What weird things do you discover at your parents' house when you return for your annual Thanksgiving meal? Figurines, creepy dolls, seashell soap, or strange paintings, perhaps? Jenn, who works for Cards Against Humanity, asked for pictures of weird stuff people found in their parents' homes over the holiday, and the Internet delivered.
"Please show me pictures of weird stuff in your parents' house," she asked and then clarified, "I want to see the seashells in the bathrooms people."
It turns out that people's parents had a LOT of strange, charming, and ridiculous objects lying around their houses.
This one wasn't quite a seashell in the bathroom, but it was in the same category.
I see your seashell soap dish and raise you one lobster soap creation.
This guy doesn’t even live in a soap dish… he lives in his very own lobster cage.
Jenn replied and said, “In a cage even!!!” but people from Maine were quick to set her straight. Tiffany Anne wrote, “LOL @ “cage” It’s a “trap” or a “pot” Sincerely, Grew Up In Maine”
Twitter user Amuly21 shared three of the objects in their parents' curious collection.
They are a standing suit of armor, a Shakespeare bust that opens a hidden door when you tilt its head backward, and a larger than life penguin statue. “WONDERFUL TRIO,” Jenn approved. Twitter agreed that these objects look like they belong in the house of Batman or maybe the Addams’ Family.
Twitter user ZacBruin revealed this truly creepy version of Santa that lives in his parents' home.
If this almost-adult-sized, shoeless Santa robot wasn’t creepy enough on its own, take a gander at what it does when you turn it on. Zac added, “You can press a button and in a scary gravelly old man voice he says ‘Soak soak soak my aching feet’ and the legs/feet move up and down.'”
Deana's mom still has this turtle planter that Jenn gave to her when she was just six years old.
His odd and adorable face with those buck teeth made this quite a distinct Mothers’ Day present. Deana said, “I liked him then. I like him now. 35 years together.”
Tom Buell's step-dad has an expansive clown collection.
Here we were, thinking that everyone on this earth was terrified of clowns. Either Tom’s stepdad is immune to this fear or he enjoys being afraid each time he steps into his living room. Tom said, “There isn’t one that isn’t a nightmare.”
People were nowhere near finished sharing their parents’ quirky decorations.
