Recently, we asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the strangest things they've ever seen in a guy's home. Here are the horrifying results:
1. A Spitball Graveyard
He had a spitball dartboard in his living room, and if that’s not gross enough, the ones that had come unstuck and fallen were piled up on the discolored carpet below.
2. An Indoor Pond
This guy I was friends with had a 6-foot-wide pond — complete with lily pads, fish, turtles, and a gnome water fixture — sitting on cinder blocks in the center of his living room.
3. A Dirty Dish Bathtub
The guest bathroom had a bathtub filled to the brim with dirty dishes.
4. Coffee Filter Toilet Paper
A friend of mine went to the bathroom at a guy's house and noticed there wasn’t any toilet paper, so she walked out and asked him if she could get some. He let her know he didn’t have toilet paper, but she could use COFFEE FILTERS to wipe!
5. A Bathroom Quesadilla
Some guys had a 3-month-old quesadilla that sat on a shelf above the toilet, affectionately and appropriately named “the bathroom quesadilla.”
6. A Bath Mat Garden
I dated a guy once who had an actual mushroom growing from his bath mat next to the shower.
7. A Mother–Son Saloon Portrait
I was sort of casually seeing this guy for a while, and when I walked into the bedroom for the first time, I was greeted by a giant portrait of him and his mother dressed in old-fashioned Western wear right above the bed! He said his mom wouldn't allow him to take it down.
8. An "Open Concept" Apartment
I went to a guy's apartment one time and found a pile of doors in the living room — all the interior doors had been removed and stacked together. The bathroom door had been replaced with a curtain, but the others had no barrier.
9. A Refrigerator Collection
I once visited a guy who had a fridge in every room — like, normal-size fridges in the hallway, bedroom, living room, bathroom, etc. He said he liked cold snacks and drinks and didn't like going to the kitchen every time.
10. A Meat Hook
A butcher's meat hook mounted on the wall. It creeped me the hell out, but I still married him!
11. A Couch Sandwich
I sat down on a guy's questionable couch and felt something under the cushion. I lifted it up and found an entire sandwich on a plate. Who knows how old it was or why it was there.
12. This Very Strange Collection
Some of the decorations in my friend's house include: a 4-foot-tall authentic tiki head with a revolving multicolored light behind it; a life-size cutout of John Wayne that lives in the bathroom and is painted bright orange; three mannequin heads, one mannequin torso, and a pair of mannequin arms; a clown mask on a turntable; a ceiling light with blue and black lightbulbs with some of those silver Bacardi bats attached; and an oil painting of an orangutan snuggling a clown. Every time we go to visit, there's something new.
13. A Human Skeleton
An actual, real skeleton. It was displayed in an upright coffin.
14. Pickled Pinkie
A human pinkie finger in a jar on the kitchen table. Side note: It was his.
15. This Keepsake
His dead girlfriend's Rabbit vibrator.
16. DIY Underwear
Paper bag underwear. He made them because he was into "fashion." They even had names like "The Mowgli" and "The Cowboy."
17. DIY Shower Curtain
Upon entering my best friend's roommate's bathroom, I noticed he had his shower curtain hung up with literal clothes hangers. He said, "Why pay for shower curtain rings when I have hangers already?"
18. A Photo Hung With Care
A small framed photo of Nosferatu on the ceiling of his living room.
19. Just a Big Ol' Pile of Antlers
My boyfriend collects antlers and has a pile of them as decoration.
20. An Interesting Collection of Animals
I went to a party at a guy’s house while in college, and he had a mummified cat on his mantle and a pet snake he wore around his neck at all times.
21. Pickled Deer
When we went to move my sister in with her fiancé, he had a large pickle jar that was the watery grave of a fetal deer.
22. A Crucified Elf
23. A Stuffed Puppy
He had a stuffed puppy. Like, one that was once alive.
24. Spam Jerky
An uncovered plate of dry, curling sliced Spam in the fridge. I said, "You know, there's this stuff called Saran Wrap...or Tupperware," to which he responded, "I like it that way. It's Spam jerky."
25. Shower Snacks
I was taking a shower at my boyfriend's house, and there were Peppermint Patties by the soap.
26. A Stripper Room
I was sleeping over at an ex's house, and in the early morning, I got up to use the washroom. I wasn't very familiar with his house yet, and when I opened the door to what I thought was the bathroom, I stumbled into what can only be described as a stripper memorabilia room. There was a single recliner in the middle of the room and the walls were covered floor-to-ceiling in signed stripper posters. There was also a dresser which displayed postcards, photos, lighters, and various other knickknacks from — you guessed it — strippers.
27. Houdini the Python
He had a studio apartment and had a raised bed. I just thought, “Cool, he needs storage.” And then he lifted up the comforter to show me his pet python. It lived in a cage under his bed. It was 5 feet long. Its name was Houdini because it liked to escape.
