Museums across the U.S. are sharing photos of their #CreepiestObject and people are loving it

Including a bigfoot's butt print.

Here is a social media challenge we can get behind while laughing our tails off: #CreepiestObject asks all museum curators to share the, well, creepiest art they have on display across their various exhibits.

The Twitter hashtag was started by the Yorkshire Museum in England (to get the party started, the venue posted a photo of a 3rd or 4th century hair bun from the burial of a Roman lady) and immediately took off globally. Below, we round up some of the most hilarious challenge entries—including a bigfoot's butt print, a hair wreath and a very scary-looking doll—while we come to terms with the fact that art can, indeed, be downright weird sometimes.
