Most people collect things like hockey cards or stamps, but some are people are more interested in weird collections like locks of hair, Ken dolls, fish posters or even navel fluff!
Locks Of Celeb HairJohn Rezinkoff from Connecticut, USA has a collection of over 115 locks of celebrity hair. John sticks to collecting only the most admirable famous people's hair and is eagerly searching for some of Shakespeare's and previous US presidents' locks. He was once offered over $50,000 US for his Abraham Lincoln sample!
Navel FluffIn Perth, Australia a man named Graham Barker has been collecting his own navel fluff since 1984. He keeps the 0.54oz (15.4g) ball of fluff in his bathroom for all his visitors to see.
Ken DollsWe've all heard of tons of people who collect Barbie Dolls, but when's the last time you heard of a Ken Doll collector? One guy seems to think that Ken is just as important as America's sweetheart, Barbie and has created his own site to "the man behind the doll."
Fish of the World PostersOk, so it's pretty weird to collect other people's hair and stranger to keep your old navel fluff but who would want to travel the world in search of fish posters? Well, while searching for weird collections, I happened to stumble across a site dedicated to one person's collection of fish posters. Weird.
Tissue Box CoversHave you ever been worried about the appearance of tissue boxes around your house? Well, one woman doesn't because she has taken to collecting tissue box covers. She has big ones and small ones. Covers that look like people and covers that look like cartoon characters. Yup, she has 'em all.
What do you think? Do people really go around collecting these strange things or did we make some of 'em up? Take our poll and see what others think or and tell us what you think.
I think that all the facts about collections are true. There are really
weirdos like that. It's odd but it's definitely true!
