This Week in Weird News:
Ever Wanted to Look
Like Angelina Jolie?
By Kevin Christian L. Santos
Hey gang! Weirdness doesn’t go on a break even in the holiday season, it just works overtime. Maybe it’s the Christmas season making the planets align and showering us with all sorts of WTFs, giving us more reasons why aliens won’t visit us.
Here’s the weirdest stuff going on this week! Starting with…
Teen undergoes surgery to look like Angelina Jolie, now looks exactly like her
An Iranian teenager has reportedly undergone 50 different surgical procedures to look like her idol, Angelina Jolie. As you can see, GREAT SUCCESS!
Nineteen-year-old Sahar Tabar said she would do anything just to look like Jolie. In addition, Al-Arabiya reports that Tabar even went on a diet just so she could maintain her 40kg weight for her transformation.
This is what she looked like before:
The teenager has gained quite a following on her Instagram because of her transformation. But the reception wasn’t all positive. One person called her a “zombie” and the “Crypt Keeper in drag.” This is the internet after all, where it’s full of polite and responsible individuals.
But seriously, holy shit.

Woman gets eyeball tattoo, needs to have said eyeball removed because surprise
The 24-year old said “There is hemorrhage and sclera tearing from the size of needle used, depth and amount if ink. They are also concerned that the equipment was not sterile and that there is an infection stuck in with the excess ink. People, please, don’t make my mistake. Please.” She was in extreme pain and her eye got swollen shut, causing her to lose her vision shortly after the procedure.
Interestingly enough, it was Gallinger’s ex-boyfriend who did the tattoo. He said the side effects were normal and then dumped her after. Why? Because he’s a shitheel.
Yetis might be fake because nothing is sacred anymore
Because we can’t have nice things, the yeti/Bigfoot/Abominable Snowman/your hairy ex might just be a bear after all these years.
Biologist Charlotte Lindqvist analysed DNA found from “yeti” bones in the Himalayas. She didn’t find Bigfoot, but found that the specimens belonged to bears and one dog.
In the British science journal Proceedings Of The Royal Society B, Lindqvist said that the bones belonged to black and brown bears living in the region.
To make us feel better from our collective disappointment, Lindqvist said “You can never for sure prove that there is nothing out there.”
People filmed a nude game of tag in a Nazi concentration camp because they’re assholes
A video showcasing a naked game of tag in a concentration camp as a visual art performance has, unsurprisingly, sparked widespread outrage.
The video was shot in 1999 by Polish visual artist Artur Zmijewski and was filmed at Stutthof concentration camp, near Gdansk, Poland. 65,000 people died in the said site.
The film, titled “Game of Tag,” was exhibited in Krakow in 2015 and was met with protest. Filming of the exact location was not known until this year. Protesters are now asking on the president of Poland to explain why the filming was allowed in the first place.
