NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Parents always have the weirdest crap stashed away at their houses.

That’s what Brooklyn-based comedian Joel Dovev realized one day when he was visiting his mom and dad and noticed their mantle covered in Jewish knick-knacks with a random model pirate ship at the center.

Dovev wondered if his parents were secretly “Jewish pirates” and from there, he created crapatmyparentshouse.com, a blog featuring the strangest stuff people find at their parents’ digs.

So far, the most bizarre submissions include a “slightly racist” lawn ornament, a stuffed raccoon, an owl sculpture made entirely out of seashells, and odd religious items hanging on walls.

Dovev says his favorite crap is the kitsch displayed in common areas like the living room, although parents often keep their weirdest gems buried in the garage or basement.

He figures parents collect tasteless stuff because they don’t like throwing anything away that may have even an ounce of sentimental value.
