So, apparently some people are really into their Edgar Allen Poe.  And into historical reenactments.  And have too much time on their hands.  (Or too much money.  Spread the love!)

Really, though, I have nothing against Poe.  The man scared the bejeepers out of me with The Telltale Heart in whichever grade it was we read it.

But seriously?  Commissioning a wax replica of the man so you can have a viewing?

The dude’s been dead for a century or more!

It’s just one of those things that strikes me as infinitely odd.  And yet, everyone has their interests and this is definitely something that would set a person apart from the uninteresting masses.

I’m not bitter about anything.  Why do you ask?
