Most bizarre were the many reports from residents all over the state [of Connecticut] of horrific screams coming from nowhere.

The horrific screams were from residents that suddenly realized they lived in Connecticut, which is basically nowhere to begin with. Mystery solved for this one.

The North Carolina poop monster?? Really? It was a fungus! So many other cooler choices in this state. Like the Devil's Tramping Ground, or the road where you can roll up hill.

atomic-age: MBooda: Mississippi -- The Carrot-Top Aliens

gawd. We'll never be able to live it down. Other states get the Greys with their anal probes. We get Carrot Top.

What a hideous monster! It's like a nuclear goat-bunny-troll-wolfman.


I see it also has no legs. How does it move? Does it sort of wriggle across the ground on sucker or possibly hook-like growths?

C18H27NO3: Colorado seems to have it all what with UFOs, ghosts, strange weather, bigfoot, prarie dragons that invade your home, and dracula/mothman hybrid flying people types.

/And by "all" I mean a higher concentration of delusional people, apparently.


They also seem to have a higher percentage of the electorate willing to vote to legalize mind altering substances, I wonder if this is related,

namatad: 45cal: Was thinking they would do the strange lights from the Upper Peninsula whose name escapes me right now. There is even a sign at the park that tells about them but they still don't know how they are formed.

YAWN
they were able to recreate the lights. inversion layer.
YAWN

It should be legal to kill people who believe ghosts are real. Just to help clean the gene pool.


To desensitize is stupid

RexTalionis: For a state with stuff like the Jersey Devil and all sorts of bizarre phenomenon, the best this slideshow could do is that someone hung some shirts in trees?


CSB
The really sad part is that I'm pretty sure I know the guy who did this shirt thing; in the 90's around Princeton and Lawrence my art teacher in HS was making collages out of clothes nailed to plywood and numbering them before nailing them up high on utility poles or trees, even got a quick blurb in Weird NJ. This sounds just like his MO of doing confusing things with clothing and just leaving it out in strange places

We Dutch have a saying: "You never know how a cow catches a hare." It was in the newspapers and everything. At least that is somewhat believable.

/The most credible explanation entails a cow standing behind a tree and mimicking the sound of a carrot
//Well, it was in the newspapers in ages past and it didn't require a lot to be newsworthy back then

Unexplained phenomena of the internet: Not only are articles like this deemed worth the bandwidth to write and publish, but websites all over the globe expend further bandwidth in order to disseminate them as far and wide as possible...even to the extent that the bandwidth they use to do so is more than they can afford to pay for, prompting them to plaster their site with advertisements or to charge users $5 per month.
