What was the weirdest housemate you've ever had?

The following are tied for weirdest:

1.) The woman who shaved the back of her head and left a pile of black hair on the floor. This was a roommate at a volunteer yoga retreat, so I guess I was just supposed to learn acceptance.

2.) The woman who was a stripper at a club, and kept chickens in the back yard of the house.

3.) That same woman didn't "trust plumbing", or thought it wasn't "green" enough, so she used a bucket in her room as a toilet. I moved out quickly so I have no idea if the health department was called.

4.) The landlord captured local squirrels and kept them in a cage in the basement because they were endangered. According to another tenant, she was a certified "squirrel restorer", or whatever is the official name for that.
