Sorry about Nessie

Loch Ness Let Down

Researchers from Pictland College, Scotland discovered that Nessie is NOT a prehistoric dinosaur. This will destroy the Scottish tourism industry. Nessie is a garden-variety of English dragon, not at all unusual. (St. George did not slay all the dragons)

Science is Amazing

Real Shocker!

Shocking Discovery!

An alert Census Taker discovered a family of Bigfoot living in suburban Louisville, Saltlick Road area. Census administrators will determine if the Bigfoot family can be counted. Local officials are discussing the feasibility of serving the family with an eviction notice—the property belongs to the government because of back taxes. Police recommend that sightseers stay away for safety reasons.

Spine tingling!

The Other Roswell!

Home with who?

Hangin’ With the Homefolks

Charles Suddeth


We don’t allow no strangers and stragglers,

Neighbors best keep your six feet or more,

I haven’t seen a fresh face in many weeks,

I don’t care to get close to any old soul.


I’ve got my roommate to keep me company,

We gab and laugh at moldy, old jokes,

We take turns cooking and cleaning and all,

It helps pass the time, don’t you know?


I live alone, you say, but who’s here?

Has cabin fever mucked with my mind?

Not only do I see things that don’t exist,

But I chat and they answer right away.


Now I am too frightened to speak,

Madness has struck this lonely boy,

Or is it something else? Dare I say it?

Ghosts have cast their spells on me.



Pok-ta-pok AKA Pitz (modern version is ulama) is a 4,000-year-old Mayan ballgame played with a hard rubber ball on a stone court (signifying Xibalba, Mayan underworld) that was larger than a football field. No hands were allowed. This is a game for real men.
