I went looking on Roadside America for Weirdness Wednesdays; I found one about cryptids* that will take me some time to do a good job as it’s a list of twenty (20) items. I’m planning on working on those for a future Weirdness Wednesdays post.
*cryptids – Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptids
Entities that may be considered cryptids by cryptozoologists include Bigfoot, the chupacabra, or Mokele-mbembe. Related pseudosciences include Young Earth creationism, ghost hunting, and ufology. Some dictionaries and encyclopedias define the term “cryptid” as an animal whose existence is unsubstantiated.
Instead, I decided today’s Weirdness Wednesdays post would be about Tree Stump Sandwich Eater – https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/60934. At some point, the tree stump was near the High Street Deli in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The deli appears to still be operating, but I found very few photos of the tree stump in numerous online searches.
