Photos: Ten weirdest Colorado items found in FOUND Magazine, 2014 edition
Back in 2012, Kelsey Whipple shared a collection of ten strange Colorado items from FOUND Magazine, a website and book series that specialize in notes, letters and photos sent in by folks from across the country -- many of them hilarious, poignant, disturbing or some combination thereof.
Nearly two years later, we dropped by the site and found lots more Colorado-centric oddities, involving f-bombs, toilet paper rolls and future hip-hop star Rap Killa Vanilla. Count down our ten weirdest finds below.
