The new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Dare to Look! Will be coming out next month on the 10th.
It is just as good or maybe even better than the Download The Weird one from last year. Those folks at Ripley’s sure keep themselves busy looking for weird stuff. And this year they found plenty!
One of the items in the book was about a squirrel that got caught in a manhole. The poor critter stuck his head through a hole and couldn’t get out apparently.
Another one that I really liked was about a man who made his own hobbit house out of balloons.
There are more than 200 pages of oddities and lots of pictures of weird things and people. Some pictures taken of people who have had their faces pulled out of shape with tape are pretty neat, and there is a fellow who put a bunch of pegs on his face.
Then are the crazy kids who climb high buildings to take pictures of themselves standing on the edge. I got dizzy just looking at the picture.
And there is a fold out section all about ventriloquists and the dummies they used as well as the only ventriloquism museum in the world.
It took me several days to look through the book and read over most of the entries. I really only skimmed it (mostly looking at the pictures) so I still have lots of odd stuff to check out. This is a really great book to keep out for company. Kids will especially love it.
This one also has the oddSCAN™ stuff in it too. If you have the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! app on your phone you can scan pictures or special icons to get downloadable content such as videos or extra pictures.
