What is WeirdGood?
Weirdgood is the site that chronicles those instances when the awesome collides with the bizarre and you just can’t look away. Weirdgood is chocolate-covered bacon. It’s zombie apocalypse survival training. It’s a feeling. It’s a state of mind. You can’t always describe it, but you know it when you see it.
There is an infinite amount of awesome out there on the internet. But there’s also a lot of sites that waste your time (spam, pop-up ads for hairplugs, the list goes on). And who has the time to sift through it all? Weirdgood does the work for you. We scour the web to find you all the strangely cool food, technology, art, fashion and locales that you can handle. Weirdgood is your go-to site for funny misfits, crazy hybrids, unique oddities and intriguing hijinks. You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, you’ll call it Weirdgood.
