  1. Of the supposed Yeti scalp: “It had tufts of reddish-black fur coming out of it and was mounted on a pole and seen as a holy relic.”

    Dammit, they’ve killed Alf’s great grandfather and are using his head as an ornament for their hovels. Damn them to Los Angeles.

  2. “Nigerian Tribune learnt that three cats were crossing the busy road when the okada ran over one of them which immediately turned into a woman. This strange occurrence quickly attracted people around who descended on the animals. One of them, it was learnt, was able to escape while the third one was beaten to death, still as a cat though.”

    Credulous much?

  3. Not overly surprising though- the Nigerians also have warlocks running around stealing penises (penii?) and that vaccines are an evil plot to sterilize people. So shape shifting witches would be old hat.

    Then again, their entire economy seems to run on 915 scams, so skepticism probably wouldnt hold much stock.

  4. remember when I said Africa: it’s where teh crazy is, and people pointed out that there’s woo everywhere? Yes, we might have people who believe that a sugar pill will cure a headache, but cats turning into women? Thanks, Africa!

  5. re: Nigerian cat-woman.

    She has been taken to Teme Clinic. Police will still be guarding her so that she will not disappear

    Come on, people! If she could disappear, she would have no need to transform herself into a cat! An invisible woman could sneak around killing people much more efficiently than a cat could. Plus, if she disappears, how will the guards find her?

    Let’s use some frickin’ logic, folks! (wink)

  6. Nigerian Tribune learnt that three cats were crossing the busy road when the okada ran over one of them which immediately turned into a woman…

    And after that, she turned the motorcyclist into a newt! But he got better…. :-)
