Mystery solved. Again.
Experts say that "the" Loch Ness Monster....is a catfish.
Yeah, I can see the resemblance here.
Granted, I've been hearing about the Loch Ness Monster -- aka, Nessie -- for years.
I've seen the alleged photo evidence. And I've heard all the naysayer explanations debunking it.
Like the rumors of Big Foot and intelligence in the Democrap National Committee -- proof of which from the latter is devastatingly lacking -- the Loch Ness Monster remains a myth that is short of real proof, and short of absolute disallowance.
Nonetheless, here's a short story I picked up on Faceplant that claims to lay the myth to final rest:
Loch Ness Monster: Mythical Creature in Scottish Lake Is Likely Large Catfish, Expert Says
"Looking at all the evidence, speaking to eyewitnesses, the most likely solution is a Wels catfish," Steve Feltham told Sky News. Feltham said he has spent 24 years searching for the creature.
So finally, we now *know* that the mythical "Bessie"....is a catfish.
Of course, the USAF continues to claim that, like anything else unusual and reported by the public, it's nothing more than a weather balloon:
I'm sure they will get around to adding Nessie's silhouette to this chart soon.
Meantime, Yahoo Gnus has assigned perky Katie Couric to interview the Loch Ness catfish:
Aw c'mon, Katie: they only want you to actually do it before Brian Williams claims he did some years back when he resurfaces on msnbc...
