Today is a day to reflect on independence, not just in the United States of America, but in the
Northern Mariana Islands, Rwanda and the Philippines. Of course, the freedom we enjoy the most at the Museum of the Weird is the freedom of expression. It is wonderful to be able to explore the weird and wonderful mysteries and to ponder them, even when our views might not be in the majority opinion.
If you celebrate today, we hope that it is a grand holiday. If not, we hope that you find an opportunity to express your own weirdness.
I can’t just leave you like this, however. While I go fire up the grill (and prepare for a night of party palm-reading) here are some bizarre tales about our forefathers, The macabre legacy of the heroes of the American Revolution, written this time last year on the site strangeremains.com. They were pretty weird 200 years ago as well!
