Eight Corner Globe Oddities.

Monday, April 13th, 2009

At the Burlesque Expo in Boston Wolfie and I witnessed an oddities fair. I snapped some photos. The oddities troupe is called “Eight Corner Globe.” It’s some freaky stuff, be warned. Here are the photos. Professor Badger was a funny guy and he had a wealth of knowledge, some real, some fake, about the materials in his collection. See below, and visit their website to book them for your town. Oh yeah, they vacation on the Vineyard and would love to do a setup near the flying horses.

(Feel free to click the comment button and ask any questions you may have about the above images, he gave a pretty decent description of what they all were. Human scrimshaw, live black widows, Vampire slaying kits, etc.)

I informed the Professor about the woman with the invisible arm I’d read about on Boing Boing a few days prior.

This is certainly classy. Saw this in Oak Bluffs a couple hours ago.

copyrightpatent1Sarah found this old copyright image when she was looking for public domain pictures online the other day and she sent it to me. I thought it was quite amusing.

(Note: my page says copyright on the bottom but when I get some time I’m going to classify it under creative commons – just need to find precisely the right category – suggestions in that department are welcome, feel free to leave a comment).
