What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Battle of the Creepy Curators

8 Comments

I have a high school friend with a delightfully-perverse sense of humor. She is often my source for anything creepy-crawly-related, and today’s discovery is all thanks to her. Thanks, JB!

I have posted before about (positive) Twitter wars between zoos, and social media challenges issued by museums, but this one is like nothing you’ve seen. Ever. Seriously.

This time, museums are challenging each another to post their #CreepiestObject. Started by the Yorkshire Museum, who kicked off the competition with the disembodied bun of a Roman woman (complete with hairpins still attached), which looks like a cross between this thing and the world’s least appealing cinnamon roll.

You can see all the hilariously-terrible entries on the #CreepiestObject hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

    • Me too. I don’t think people understand that the state of our world right now just does not need any of this. Some just have no idea how much evil is really out there.

      • I have never understood why we have Halloween. If you go back to the 1700 and 1800s we burned witches. There were considered evil. I think the candy companies created the day to sell more candy. I refuse to help them. I agree with you there are so many bad things going on in both the USA and the rest of the world we don’t need any of this. I also think the true meaning of Christmas has got lost thanks to companies selling their products. Hal

  2. I always enjoy these museum battles. It does not surprise me at all that so many dolls are featured in the contest for creepiest object. The Roman bun is actually really fascinating. I don’t want to own it but I love that it is in a museum. I actually own my husband’s great-great-aunt’s plaited hair. As the family historian, I have inherited all manner of odds and sods. The braided hair is my least favourite thing I have been given to archive.

  3. As one tweet stated: “Museums the world over are trying to outdo each other with the creepiest items in their archives. And the results are guaranteed to haunt your dreams.” So true.
