A rainbow of kiwa hirsuta

Got this action from James Voges

Speaking of "monkey crabs"...

Shawn Cheng & Sara Edward-Corbett are super-people of my acquaintance. They have collaborated splendidly in the making of a comic entitled not inappropriately...

The Monkey & The Crab

...which you may read online at the link purveyed, or in the event of an inspiration to favor the artists with patronage, purchase a physical version here.

Yeti is One Man against a Thousand

This is Eddy the Yeti, a puppet performed by Canadian kindergarten teacher Kanja Chen.

Here are some other Eddy the Yeti:
Eddie the Mean Old Yeti
Eddy the Yeti of the ice cream novelties

Artist Mark Brown often depicts little yeti in his paintings.

This is by the guy who creates Head Injury Theater, and I refer you to his Halloween page where he did drawings based on photos of weird costumes.

The following three links are not related to the above photo.

Get Ready for Yeti
Ice Monster
Yikes, It's a Yeti!

Mr. David Alan Brooks writes many a limerick. Scroll to the bottom of this page and you may read not one but two excellent limericks about the Recurring Motif of This Page.

Snow and Ice: The Yeti in an Urban Context







A crab by any other name

Don't forget that when the new species was discovered, nicknames were discussed and I suggested "monkey crab" while others suggested "furry lobster". The winner, hands-down, as it turned out, was "yeti crab" - as that is what the scientists who found it dubbed it. Yeti is more powerful than a loco-motive! Neologistically, I mean.

I got a yeti from the government the other day

Fort Franklin are creative folks that make things for businesses.

They made this pretty stellar Yeti Interaction, which, as near as I can tell, is not accessible from their main site. It is a secret for the Himalayan Initiate, just like yeti. What more can I do but commend them?

Hmm, what else?

  • Well, there's a band called Idle Yeti.

  • And here's a comic strip, and if you keep hitting the right arrow, the yeti comics never stop!

  • And a comic where one learns what happens when one summons a certain Beast of the Frosted Tundra

  • And why not? A little bit of Yeti Love on youtube

    hats and a thing

    As reader Shannon points out, you can get a hat that looks remarkably similar to the upper extremities of a certain Cold-Climate Ape of Famed Renown I could name but won't (third one down).

    I will say, however, that yeti is available as a laptop covering.

    The Ape Who Came in from the Cold

    Another t-shirt, this one illustrates yeti's double grappling of two mountain peaks.

    Yeti Attack movie on youtube

    According to this site, a Swiss yeti is the only type of yeti capable of climbing trees.
    Since like when?!

    Yeti & Wombat, best friends 4ever!

    Yeti, you are everything I'm not

  • The entry in the Great Sketch Experiment entitled Loose Cannon has a special cameo!

  • Yeti Heart T-shirt

  • They didn't have to make this animatronic prop out of yak hair, but they did! Now that's attention to detail.
