Tell Sweden About Your Odd Balls, er, Oddballs

Posted By on Sun, Nov 18, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Winters in Stockholm must be long and cold and boring, because the producers of a Swedish TV program called The Most Extraordinary Person Show have now turned to America to find the most offbeat person in our country.

Who is the most likeable, extraodinary, and offbeat person in your part of America?" they ask. "Your local odd character? There is probably one in every town."

Just ONE? Hey, this is Memphis, remember.

According to a press release, "Filip Hamar and Fredrick Wikingsson are two of Sweden's most beloved TV hosts. They will be in America from December 2007 to February 2008. Their assignment: Find America's most extraordinary, likeable, and offbeat person (and 99 others who are pretty darn close).

Know anybody? Remember: They have to be "likeable." Go to the show's website to learn more. Watch the promo video to get an idea of what they're after.

All we can say is, "oh geez, you betcha."
