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!

Lots of people have a collection of some sort. Stamps or model airplanes, rocks or hockey cards are all popular items that people collect. But would you believe that somewhere out there are people who collect locks of celeb's hair and even those who collect their own navel fluff? Yuck.

Locks Of Celeb Hair

John 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 Fluff

In 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 Dolls

We'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 Posters

Ok, 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 Covers

Have 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.

1 I think that all the facts about collections are true. There are really weirdos like that. It's odd but it's definitely true!

    They stared a the grave in horror, Miss winters crying and screaming at the doctor. The grave digger was pale and shook his head. "No, no." And the doctor had his head in his hands, his body shaking like a leaf. The poor things eyes were wide open in terror, it's little fingers bloody from scratching at the wood, tears still wet on her face. She was buried alive...poor thing.

    I love the clothes mommy makes for me. They're so soft and warm. They have funny little patches all over them. And They always smell clean, kinda like when mommy wipes the floor in her 'creating room' I'm not allowed to go in there. Anyway~ Mommy loves me alot, she let's me play outside, gives me hugs And LOTS of new clothing. I wish it came in different colors though. It's always pale, maybe a tan, like wood. Sometimes really dark, like chocolate. Once I got a shirt that looked like cream! I asked mommy if I could have a pink shirt. But she said no. Cause her fabric can't be dyed. I understand that. And still love my mommy very much. The only thing that bothers me is the screaming I hear when she makes them.
