"In Search Of" was THE most awesome show. As a kid it got me interested in these kinds of things, because it showed me that there was all kinds of weird shiat going on in the world that I knew nothing about.

The internet has made this kind of curiosity even easier to address, with websites like and

Spork Bunny: /seriously though have you seen the size of mosquitoes out there in Manitoba and Sexscatchewan?

You wouldn't believe what's crawling around in Regina.

Amateurs. El Chupacabra eats goats, not dogs. (And fat trivia geeks from Georgia.)

We're looking for El Chupapero.

Isn't this exactly how Agent Scully lost poor Queequeg?
2006-08-11 03:56:57 PM  
Come on now, we all know what it is...

A gigantic mutant Manitoban mosquito.

Yarr, tis on the loose from Komarno...
2006-08-11 03:57:01 PM  
I heard it kinda wild there in Manitoba.

Road trip anyone? I got some guns, access to liquid explosives, and time on my hands.

/liquid explosvies may come in form of mexican burrito.

I'd like to know how many dozen people live in northern Manitoba.

Adman12: BTW, if you're over 30, this YouTube link (pops) will give you the chills as only a shared Gen-X pop culture flashback can.

I'm 27.

I used to watch "In Search Of..." religiously on A&E when I was younger.

Damn, pendy575 got it before me. I'm still gonna say it's some local resident known as "Old Man something" in a mask. And he'll get away with it unless some kids start meddling around. It even works with fatal_exception's grow-op hypothesis.

2006-08-11 04:03:29 PM  
I suppose not letting dogs run loose is beyond the Canucks comprehension?

It's probably some old hermit tired of having the mutts traipsing around his territory.
2006-08-11 04:04:04 PM  
"Dantouze said the band has advised people to stay away from the lake for the time being."

What band??
2006-08-11 04:06:18 PM  
I briefly caught the creature on video.
2006-08-11 04:07:48 PM  
I can't imagine a childhood without those creepy "mysteries" to keep me up at night.

(I also saw "Mysterious Monsters" in the theatre in '76, at age six. Couldn't look out a window at night for months for fear of seeing bigfoot looking in.)

Yeah, I think I saw that one too at the theater.

Kids today are jaded and wouldn't find that movie or "In Search Of..." the least bit spooky. But they have to remember back in the 70's we had no VHS, DVD, internet downloads or cable TV. We didn't have much access to spooky stuff. It was basically "In Search Of...", "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and the Saturday night local station "Creature Features" hosted by somebody dressed up as Dracula. Good times, good times.

If you live in Northen Manitoba, being gutted and killed is a better fate than living out one's full life.

/lives in Southern Manitoba and wishes we had some compassionate "mysterious creatures"

My friend, that is the funniest thing I could never of thought of. I live in southern Manitoba and couldnt agree more.

Guess Who?

Or maybe it was a Burton Cummings solo effort?

\Gotta get that Can Con in!
2006-08-11 04:16:48 PM  
and by "mysterious" we mean "an ex-cop that doesn't like noisy pets attracted to the smell of fish"

They're going to have to wait until the ice break up next spring. So they can lure the wendigo across a river and have it killed under the ice flows.
2006-08-11 04:39:13 PM  
In Search Of was shown all the time on A&E in the 90's.
2006-08-11 04:45:05 PM  

I didn't know Drew Carrey was into tattoos...

But seriously, my theory...

I always thought there was something strange about Drew Carey

2006-08-11 05:06:06 PM  
No, no, no.

Leonard Nimoy is not who we need (though In Search Of was cool).

This is clearly the work of Big Blue. We need Mulder and Scully on the case, pronto.

/And Queequeg as an appetizer.

What's the Canadian name for a Chupacabra?

Steven Harper.

I believe you're looking for chupaperro.

Kids today are jaded and wouldn't find that movie or "In Search Of..." the least bit spooky.

The ones that gave me nightmares were "Threads," "The Day After" and "V", but I suppose those were all in the 80's. The creature double-features on UHF were pretty cool in the 7os, but they didn't show much George Romero, it was more like bad japanese and american monster movies from the '50s.

/Just a ramblin down memory lane.
//Does it seem unusual to anyone else that authorities are "recommending people stay away from the lake" without more backup evidence?
///Wolf pack would be my guess.
2006-08-11 06:08:35 PM  
Probably some gas-huffer got hungry. I love it so much when the chiefs have them kicked off the res, and shipped to Thompson, rather than actually dealing with the problem:

Whats wrong with Manitoba? It beats Saskatchewan, what more could you expect?

If this were cats instead of dogs, I would blame most of the male members of this site.

leave Mr Moustache out of it!

But I was guessing that without RTFA that it was Cummings' moustache, that thing can kill a cow

It's a dinosaur that has been hibernating for many hundreds of years, suddenly brought back to life by...gamma rays, yeah that's it. It's hungry!

Oh ok, it's EL CHUPACABRA!

That Elmendorf Creature looks exactly like a Peruvian Inca Orchid who had some sort of chromosomal defect or inbreeding; would also explain the live one reported nearby. PIOs are known for having terrible teeth, so a messed-up overbite like in the picture isn't too much of a stretch.

Too bad this didn't take place in Nunavut...

"I want Nunavut!"
