You Had Me at Creepy-Ass

Imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled upon this hilarious little book by Stacey Leigh Brooks in the new book section at my local library. There it was, squeezed in between larger and more serious books, on the art and craft shelf.  I couldn't help but be intrigued by the creepy-ass title.

This book reminds me of the awkward family photo web site where entertainment abounds with nothing more than a simple photo combined with a humorous caption. Instead of actual people, the subject here is toys made to resemble people. And boy are they creepy!

Who among us hasn't been creeped out by one of these so-called playthings at some point in their life? I was reminded of my own creepy-ass doll experience that I blogged about here.

If you want to experience more creepy-ass dolls, check out the creepy-ass dolls Tumblr site.

Who Knew? Seriously.
