Gotta Watch: Mythical creatures

Is that really Bigfoot? Has someone finally tracked down the elusive chupacabra? Can you ever really, truly know if these creatures really exist? It’s the subject of our blog today. You’ve gotta watch these encounters with mysterious creatures.

Legend of the chupacabra – A Texas man spots what looks like a chupacabra. But is it? He doesn’t think so, but now it’s your turn to be the judge.

Bigfoot – What would you do if you saw Bigfoot on your lawn? One North Carolina man chased him away with a large stick and called 911.

Unidentifiable object – It looks like an alien, but no one was quite sure what it was. Maybe you can figure it out.

    I'm tired of seeing all these BS chupacabra headlines anytime anyone sees a canine with the mange. This is a COMMON sight in 3rd world countries. I've seen dogs that look way uglier and more monstrous than that thing in southeast Asia. I thought CNN was in the NEWS business... guess I didn't realize it was the Weekly World News business.

    The "chupacabra" looks like an awful lot like a Xolo or "Mexican hairless dog."

    Ok, please tell me I'm not the only one who saw that mythical-creature's picture and immediately thought "huh, they're drawing Jesus".

    The chupacabra pics are just an emaciated dog. Animal control needs to go find the dog and feed it, or put it down if necessary.

    Bigfoot is a myth. Someone's crappy drawing of that they claim they saw in their backyard doesn't change that. In fact, it looks like he saw a really tall and hairy homeless guy. Go give the man a sammich and offer to drive him to a shelter.

    The unidentified animal was interesting. I'll be keeping an eye on that story.

    Seriously CNN? Chupacabra? It's sooooo obviously a coyote with mange. How did this make the front page of CNN.com! This is ridiculous.

    The last video was on the history channel a couple of weeks ago. It turned out to be a sloth with no hair. It is an old video.

    I don't know why, but I find that first photo (the drawing) and its caption to be hilarious.

    OK now for the truth. I am a big foot. The real thing. Here is how I changed so people will not notice. I jumped off school buses and landed on my feet. This compressed my vertabrae so I shrunk from nine feet tall to five foot six. Using electrolisis, I had most of the hair removed from my body. Left a little on my head and chin.
    I learned to speak english, but can still speak Bigfootish when I meet another big foot. I secretely meet them from time to time. They are annoyed that people are trying to harm them. So be carefull you could get hurt.
