Nessie Revealed
News agencies are reporting that sightseers at Loch Ness were fooled into thinking they saw Nessie:

Around 600 people desperate to catch a glimpse of Nessie were stunned when they came face to face with a 16ft creature emerging from the Highland waters. But channel Five television revealed that the mythical beast was actually a 440lb animatronic model called "Lucy" who baffled tourists when she roamed the murky depths of Loch Ness for two weeks. The results have been filmed by Five for their television programme: Loch Ness Monster: The Ultimate Experiment, which will be shown at the end of the month.

But, of course, we all know the real story. Government agencies, in collusion with the extraterrestrials, created a story about a 440lb animatronic model as a cover to hide the fact that Nessie (who is controlled by the aliens) accidentally revealed herself.

But what about the part where the Japanese scientists place explosive devices under the water of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water, and Sir Curt Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summons the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and it's local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally?

Och, Nessie, we hardly knew ye! But really, it was just swamp gas reflecting off the planet Venus at sunset. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

I saw a show about this on cable TV a few months back. I can't figure out why it's suddenly getting press when it was obviously perpetrated no later than last year.

I dunno about Nessie, but I saw Nettie the other day.

It reminds me of an episode of mystery hunters (odd YTV kids show) where the girl goes diving in some lake to find this legendary monster, and sees this crazy underwater statue.
