What’s The Weirdest Thing You’ve Seen in Someone’s House?

When British Gas got in touch, sharing a strange story with me about how one of their technical engineers was called out to a home that had 300 birds and nearly a dozen fish tanks  (video below) I was immediately fascinated.

I love weird… some may even say I’m a little weird myself. Only a little though! 😉

It got me to thinking, what is the weirdest thing that I’ve seen in someone’s home? I think I will share two things with you that come to my mind, the first is a bit personal whilst the second will no doubt make you laugh…

SERIOUS: Home Hoarding Disorders

Without going into too much detail I know someone who probably has OCD on throwing things away. They have piled up boxes, boards and broken, outdated items in a corner and keep them ‘just in case’… and I always wonder, in case of what exactly? When will you use that ripped/broken/unusable item again?

I understand it’s a disorder and so I don’t judge, however I’d simply say it was a little strange…

FUNNY: It’s a Hippopotamus!

Although I’ve not seen this with my own eyes, the scene from An Idiot Abroad is just constantly coming to my mind. It makes me laugh so much because it’s just simply absurd. In case you’ve not seen it here’s the scene below…

So, what’s the weirdest thing that you’ve seen in someone’s home?
