hall of oddities

So you've had your appetite whetted by the Potted Meat Museum (as seen here), been mildly puzzled by the Toaster Museum, and found yourself subtly repulsed by the Mountain Dew Memorabilia Museum. You've stumbled through the sparsely populated halls of The Ohio Power Transformers Museum, and wondered why exactly Martin has so many owls. Once, on a dare, you sneaked a look at the AOL CD Preservation Guild and Museum, and came away with only a lingering pain in your knee when the wind is from the south.

And yet there you are, spending nights alone, bathed in the blue glow of the screen, wondering where you can find more disturbing collections. Fine, here.

Museumspot has an "offbeat" listing ('course, some of these are actual, rather than virtual, and would entail leaving the alluring blue screen and going...outside.)

Yeah, scrim, this is great. I probably wouldn't have clicked on the main link by itself, and if I had, might've backed out as it's visually unappealing, but you included enough direct links to whet my appetite. Well done.
