News, but not the serious kind
Trekking for beasts – are we there Yeti?
Welcome to another installment of Haven’t These Guys Ever Seen a Movie Before?
From Nepal comes a Reuters story about a bunch of mountain climbers heading off on a trek to find the Abominable Snowman, or Yeti. Pathetically, they’re equipped with cameras and telescopes, instead of, you know, flame-throwers and hand grenades.
One of the climbers says – and I’m not making this up – “I want to shake hands if I meet him.”
Yeah. Right. I’m afraid I know where his telescope is going to end up, and it’s way too dark to see anything in there.
