From fried chicken in a dead bush to moist hair clippings found on the sidewalk, gag-worthy grossness finds a home at Gross Stuff in LA. Want to see a picture of a gray-haired Barbie trapped in a gutter? How about an apple so badly decomposed that it looks like a toad? Those with a sensitive hurl reflex should take appropriate measures before clicking; chicken soup in a glass jar may not sound gross, but somehow, it's yak-inducing.

Started as a way to cope with the "all the repulsive crap" found in a neighbor's East Hollywood apartment, Natalie Winslow began photographing the vileness for public discussion on a blog. Currently residing in Denver, Winslow still has operatives in Los Angeles but also accepts 'Gross' submissions from around the world. Newly revived, the blog's first post in six months went live today. Welcome back to the disgusting.
