The internet may have pretty much taken over the magazine business entirely, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few still fighting it out in the big bad publication business. And some of these fighters, much like a fighter who gets drunk at the bar, gets super violent and aimlessly starts yelling how his mom is the best in the world, would weird you the EFF out.
Here are some of the world's most bizarre, and yet, 100% real magazines for your amusement. Did I mention they were completely real? 'Cause they are. Enjoy.
1. Miniature Donkey Talk Magazine
Is this really a magazine that talks about miniature donkeys, or a magazine about miniature donkeys THAT TALK?! Who can say for sure..? Weirdos who buy it can.
2. Portable Restroom Operator Magazine
Yes. Now, the next time you want to refer to yourself as a 'PRO', it'll be ruined by the fact that that's the name of a magazine about folks that deal in mobile shitting equipment.
3. Cranes Today Magazine
The Cranes Today Magazine talks about cranes. Today. Which is, I presume, fascinatingly different from cranes yesterday. Or the day before.
4. Private Islands Magazine
A magazine about private islands?! Seriously. Who's buying this? The richest 1 per cent of the world's population? They don't need a magazine telling 'em what to do with their money! They hire PROs to do that! (not that kinda PRO, though)
5. Sheep! Magazine
Umm. Okay. Even if I overlooked the fact that they created a whole publication for sheep, what on EARTH is that exclamation mark about?! Who is this excited about SHEEP? People literally count this very animal when they're trying to fall asleep!
6. OMFG Magazine (Official Meeting Facilities Guide)
While, upon closer inspection, this may seem like a legit magazine about people who like to hold a lot of meetings, its abbreviated title - OMFG - is enough for it to belong on this list. Imagine all the people who bought an issue, and only realised once they got home that it's not about millennials texting each other with gossip about who hooked up with whom.
7. Modern Drunkard Magazine
Alright, admit it, some of you are thinking, 'Hey, I'd subscribe to this one.' And I don't blame you. This classic monthly publication dedicated to 'alcohol aficionados' is truly a gem of the educated society!
8. Serial Killer Magazine
Dedicated to all the true tales of murder and madness, and to the creeps that just can't get enough of 'em. Because why the EFF not. Right?
9. Fashion Doll Magazine
And speaking of Creepytown! Dolls donning the latest designs, posing like dead, plastic models and going about their plastic-y doll lives is just what we need as a society that has a Serial Killer Magazine!
10. Spudman Magazine
The most trusted voice in the potato industry. Except the only other voices in the potato industry are probably inside this guy's head. Just saying.
11. Potato Review Magazine
I stand corrected. THIS is the other voice in the potato industry. No wonder Spudman Magazine is still around. If they folded (pun intended), then Potato Review would be the most trusted voice around. And all of the voices in my head are telling me not to trust it.
12. I Love Cats Magazine
Umm. I guess I get it. But the existence of this magazine definitely raises more questions than it answers. Like, 'Seriously?' And, 'Was the internet not ENOUGH?'
13. Emu Today & Tomorrow Magazine
Just one thing. Why not the day after tomorrow as well? Are emu farmers around the world kinda into planning ahead but not too much?
14. The Croquet Gazette Magazine
Okay, we're all thinking it. This magazine is not only infuriatingly niche, but it's name is like Sean Bean's! It feels like the words should rhyme, but they just... don't.
15. Model Airplane News Magazine
Oh. Yeah. Please, I need all of the news about tiny versions of airplanes that nobody can actually fly in! Phshh.
16. Lighthouse Digest Magazine
Why? Just why?
17. Twins Magazine
They're siblings that look alike. Sometimes not even that. How the EFF did they create an entire magazine about them? And it's been around since 1984! What is the world coming to!
18. Girls And Corpses Magazine
Yes, it's for real. Yes, yes, I saved the best for last. So if you're looking to prank your conservative relatives with the subscription to a magazine that could potentially scar them for life... you're welcome.
Because there really is no end to just how weird this amazing, horrifying world of ours can be.
