Yeti nest found? Abominable snowman's adorable digs

The Sun, that venerable publication of high journalistic standards, published a story last week claiming a scientist found the twisted trees that signals a Yeti nest.

Biologist John Bindernagel was part of an expedition in Siberia, Russia, where he found trees twisted by force into arch shapes (in the same way gorillas and orangutans do) that might accompany the nesting grounds for the Bigfoot creature.

Bindernagel told the tabloid, "We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal ... Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests."

This news comes on the heels of Life's Little Mysteries story about Bindernagel's October expedition also turning up a "some tracks in the snow" and "gray hairs in a clump moss in a Russian cave in the Kemerovo region in western Siberia." The website also points out the "discovery" could also easily be a publicity stunt to increase tourism to the area: "The event seemed more of a media circus than a scientific expedition when former Russian heavyweight boxer Nikolai Valuyev recently toured the cave 'searching' for the yeti, to great media attention."

On a related note of Bigfoot evidence, this news gives us a chance to post this wildly inappropriate, very NSFW Harry and the Hendersons clip from Robot Chicken. Enjoy.
