Family Lives With Plastic Skeletons and It's Totally Normal

J.W. Ocker, author, webmaster of Oddest Things I've Seen and Halloween enthusiast (he and his family celebrate for a month and a half!), posted photos of his newest family members -- plastics skeletons called "T" and "C" -- and their normal, everyday lives. We just had to wonder what kind of lovely life he and his family must live...

A New Friend

A New Friend

Surprise! New friend Carl is here. (We can only assume the "C" stands for Carl because Carl is the name of the son on Walking Dead and how nicely does it roll off the tongue? Only cool skeletons are named Carl.)



The Nightmare Before Christmas is their favorite film to watch together, for obvious reasons. Because everyone loves Christmas, duh!

Eating Breakfast

Eating Breakfast

They get a kick out of ironic cereal.

Dinner Time


The upside to being a skeleton chef? You can't get burned.

Running Errands


A skeleton driving is a much safer alternative. We think?

Hanging Decorations

Hanging Decorations

Don't be deceived. The skeleton in the middle isn't decor -- that's just sweet 'ol Carl.

Movies Night

Watching Movies

They try to avoid thrillers like Night of the Living Dead and The Skeleton Key.

Household Chores

Mowing the Lawn

Without muscle mass we're not sure how Carl can mow the lawn, but we'll ask the questions after the yard work is done.

Time to Relax

Pool-Side Relaxing

Without the floatie there could be disastrous consequences.


Trick or Treating

Because sheet-cut-out-like-a-ghost seemed too cliche.
