You mentioned "Freaked." Did you mean "Freaks," Tod Browning's 1930's carny epic? That's a favorite of mine.
And I haven't even THOUGHT about the Butthole Surfers in a very long time...
Mike, I live in Louisville, hometown of director Tod Browing, the man who gave us "Dracula" (1931) and "Freaks" (1932). But I'm pretty sure the prop I saw in The Museum of the Weird was from a movie called "Freaked" (1993) Brooke Shields.
Louisville is also today the new NCAA champions! Had to rub that in. lol
Someone also mentioned the Todd Browning movie "Freaks." You didn't get to see this when you were here Rod, but I do in fact have a life-sized wax figure of Prince Randian (aka The Caterpillar Man) who appeared in the film.
Thanks for the fantastic article!
I'm glad the readers here enjoyed the story and I encourage all of you to experience Museum of the Weird yourselves when in Austin. Please tell Robert if you enjoyed this article, because more articles on roadside attractions and smaller, unique, non-Disney attractions are certainly possible.
