creepier is that they are sold out! Check out this link:

Side note: the "discounted" price is pretty hilarious.
"Regular price: $44.95
Sale price: $44.95"
 Side note 2: Imagine putting Handerpants on these (refer to post below)! *shudder
(And a big thank you to my brother-in-law, Matt, for sending this to me. I've been really bad about updating this blog the past few months. I've had trouble finding truly creepy things. I know they're out there, I've just been bad at looking for them! It's nice when they land in my inbox!)

Gag gift? Real? Real(ly) Creepy Gag Gift?

"Handerpants...Underpants For Your Hands!" I mean, the tagline says it all. I just noticed this is an Archie McPhee product, which leads me to believe that it's supposed to be a gag gift. BUT I have a sinking feeling that there are a lot of people in certain parts of the world that are taking this seriously and are wearing them for their "intended" purposes, such as "keeping gloves fresh" and "sanitary handshakes".  You decide for yourself.

Even as a joke, I think this is TOTALLY CREEPY!

Isn't it bad enough they're wearing bibs that *look* like clothes? You have to add hats too?

I have mixed feelings about this. You can apparently buy patterns to make old people bibs that look like clothes. With matching hats! This makes me really sad because I don't like thinking about old people getting to a point where they have to wear bibs, but I guess some people like this, or else they wouldn't still be selling the pattern, no? I dunno. I just think the hats add an extra touch of creepiness and add that little bit of "let's take more of your dignity" to this whole concept.

Adult bibs that look like clothes: THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY!

Double Entendre?

I'm pretty much at a loss for words with this one. This is a local ad for a store in Berkeley that sells_______??? I can't tell by the ad. I guess they sell secondhand pirate outfits for older ladies?

This picture is so TOTALLY CREEPY!

(Jane, you're the best. I definitely see a trip to Tienda Ho in our future.)

Make Someone Happy...Don't Show Them This Picture

This same woman was named "Hottest Female TV Chef by Maxim Magazine". Hmmmmm. Not trying to hate on fellow females, but I'm pretty sure if the voting committee had seen this picture, she would have lost a few votes.


(Big thanks to my co-worker, Michael, for continuing to find me creepy pictures of people and for sending me funny emails along with the pics)

What happened to "you can grow up to be the President of the United States"?!

hmm... waitress role play? that's just plain disturbing, in addition to creepy... what happened to parents encouraging their kids to Dream Big??!*

THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY (and so sad for the little girls in this country)

*And special thanks to Jane. She wrote this to me in an email and sent me the picture. I loved what she wrote so I didn't change a thing!

Excuse me? WHAT did you do with the horse carcass?!

The headline says it all,

"Jasha Lottin, Oregon Woman, Took Nude Photos Inside Horse Carcass (PHOTOS)"

I saw a mention of this in the back of a recent issue of New York Magazine where they have an approval matrix of highbrow and lowbrow things on the Y axis, cross-referenced with despicable and brilliant on the X axis. Guess where this story landed on the matrix? I refuse to look at the pictures, but if you do, let me know how long it took before you had to vomit.

Holy sh*t! THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY (and effed up)!!

Baby or SUPER OLD MAN?! You decide

My coworker, Michael, sent me this picture the other day for my blog. We couldn't stop laughing about it because it's just so weird and creepy. It's a picture of a baby on a box of baby wipes, but something about his face just seems wrong. He looks like a REALLY OLD MAN.

This may be a case of "you had to be there," but I still can't stop laughing at this picture. It's TOTALLY CREEPY!

P.S. We looked up to see if it was available so that this picture could find a home. It's available! I'm tempted to buy it. Thoughts?

(Thanks, Michael!)

What's worse? Too many apostrophes or not enough?

I know this blog is turning into a grammar blog these days, but I just can't help it. And my friend Jane is feeding me such good material. I can't just turn it down!

You would think that a company like H&M that has a punctuation mark as part of its name would understand how important a punctuation mark is! Ugh.

The way the sentence is written above, it's as if they're saying "we were working on our appearance, but then we stopped because we don't care anymore". HA HA HA! Just add a freaking apostrophe!

THAT'S TOTALLY CREEPY and horrible grammar!

(Another shoutout to Jane Yi, Creepy Grammar Finder of the Year!)

Oh SF Gate. Please just hire a 6th grader to read your headlines out loud so you can avoid writing headlines like this: "James Spader claming 'the Office' top spot"

I know, I need to just start a bad grammar blog, but until then, we will file this under creepy grammar. I still think it's somehow TOTALLY CREEPY.

(Bravo, Jane for always catching this stuff!)

The baby's face is creeping me out

I'm not quite sure if this should be filed under "creepy" or "gross", or "grosspy", but I just don't like it. It's taken me a while to actually post this because I hate the look on the baby's face. It's supposed to be funny, but it gives me the heeby-jeebies. Maybe because it's a computer-generated baby? Or IS it?!

Why do companies do stuff like this?

That's Totally Creepy! And Gross!

(much love to Jane and Jess for sending me the link)
