The Weird Universe explores a human and natural cosmos that is not only stranger than we imagine, but stranger than we can imagine. The usual suspects are Paul Di Filippo; Alex Boese, curator of the Museum of Hoaxes; and Chuck Shepherd, purveyor of News of the Weird.

  • Great Poker Face
    The idea of propping up corpses in true-to-life poses at funerals is something we've seen before here at WU. For instance, in 2008 there was Angel Pantoja Medina "standing tall at his funeral," and in 2014 I posted about the corpse of Miriam Burbank sitting at a table at her funeral, smoking a menthol cigarette. The latest news story along these lines involves Puerto Rican poker fanatic Henry Rosario Martinez, whose friends posed his corpse sitting at a poker table, so they could enjoy one last game with him.

  • Fries and Ketchup
    February 9, 2016: Texas State University student Monika Rostvold lay on an outdoor table, wearing only a bra and underwear, then covered herself in Chick-fil-A fries and ketchup. She did this, she explained, to draw attention to the negative effects of dating and hooking up. She elaborated that the culture of hooking up is "very satisfying, but is it healthy? Is it really what we want? That’s what I’m asking the audience. I know fast food and the body is hard to connect, but to me it just made sense." I'd like to know why she chose Chick-fil-A fries.

  • Holland Girl ISO American Boy
    1959: A Holland girl sent a letter to North South Dakota addressed "To a Nice Boy" seeking someone with whom she could correspond. You can sense in her letter the kind of suspicions about identity that have become so familiar in the Internet age — that you often don't know people's true identity online. You just know who they're claiming to be. But of course, how do we know that "Holland girl" was really a girl? The Gastonia Gazette (Gastonia, NC) — Dec 31, 1959
