Not Yeti Friday - A Little R&R

I recently checked my web statistics and was surprised, given the blog's title and subject matter, that my most popular posts - the ones where I got the most hits - are not actually about yetis. Rather, my most popular are the two where I posted pictures of Rasputin and Red pandas.

So in honor of the new year, I would like to give you people what you apparently want most: a little R&R.

















Bonus Not Yeti News!

Unless you've had your finger in your ears this last week, you've heard about the (Not) Yeti finger. For the crypto-curious, you can read Coleman's Cryptomundo Commentary.

Stokes Yeti

Zagor vs. Yeti

Zagor is an Italian super-hero still popular in Croatia and Serbia. In the comic, Zagor is an American living in a Pennsylvania forest in the 1820s.

I'm not sure how he ended up fighting yeti in issue # 272.

I suppose such things are inevitable.

Happy Boxing Day

Sorry, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and some other Commonwealth nations. I am co-opting "Boxing Day" to be about the Yeti Crab.

Not Yeti Friday - Rübezahl

Legend tells of a wild, white-haired giant who walks about in the high mountains with a tree staff in one hand.

Nope, not who you're thinking.

Legend tells of a jolly man with a big white beard who loves children and gives presents.

Nope, still not who you're thinking.

Rübezahl is his name.

But to call him that will incur his wrath. Better to call him the more respectable "Lord of the Mountains" or "Lord John".

He is a character from German folklore.

He's a proto-Santa. And a proto-yeti kinda, too.
