Cryptozoology’s Greatest Undiscoveries

I made up fake animals, and then I drew them. The only other thing I can say about this cartoon was that it was partly inspired by this hopefully facetious post on Boing Boing.

Of course there are animals that haven’t been discovered yet. But all the big names, Bigfoot, Nessie, la Chupacabra, and the Moderate Republican, are just the wild fantasies of people who like to pretend they’re scientists. I could poo in a shoe and mix some blueberries in it, and half of the cryptozoology community would take it as proof of something.

If you live in the Boston area, I have a full page comic in this week’s Back to School Supplement of the Phoenix. I’ll post a link for the rest of you as soon as it becomes available.

  1. I recently watched the first ten minutes of a Bigfoot show before becoming enraged and turning it off. They claimed that bigfoot has been sited in all fifty states. Where exactly would bigfoot hide in Nebraska?

  2. Matt, Even though he doesn’t exist, I would never wish a life in Nebraska on any creature.

    Eric, I originally wanted to draw him on top of that pile of rubble that crushed that woman, but didn’t want to get any letters.

  3. I’ve never really been scared of bears or clowns, but I think the “wild dancing bear-clown” would freak the hell out of me if I ever ran into one…

  4. Brain I’m disappointed in you! You should have drawn that little bastard on top of the rubble hoarding bolts or whatever the fuck he likes to do. I’ve asseembled a crack team to investigate just WHAT it is he likes to do.

  5. I think I saw the Tunnel Beast this weekend when I was riding the T back to my hotel after dropping my brother off at BU.

    ….He almost ATE MY MOTHER.

  6. Hogarth – ew. But at least you’re not advocating sex with land dolphins.

    Ben – Wild Dancing Bear Clown is more afraid of you that you are of it.

    Blkae[sic] – My research in the Tip O’Neil Tunnel has indicated that he likes to shove assholes into your lane for no apparent reason.

    Steve- You’re safe on the T. Those tunnels were built way before Bechtel was around to fuck things up and summon the Tunnel Beast from the great unknown.
