Where Is Nessie?

Seems that in Scotland, sightings of the Loch Ness monster are down, way down! This is causing a bit of concern amongst the locals that a shy Nessie will result in fewer tourists coming to the Loch to try and catch a glimpse of the world’s most famous mythological beastie.

From MSNBC: Loch Ness monster sightings down

“It’s becoming a potential crisis,” said Mikko Takala, 39, a founding member of the Loch Ness Monster Fan Club who runs four webcams on the lake’s north shore.

There have only been two reports of sightings this year, compared to three in 2006 and much lower than a decade ago, when the annual number sightings was consistently in the double digits, The Times newspaper said Saturday.

One has to wonder how long it will be before the global warming crowd somehow link the lack of Nessie sightings to their perception that man is turning Planet Earth into one giant cesspool.

More likely is that Nessie is on holiday in Spain or Italy, as it seems most Scots are from time to time.

** BONUS UPDATE **

Here is video from back in May 2007 of some fellow’s video of what he thinks is Nessie. I suspect it might be some secret Haliburton / Blackwater project instead.
