Log Ness

A decade or so ago I had the good fortune (or the misfortune, depending on your perspective) to meet a distinctly odd chap named Colin Perks - an OCD-blighted, paranoid-but-brilliant individual - who told a highly strange story about being persecuted (by both the British Government and a glowing-eyed gargoyle, no less...) for seeking out the final resting place of the legendary King Arthur.

Perks, who shuffled off this mortal-coil in 2009, popped up again in 2002, claiming yet another monster-governmental connection. In this case, he asserted he had photographed nothing less than a sea-serpent swimming along London's River Thames, adjacent to none other than the ultra-secret headquarters of Britain's overseas-intelligence-gathering agency, MI6!

To his dying day, Perks believed it to be a monster of the deep. Me? I think it's a log. But, for what it's worth (or not), that's it above. And, like all lake-monsters and sea-serpents (whether Nessie, Ogopogo, Morgawr, or Champ) this one should have a name.

Let's call it Loggy.

  1. Mmmm..."Soggy the Loggy, Terror of the Thames?"

    You and Jon should do a song about it.
