And don’t miss the second set of pictures and quotes below.

Then again, maybe we’ve always been weird:

“I’m very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish their sentences.” ~Graham Parke

“I’d rather be a little weird than all boring.” ~Rebecca McKinsey

I am sure some of you are looking at me and thinking, ‘Well, at least I am not as weird as you,’ and I am thinking, ‘Well, at least I am not as weird as the people in the loony bin,’ and the people in the loony bin are thinking, ‘Well, at least I am an orange’.” ~Jim Gaffigan

“We look at each other with shy relief. It’s the look two odd socks give when they recognize each other in the wild.” ~Fiona Wood

“When any worthwhile thing is done in the world, it’s usually done by somebody weird.” ~John Sandford

“What makes you different or weird—that’s your strength.” ~Meryl Streep

“Nobody feels normal. Everybody just thinks everybody else does.”

~Healing River

    Well, there’s some strange photographs there, Mitch, but the way this year is going, nothing will surprise me anymore.

  11. Surprisingly i was also thinking the same but funnily not funny as in India suddenly beef eaters became criminals and started getting more priority clearance from earth,
    Media started giving verdicts on sensitive cases,we doctors are now acquiring same status and treatment of a woman (no rights only duties), being poor was always curse but being resourceful is also becoming the reason of rage from society,,,,and thus madness has no ends it seems🙄

      Humans will generally find any and all excuses to mistake mental instability for equilibrium. It’s up to the sane and rational to find a way to balance it out. May the Lord bless your work, and make your enemies blind to your existence.

    There’s weird, and then there’s downright kooky. Thanks, as always, for sharing. Lord knows we need more humor in the world right now.

    The world has absolutely gotten weirder. However, these are not the kind of photos I was expecting and that’s a good thing. I needed a funny diversion from what I was expecting.

    To answer your question, yes! And by looking at the pictures (great laughs) and reading the quotes. I’ve been called weird (and like it), but it appears I have a long way to go to be the weirdest. 😏
