    In fact, there is only one picture, but they invert it and crop it to make it seem like there are multiple ones. :crazyeye:

    This is the same news source that reported that 'gnome' in Argentina. Considering that, and the fact that they declare Panama to be in South America, leads me to believe that they are not exactly a credible source. Especially since the story is virtually identical to the 'gnome' story. 4 teenage boys attacked by a bizarre creature from a Tolkien novel? Likely.

    This looks more like a deformed human, or rather, pigmentless E.T. doll, than anything else. Where's Bigfoot when you need him? He loves this crap.

    EDIT: Yep, this is looking like a quality journalistic source alright. From the same site:

    I don't think Panama counts as South America.

    It doesn't. It's North American.

    I don't think The Sun counts as a source.

    Yes, Central America. But that's not a continent. North and South are. Panama would be in North.

    People think that the US uses alot of oil, but they forget - we don't get any geography. You guys get all the geography. So greedy.

    I'm glad to see the UK is cutting back on their geography, maybe there will be enough for the US someday.
