Buck Wolf has blazed a strange-but-true path through professional journalism. He's had breakfast with the world's tallest man, held the world's shortest woman in his arms, and has hammered a four-inch nail up his nose while demonstrating the time-honored sideshow practice of "Human Blockhead." Buck has licked the world's largest hairball, and he's served as a talent judge for Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Buck is a graduate of Columbia University's famed journalism school. He was part of the Peabody winning ABC News team that covered the Sept. 11 attack. But he's best known as the guy who runs HuffPost Weird News, one of the Internet's top go-to news sites for unbelievably strange but unquestionably true news. As the lead weirdo at HuffPost, I lead a deranged and talented bunch of overgrown kindergarteners who produce HuffPost Weird News.
