Zombie cover up

A recent Austin, Texas invasion by zombies has been covered up as a hacker’s hoax. I don't know what they did with all the zombies, but I bet they ate the brains of some locals.

Humorous article and video here.

Getting along swimmingly with Juan Cabana

Her name is Ariel.

I’ll say it right away. This is not a hoax. It’s art. I found another “exhibit” by Artist, Juan Cabana. A mermaid corpse found in Malaysia.

Here’s the link I found at Hoax Slayer.

Here’s the art of Juan Cabana.

Brown Button your fly

I like DO spiders and snakes, and that IS what it takes.

Call me late to the internet, but I’ll bite your head off if you say it out loud. I was recently alerted to this story of an African Brown Button Spider (a well-dressed lady). She ate a snake back in 2004.
I did some investigating, and what many people don’t realize about this particular spider is that she had been on a crash diet because it was prom season. No male Brown Button Spider asked her to the prom, so she binged on this snake who was making fun of her. That’s just the way it goes.
I personally won’t eat snake without a little hot sauce.

Chickcharnie con carne

A good, old friend, Arnie Chickcharnie has allowed his legend to reach the mainland. He’s a very quiet creature who retired to the Bahamas centuries ago. He wanted to remain anonymous, but he was occasionally spied by humans who built a Bahamian legend around him. His handsome red eyes must have given him away.
If you get down to the Bahamas on vacation, be sure to keep your eyes out for him. Though he’s shy he does appreciate a Bahama Mamma once in a while. So buy him one. Maybe he’ll spare your delicate hide.
For more about Chickcharnie according the the Miami Herald, click here.

We’ve come a long way, baby

This Vampire Hunter’s Kit is evil in a box.

Back in the day it was fashionable to hunt and kill the undead. How horrific is that? I’m glad humans are more tolerable these days… and more tasty.

I found this link on another blog, but I’m linking directly to the scientific oddities page containing this vampire hunter’s kit. How droll.

To give credit where credit is due, Scribal Terror is where I originally found it.

Cracked is whack with their lists

I was alerted to this list on earlier today. It lists “6 Bizarre Real World Versions of Fictional Monsters.” Little do they know (obviously) that there are players and poseurs , and there are fictional characters, but then there are the real things.
The list is amusing nonetheless. Worth a look see. First on the list is vampires, so I'm not sure if that should be an insult or compliment. Maybe Ian Fortey needs a nibble.

He also lists zombies. I wonder what Betty Bones would think. And Frankenstein. Abby Cadaver probably wouldn't care either way. And last on the list is demons. My own little sister, DeMonica is a demon. She seems to think that since she’s last on the list it means she’s considered to be the least pretentious. Let her go on thinking that.
