First things first – I find wax museums and wax museum replica humans to be super creepy. I almost passed up on sharing this, but I figured if a wax figure of Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas creeped me out, maybe it will do the same to someone else. If you’re into wax museums, you can catch Fergie and other creepers at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at Venetian . If we ever play hide and seek and you want to win, just... Read more
