Greetings fellow Bizarros:

New Deals2018This would have made the perfect story for Halloween. Imagine you're working on renovating an historic building somewhere in Georgia. It's old and dilapidated and honestly, a little creepy. You're on the second floor, getting ready to knock down an interior wall. You heave your sledgehammer into the cracked and yellowed plaster and in a cloud of dust you are suddenly showered in thousands and thousands of the creepiest, most disgusting things you can imagine.

It's not the beginning of a horror movie. That is exactly what happened to workers who were renovating an old building in downtown Valdosta.

The Converse building has been around since the 19th century and has plenty of history. But workers were not prepared when they knocked down a wall to have thousands of human teeth come spilling out all over the floor.

City staff have been digging into the building's history to find an explanation as to why they were there and believe they may have come up with part of an answer.

Harry Evans, a researcher for the Lowndes County Historical Society and Museum, told local news the building was once occupied by a dentist named Clarence Whittington in 1900.

What's even more unusual, this isn't the first time human teeth have been found in older buildings in the state. Teeth have been found in buildings in both Greensboro and Carrollton.

"I'm not sure if it was common practice between dentists at that time," said Ellen Hill, the Valdosta Main Street director.

Donald Davis, the executive director for the Lowndes County Historical Society and Museum, said the museum is slated to receive some of the teeth. He said the find adds to the city's "dental history".

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Customers at a vegetarian restaurant in Bangkok were served human flesh from the body of a man killed by the business' owner, it is claimed. Diners were shocked when they found minced meat in a dish that was only supposed to contain noodles and vegetables. They made a complaint to local authorities and that triggered an inspection of the restaurant. But local authorities, who were expecting to find minced pork or beef, were stunned when they discovered that the diners were served human flesh. The restaurant's owner is accused of trying to dispose of a man's body by cutting him up, cooking his flesh and serving it to customers. Police found the chunks of human flesh on the floor and blood spattered on the walls inside the kitchen. During a search of the premises they found a 61-year-old man's disfigured body in a septic tank. It is claimed that he was killed during a fight with the restaurant's owner.

Man Paddles World's Largest Pumpkin Boat

A fall attraction in Britain said it is set a new world record by carving a 1,364-pound gourd into the world's largest pumpkin boat. The York Maze in England hauled the massive pumpkin to the River Ouse where maze owner Tom Pearcy paddled it between Ouse Bridge and Skeldergate Bridge. Officials said they discovered Guinness World Records does not currently have a listing for the largest pumpkin boat. "York Maze have applied to Guinness World Records to have this new record recognized," a York Maze spokesman told the York Press. "According to our research, the 1,364 pound pumpkin to be turned into a boat by York Maze is heavier than any other pumpkin boats that have been reported in the media." The pumpkin boat was hoisted back out of the water and returned to York Maze, where it will be on display until the end of the attraction's Halloween festival.

Lewis, Oregon Witches only float if they weigh the same as a duck. Everyone knows that.


My cousin Barry got arrested while being dressed up as a baby. Of course that was back in April... Keep it up, Lewis! --Burt


Lewis, clearly the most embarrassing costume to have someone attack you in is a clown. Who wants to get slapped around by a clown?


I was punched in the face once by a guy dressed up as a giant baby. He had a diaper on and everything! It was a costume party at a bar. Of course, I was making out with his girlfriend at the time, but still.
