My dad sent me an interesting newspaper article.
About the Skunk Ape.
Yep, you heard me right. Apparently there is a legendary creature in the southern Florida swamps called the Skunk Ape which is a reddish yeti-like creature with a bit of an odor problem (this is what happens when you bed down in sulphur-rich alligator den...yep, I studied up. I'm nothing if not thorough).
And apparently there is even a Skunk Ape Research Headquarters (otherwise known as a Tourist Trap). Wow, right? And to think I lived there for years and never got the chance to catch a sighting of this fabulous animal. What a waste!
I'm sure you are now completely fascinated with this little known creature, as am I. And because I love my readers so very much, I would like to share with you this video I found of The Skunk Ape (a.k.a A Man in a Gorilla Costume)....
Please, excuse me. I will now be very busy. No, I'm not going on a Skunk Ape hunt.
I'll be giggling.
