That's just uncle Earl, takin' his "experiment" fer a swim!

So, we have the town of residence and street name of a paranoid old man who's pointing a video camera out of his window 24/7 looking for monsters.

I expect a follow-up thread, Farkers.

Wasn't this an episode on X-FIles?

I'm certainly convinced by those pics. I'm off to look for Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster...catch y'all later!

Could they shrink the pics a little more? They arent blurry enough for me to get excited over.

Yarrrr it be brown trout!
 
2009-11-17 01:57:24 PM  
I'm not going to click. I've seen plenty of pictures of 74 year old men.

Nice to see him displaying his own "sea monster" for the general public...


Came here to say this.
 
2009-11-17 02:02:26 PM  
Saw this on a different local news station last night. Even the anchors were having a hard time not snickering at his ravings.
/looked like a manatee rolling around to me.

When I'm that old, I'm going to be so bored and starved for excitement that I'll make up things, too.

"There's a monster in the woods!"
"settle down, grandpa, it's just a tree."
"But..it moved!"
"that's the wind, grandpa."
"oh...you don't love me."

/silent sobbing
 
2009-11-17 02:06:50 PM  
shiattloh....that explains it....
 
2009-11-17 02:08:10 PM  
So this guy is apparently unaware of the ZOOM function that most camera's possess these days. Just like all the rest of these "monster" photos.

/Looks like trash to me.
//Not that the story is trash, or the guy is trash. The monster.
///It's trash.

It's a coyote with mange.
 
2009-11-17 02:11:23 PM  
it's never busy people that find these things. It's never employed people that get abducted by aliens, or find crop circles, or see ghost sightings, it's always the bored/boring, unemployed losers...

...except for those idiots from roto-rooter on t.v., but they're just snake oil salesmen. ...and the one guy is totally a grown up bobby hill!
 
2009-11-17 02:12:14 PM  
Came for the huge manatee

/made a huge mess
//leaving satified
///need a nap now
 
2009-11-17 02:12:33 PM  
Sittloh adds he's seen at least two of the sea creatures and he's concerned they could be dangerous.

Why can't somebody just take this attention fool out back and clip his forehead with a ball peen hammer?

Could be a crackhead that got ahold to the wrong stuff, and it told him to get in the canal and play a sea creature.
 
2009-11-17 02:14:45 PM  
My grandpa had a monster in his backyard canal... it was called Colon Cancer. Now how do you feel you wisecracking snarkmeisters?

2009-11-17 02:16:31 PM  
Swamp gas.

A clever grandpa would sob loudly and shriekingly. Freaks the kiddies out better.

We could use one of those monsters in Rotonda.
