The Minister of Propaganda

Space pics. Luchadores. Oddities from around the web. Odd ramblings.

These are two of the more interesting human oddities, and not because of medical anomalies. 

George and Willie Muse were kidnapped and taken to the circus at a young age, and worked for Al G. Barnes for 28 years without pay. During their time as sideshow performers they were billed as ‘White Ecuadorian Cannibals,’ ‘Sheep-Headed Men,’ ‘Sheep-Headed Cannibals’ and, famously, ‘The Ambassadors from Mars.’ They were trained to play musical instruments, and after being rescued by their mother they continued to tour as a musical/oddity act. Willie Muse died in 1971, while George Muse hung around until 2001 when he died at 108.
