ODDITIES – TROMA TERATOMA?

please tell us, WHAT DO YOU THINK?? is it too much? to gross? too extreme to search for and film a TROMA TERATOMA?   tromemoir@gmail.com

I love the Discovery Channel Show Oddities.   This show has revived my respect for reality TV.  Set close to home in Brooklyn, this show follows bizzaro commerce Co-owners Mike Zohn and Evan Michelson have created in their shop  Obscura Antiques .   “Buyer” Ryan Matthew is always running around to “old friends” who might be able to sell him a shriveled cat mummy, or Grade A monkey skull, for the strangest customers.

So great, you ask, what does this have to do with Troma?  Well, I was having dinner with pops the other night after he finished his PSA for Peta (Don’t even get me started) The commercial featured humans dressed like animals in cages, (so in other words they weren’t clothed) and they were miserable, the point being, don’t put animals in cages, using Troma Shock Style to get the message across.

So over dinner, I asked dad, what’s up next? We got onto subhumanoid props for filming, and since he has his loyal allegiance to Peta, and he will not use any animal parts, but what would be really grotesque, really shocking?  so we got to the subject of TROMA TERATOMAS.

In case you are not familiar with Teratomas, these are benign tumors which can develop TEETH and HAIR and can be safely extracted from the human body! Gross but fascinating, and quite ODD.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teratoma Where oh where would one find a TROMA TERATOMA?? and it hit me  this just might be the type of thing Ryan Matthew could run around to one of his “Old Friends” to find in his fabulous shop of oddities.  Furthermore, they had recently run a “Scary Medical Devices” feature.
