Tree Stump Sandwich Eater at High Street Deli, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania – Weirdness Wednesdays April 3, 2019

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.


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 – 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.
