Barbie Head Shoes

More strange Barbie stuff. Included in footwear designer Jeffrey Campbell's summer 2013 collection are shoes that have clear, lucite heels filled with the heads of Barbie dolls. There's also a version filled with Ken heads. Of course, these shoes are now all the rage in Japan. [via RocketNews24]

Barbie - now with acne!

Strange Barbie dolls have been a recurring theme here at WU. We've seen scaled-up Barbie, makeup-free Barbie, non-human Barbie, Ancient Minoan culture illustrated with Barbie, Virgin Mary Barbie doll, etc.

So the latest strange Barbie in the news doesn't even seem all that strange, by comparison. It's "Normal Barbie." Created by artist Nickolay Lamm, this doll (which he's calling Lammily), is designed with measurements similar to those of an average 19-year old woman. Also, it comes with stickers allowing you to customize it with freckles, stretch marks, acne, moles, cellulite, and blushing cheeks.

God Manifests as an Elephant

Nipper, the corn-eating cat


Nipper, cat owned by Dorothy Brinn, likes to eat his corn in comfort. His mistress fixed up this skewer and Nipper uses it for about two ears a day. The cat, a corn addict since his kitten days, likes it best with butter.
