A Very Fat Man, a Slender Man Monster & a Strong Woman
Happy New Year and may it be as Weird, Wacky and Wonderfully strange as you wish it to be. A good place to start that journey is by listening to Ripley Radio, the official radio show of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! every week in 2014! It’s Wacky guaranteed. This week, James Taylor, our sideshow historian talks with us about Bruce Snowden, the last Fat Man to work the carnival midways of America and Chad Lewis, our intrepid reporter unveils the monster that we all need to be on the look-out for this year – the Slender Man Monster, who was born on the internet. A strange story indeed.
