Come On, China, That Is Sooooo Not A Yeti

April 7, 2010


I don't know if China has even seen a drawing of a Yeti before but they never look like this. And they're also never in pink cages popping an angry squat while their picture's being taken. Glaring inaccuracies aside, this is the "oriental yeti".

The creature was snared in Sichuan province "after locals reported spotting what they thought was a bear". Hunter Lu Chin said: "It looks a bit like a bear but it doesn't have any fur and it has a tail like a kangaroo. It also does not sound like a bear - it has a voice more like a cat and it is calling all the time - perhaps it is looking for the rest of its kind or maybe it's the last one?

He concluded: "There are local legends of a bear that used to be a man and some people think that's what we caught."

Well hate to rain on the yeti Parade, but you remember Delores, the hairless bear at that German zoo? Well I think this is something similar. Except not a bear -- yo momma. Plus she wears combat boots and dresses you funny! Did I really just....? Yes, and I'm not taking it back either unless you tell her and she calls my parents and they make me.

Thanks to John, Juan, Pat and Uncle_FUJ, who are all surprised it hasn't ended up on a menu yet.
