Mystery Creature Washes Up On Long Island

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.

Bigfoot Body Found In Georgia?

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?

Getting a big kick out of this post:

American Psycho Movie Quotes

“Not quite blonde, are we? More of a dirty blonde.”

“I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don’t know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.”

“Hey, I’m a child of divorce, gimme a break!”

“There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.”

“I don’t want to get you drunk, but, ah, that’s a very fine Chardonnay you’re not drinking.”

“I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I’m 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”

“Pumpkin, you’re dating an asshole.”

“I know that your friends are my friends and, uh… I thought about that. You can have ’em.”

“In ’87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Hip to be Square”, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.”

“TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, FUCKING BASTARD!”

“Do you like Phil Collins? I’ve been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn’t understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins’ presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe.”

“I guess you could say I just want to have a meaningful relationship with someone special.”

“So, if you get back tomorrow, I may show up at Harry’s Bar, so you know — keep your eyes open.”

Cool T-Shirt: “Bad Moon” by the Ames Bros.

Frank Kozik called the Ames Brothers “the best poster artists in the business.” Designers of scores of rock posters and CD art, they’ve turned their hands to T-shirts. This comic-booky, retro-inspired werewolf shirt will look great with a leather jacket, Converse sneaks, and a punch to the face.
