Whether it's because we know that variety is the spice of life or because we just want something to talk about at our next cocktail party, one thing is clear: We spend a lot of time searching for weird stuff on the Web. That's why we appreciate oddee.com, a blog dedicated to photographs of superlative oddities. An entry called "World's Strangest Furniture" includes funky pillows shaped like Scrabble tiles and a bed made out of an old Chevy Impala. "World's Wackiest Festivals" features El Colacho, a Spanish festival in which costumed men leap over groups of adorable infants (with parental consent), as well as the Australian Tunarama, which culminates in a fish tossing contest. A few of the site's entries are a little mean, not to mention subjective. As any born-and-bred Bostonian gal knows, Aerosmith hottie Steven Tyler most certainly does not belong on a list called "20 Ugliest Celebrities"!
