Can’t get enough of that weird-ass griffin/turtle/dog/raccoon/Cloverfield monster that washed up on a Long Island beach recently?
You can now buy your own movie-quality replica of the poor creature on eBay.
From the auction listing:
“Finally own this piece of history, BMFX FX Studios is proud to present this custom made prop. Made from an original sculpt casted from latex this prop looks real.”
“Not to be confused with the cheap crap from the far east with toxic lead paint.”
It can be yours for only $20.00. Great for scaring grandma in the swimming pool.

Hot on the heels of the alleged Bigfoot corpse in the freezer is this picture of a mystery creature that supposedly washed up on a Long Island, NY beach. As you can see, it looks like a pig with a parrot’s face and is freakin’ nasty looking. And yet, I also feel pity for it. Not every one of God’s creatures can look like a koala bear.
What the hell is it? The result of some mysterious genetic experiment gone awry? A promo for some new Fox sci-fi series that will only last six months? You decide.

Also a sign of armageddon: child catches nasty-ass demonic fish.
I’m taking this news with a rather sizable grain of salt, but a Rick Dyer claims to have “accidentally” found the body of a dead Bigfoot deep in the Georgia woods. Now Dyer, from the website Bigfoottracker.com, has acquired legal counsel to copyright his photographs and plans to reveal his discovery to the world on September 1st.
Here are the Bigfoot corpse’s vital statistics: 8’8″ tall, 600 lbs, and gender undisclosed. It is currently residing in a rather large freezer. As for its looks, according to one person Dyer said in a radio interview that “if you shaved his face and put a hat on “him”…he would appear to be a very large human.”
This story has also brought to my attention the rather passionate rivalries and disagreements within the cryptozoologist community, with Dyer accusing some researchers of conducting a smear campaign against him and his find.
What if the hairy body in the icebox really is the legendary Bigfoot? Will the annals of science be rewritten? Will the FBI get involved? With Bigfoots being humanoid, did Dyer have a responsibility to notify the coroner first upon discovery of the body? And what if it’s really just a taller than normal human with a glandular condition?
