Monster Washes Ashore
animal_ybnby_creature.jpg
This smells fake, but Gawker is reporting that a "monster" which has a rodent body and dinosaur-like beak washed ashore near Montauk, NY. Adding to the mystery, residents report that "there's a government animal testing facility very close by" which means what you think it does ... The Island of Dr. Moreau was non-fiction. We are a few years away from bird-human hybrids who can drop bombs from midair and also check for dandruff.

Man, a little more sophisticated than the classic Fiji Mermaid, I don't what that thing is.

If faked, the artist should be hired by Stan Winston's special effects house.

Not us humble Manhattanites, Shadow, it's the mad scientists outside the city that are creating monsters.

Those guys are nuts.

Did we NOT learn anything from Cloverfield? It's just a matter of time before something large gets unleashed on our fair city and does away with scores of Abercrombie & Fitch catalog wannabees.

My Aunt has a boat out in the Hamptons and she tells me the security around there is weird.
