I could go on, but you get the idea. If you groove on true but oddball stories like these, then don't walk . . . run to Jim Romenesko's Obscure Store & Reading Room, which has been an Internet fixture for almost as long as there's been an Internet.Click here for more.
My personal faves are the stories, posted with stupefying regularity, about people finding weird stuff in their food and motorists mistaking the accelerator pedal for the break pedal.
Wile you're there, drop a duckat or two in Jim's tip jar.

Police finding a severed hand in a jar at a stripper's home . . .
