Elvis Presley corner.

Museum of the Odd

Field review by the editors.

Lawrence, Kansas

Randy "Honey Boy" Walker has filled his home "Museum of the Odd" with his collections, which include over 350 sock monkeys and Elvis Presley artifacts that include his hair, a toe nail, and piece of sheet he slept on.

Other items of note include his collection of antique circus freak trading cards; ashtrays and lamps made of animal limbs; photographs of corpses in their coffins; and a hunk of elephant dung painted and shaped to resemble Adolf Hitler.

Randy charges a modest fee for a personal tour, which seems reasonable given that visitors might otherwise miss something important, such as his collection of cow hairballs.
