    Wink "Monster" washes up on our shore




    http://www.wnbc.com/news/17047883/de...ss=ny&psp=news

    NEW YORK -- Is it real or just a legend? That's what many are asking after the corpse of a bizarre-looking creature with a dinosaur beak washed up on a Long Island shore this week.

    A tipster told Gawker.com that there is "a government animal testing facility very close by" where the creature washed ashore, but government biologists contacted by Hamptons-based Web site Plum said after looking at the pictures that "no such creature exists," according to Gawker.

    The woman who took the photo of the creature's corpse on the shore along with two others who claim to have seen the "Montauk Monster" will appear on Plum's Web show to discuss the sighting.

    While neighboring towns are abuzz with talk of the creature -- is it a sea turtle? a rodent? a dog? -- no one knows for sure.

    Those who claim to have seen it told Newsday they were "shocked and amazed."

    And if it were a real animal, one county executive said, it could make some money as an attraction.

    'If this could be certified as the Suffolk version of the Loch Ness monster, we'd sell tickets and get a lot of revenue," County Executive Steve Levy told Newsday.
    What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about?

    Steve Corwin was on FOX yesterday saying that if he had some sense of scale,he'd be more sure.But he opined that it looked like a raccoon with its lower jaw torn off that had been decomposing for long enough for its hair to rot away.
    Turtles' backbones are part of the shell.Rip that away and you reveal the innards and not a back with skin on it.I know because I've cooked enough of them to know.
    When he mentioned that,it DID look more familiar to me.

    It is still the talk of the town. LOL...I thought some expert who knows bone structure could figure out that whole face thing he has going on.

    George, when I saw your name added to this I was 1/2 expecting that you would have had some irrefutable evidence that this was a hoax. The other 1/2 was that there'd be some goofyass response. This was NOT the goofyass response I had in mind.

    But one has to ask: Is she just sleeping or did she pass out????

    Now a rumor is going around that it is an experiment gone bad from the nearby Plum Island Lab.

    Nonsense. Do you think that this is a coincidence that there were Springsteen concerts in NJ at the time?

    Maybe the Boss gave the cops free tickets, thereby allowing someone to dump Ms. NJ into the drink undetected!
