Welcome to
Weird pictures of clothing found by the road.

We've all seen it.We spend countless hours in our automobiles and in most cases, stuck in traffic. With nothing left to do, your eyes wander around the roadsides in search of something to look at.

That's when you see it. It may be a pair of Nike Shoes or perhaps a T-shirt..but it's there and there is no reasonable explanation for why it's there.

We've seen it all...including funky T-shirts, designer pants, winter gloves (Isotoners!), baseball caps and even underwear.

We've also found some pretty strange stuff on streets throughout our community. We thought it may be interesting to stop and take some digital pictures, to see just how much clothing could be found on the side of our roadways and highways.

The result? Pavement Gear. A image collection of authentic roadside attire (and other strange items that we have stumbled upon). For awhile, we even picked the discarded clothing up, washed it, modeled it and donated the clothing to homeless shelters. We don't expect you to do that, but..

We invite you to submit your digital pictures.

With the increasing popularity of digital camera phones and compact cameras, we at Pavement Gear welcome your roadside apparel submissions. It's easy to do and you'll be proud of contributing to the Internet's largest database of clothing and other strange stuff found on the side of the road.

I can't figure out if this person actually collected a lot of real personal ads that were weird or they just created a whole bunch of their own just for this webpage.

Be careful meeting your personal ad person. They could turn out like this...

LOL! Pinocchio Converts to Islam!

Pinocchio, Tom Sawyer and other characters have been converted to Islam in new versions of 100 classic stories on the Turkish school curriculum.

“Give me some bread, for Allah’s sake,” Pinocchio says to Geppetto, his maker, in a book stamped with the crest of the ministry of education. “Thanks be to Allah,” the puppet says later.

In The Three Musketeers, D’Artagnan is told that he cannot visit Aramis. The reason would surprise the author, Alexandre Dumas. An old woman explains: “He is surrounded by men of religion. He converted to Islam after his illness.”

Tom Sawyer may always have shirked his homework, but he is more conscientious in learning his Islamic prayers. He is given a “special treat” for learning the Arabic words.

Pollyanna, seen by some as the embodiment of Christian forgiveness, says that she believes in the end of the world as predicted in the Koran.

Heidi, the Swiss orphan girl in the tale by Johanna Spyri, is told that praying to Allah will help her to relax.

Several more books have been altered, including La Fontaine’s fables and Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.
