Hey guys guess what? I just got a peek of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Special Edition 2011, and it is freakishly epic! Oh and remember the guy on the cover, you know, “Tigerface”?
Don’t freak. It’s just a face-painting. You haven’t seen that book yet, for it contains stuff like:
A dude with a third ear (on his arm)!
A 29-inch Chinese dude who meets an English lady whose legs are 52 inches ALONE! :O
A guy who makes Barack Obama out of 12, 743 gumballs!
Among many, many more!
But, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not has actually bought something so absurd, it deserves to be in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Special Edition 2012…it’s an M&M Eminem!
The amazing dude who made this masterpiece is actually a candy artist, Enrique Ramos, to be exact. This was made out of more than 1,000 M&Ms alone, and measures 40 inches by 30 inches, weighing just eight pounds. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! was so amused from the painting that they bought it for an undisclosed amount for their Odditorium. Hopefully, they’ll have some AC down there!
“This thing looks good enough to eat!” says Tim O’ Brien, the vice president of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! I can’t speak to all Eminem fanboys and fangirls, but I won’t be having a 40-inch Eminem out of M&M’s for dessert anytime sooner. No, thank you.
But the portrait isn’t alone. Its friends, gumball Michael Jackson and lint Princess Diana have joined the sugary MC as well.
If it actually made it into the 2012 edition, I’d call it ‘Sugary Star‘. What would YOU call it? Comment or email me your title for this sugary dude!
If you want, check out Ripley’s site for more weird epicness. Like Ripley said himself before he died, “Nothing’s stranger than the truth.”
Believe it or not, Sam is signing out. PEACE!
