I have always noticed the oddities out there in the world. Even before this blog became the catch-all for all things crazy, they always found me.
Now that I have deemed myself the Magnet For the Absurd it seems to have stuck. In the last 2 weeks people have sent me all sorts of oddly humorous and offbeat things, via every technology possible. I thought it would be fun to share a few.
This came from an old friend via email:
Driving cross country. Now in arizona. Just passed a billboard and thought of you: Ostrich Eggs. Meteorites. 50% off.

I particularly love the ‘Est. Before Mankind’. Nice touch.
These submissions prove to me that people do see the absurdities out there, they simply never had a place to share them.
I am happy to be that place, so keep ’em coming!
