Monkey x human offspring do not exist from Homo sapiens females. What you are about to read may make you upset, and if you view the video referenced, you may become sick. What are humans thinking to make such things into news? Not surprisingly, as shown above, people have made babies with defects into “monsters” for hundreds of years. The only difference now, it’s on YouTube. Some things being uploaded onto the internet – technically being reposted because they are on the broadcast news – are so unfortunate that I wish I could expunge them from my memory. I hope [...]
Fox and Friends had Loch Ness researcher on their show this week. Here’s the YouTube video:

Over at “Forces of Good,” Stefan Blitz has posted his ten most favorite video clips of “Bigfoot Appearances.” I note that only two appearances of the gathering, #1 and #10, can be said to be nonfiction. Most are popular culture icons, snippets from movies, ads, and reality programs that are entirely fictional. Nevertheless, it is a good little collection, and Blitz is to be congratulated for posting these YouTube-like clips all in one place. Here is his list: TOP TEN BIGFOOT APPEARANCES Ah, the famed Sasquatch. Of all of my favorite crypto-creatures, you are by far my favorite. Luckily, the [...]
Double-entendre: A word or phrase having a double meaning; the use of such a word or phrase. Here’s my double-entendre for the month: trailers. Below is the video trailer to the forthcoming documentary by writer/director Sean Whitley, Southern Fried Bigfoot. As a trailer, you will note it does not have CG identifications of the people being interviewed. But I have a feeling many of you will know who all of these guys being interviewed are. Trailers are teasers to encourage people to come watch the whole film. I think you will be intrigued by what you see. Within this trailer, [...]
Is it MEG? The above Japanese video is vaguely labeled as if this might be a recording of Carcharodon megalodon. Of course, it could be any number of large sharks, including a whale shark. With the reports from Australia of “monster” sharks, no matter what size they are, it is clear that the curious interest in cryptid Megalodons is easily ignited. Carcharodon megalodon, the 70 foot, 40 ton prehistoric cousin of the great white shark, rises from the abyss in the forthcoming movie Meg, and people can hardly wait. “Meg Madness,” if I may, will continue to mount, as the [...]
Here is the Norwegian so-called “Sea Serpent” (apparently a Lake Monster?) video footage. Please see the previous post here for the background details. What do you think?
Remember the “Snow Walker” footage of a “Yeti in a snowfield.” It turned out to be a fake that the producers of Paranormal Borderland, an old UPN program that lasted about two episodes, created to boost the ratings of their first show. Now the obnoxious Penn & Teller and their BS Showtime Network program are claiming to have done something similar. Do they want news outlets such as Cryptomundo to talk about them because we have ignored them so well? Of course they do. A teaser digital preview for their forthcoming “cryptozoology” episode on Showtime is broadcasting that they faked [...]
