Fans of the celebrated author M. C. Escher will be familiar with the curl-up, a fictional creature which can curl up into a wheel and roll around. Today’s weird things, courtesy of Barry, are two realizations (of sorts) of the curl-up: “M.C.Escher’s Curl-Up Animal Constructed!” and “Escher Collection Curl Up (Completed) Item picture1”. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and ask your friendly neighborhood genetic engineer to make a live curl-up.
