weirdWhen you’ve spent almost two years writing about the weird (and sometimes wonderful) things in the world, you get a bit of a reputation. And then because of that reputation, people send you emails with suggestions of things to write about.

And suddenly, you’ve become a hoarder of WTF. Your virtual mailbox becomes this thing with a life of its own, and you find yourself faced with a real dilemma — start throwing things away, or come up with a solution.

So this week, we’re going to clear out the old mailbag of weird so I can get to WTF inbox zero for exactly 15 minutes. Ready to read? Let’s go. (more…)

You get this view. And 55 cats.

Hey guys do you like Greece? Do you like cats? Do you like lots of cats at once? Do you like free rent and Greece and lots of cats?

RealtorNobody starts housing hunting thinking, “You know, I think I want a house that smells like a giant litter box,” but that’s what one Florida couple says they got with their home purchase — all thanks to the Realtor that listed it.

Newlyweds Daniel McKay and Katherine Pulker closed on their home in Valrico, Florida, in April. According to the suit they filed in Hillsborough Circuit Court on July 20 (sidebar: Hillsborough Circuit Court, I love your case lookup, Dallas and everyone else, please review this because yeah, way better), everything seemed fine until they removed the plug-in air fresheners.

Wednesday WTF

Don’t get catty – while this house looks normal on the outside, there’s plenty of Wednesday WTF on the inside. We promise.

We’ve been doing these Wednesday WTF features for a few weeks now and we think this is the first to render the writer nearly catatonic.

If you like cats, you’re in luck with this home in Concho, Ariz. If you don’t, this Wednesday WTF may disturb you.

But join us right meow over on MidlandDirt.com, won’t you?
