The Worst House On The Internet
Remember when you went trick-or-treating and there was always that one house on the block that gave out the worst treats? Now everyone on the Internet can re-experience that same feeling of Halloween disappointment. You’re welcome!

Ring our virtual doorbell and who knows what underwhelming surprise you might get.

Could be a link to the Santa Clause 3 soundtrack. Or 80% off a motion-activated toilet nightlight.

But some of the treats are physical. Like a single plastic spoon. The tags you're not supposed to pull off a mattress. Or 23g of glitter. And yes, if you claim a treat, we will mail it to you.

Happy Halloween!

I got the crowdsourced re-creation of Shrek. I am ... not displeased.

Ha ha ha. I got a live website of grass growing, complete with Rocky music. That made my entire day.

I got a a wonder that I would never have imagined!

This is a great collection of things, and a very nice presentation for it!

I love this and (in a nerdy, self-serving way) I'm super interested in how a company culture supports projects like these.

My first click, a website about He-Man singing, crashed and rebooted my phone hard enough that I was starting to worry I'd need a new phone. Good game worst house.

I got a recipe for chocolate salami. Because the only thing worse than getting a dicey halloween treat is only getting a recipe for said dicey treat that I will have to make myself before I can crinkle my nose at it. Thank you, Worst House!

If one of these doesn't go to the story of Groverhaus then it can't truly be The Worst House on the Internet.

I got a child's dance recital from the '90s. I won't know what my partner got until it arrives, apparently...

I got a signed photo of Alec Baldwin. Given the recent news, that's actually vaguely creepy....

I got a free craigslist offer of an 80lb sack of concrete. Nice deal if I lived in New York.

I got how to do the Carolina Shag, which I thought might be a seabird or else some sort of weird sexual practice, but turned out to be a dance.

Looks like I got three bags of assorted coat hangers, which is actually something I could use.
