Do You Believe in Ripley?

Do you believe in “Ripley’s Believe it Or Not!”
Since 1918 Ripley’s have been challenging the human condition by testing belief, trying honor and tempting our darker side with unknown and wanton wishings.


The larger question is why have Ripley’s wacky truths and fictions entertained us for so long?

Do we feel superior in finding entertainment in the troubles of others?

When we see madness in action — do we become more grounded in our own realities?

Why do we tempt the circus freak show, the wax museum, and the evergreen day of the April Fool?
