REPTILIAN HUMANOID CRYPTID MAKES A REAPPEARANCE …

|| By FITSNEWS || In the latest indictment of South Carolina’s atrocious government-run education system, citizens in the Pee Dee region of the Palmetto State are in a tizzy over the return of the “Lizard Man” (a.k.a. the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp, the Lizard Man of Lee County).

A rumored red-eyed, reptilian humanoid cryptid standing seven-feet-tall, the Lizard Man was first allegedly spotted in June of 1988 by a 17-year-old man named Christopher Davis – who was changing his tire on the side of a Lee County road.

According to Davis, the reptile charged him and leapt onto the roof of his vehicle as he sped away.

“I saw red eyes glowing,” Davis said at the time.  “I ran into the car and as I locked it, the thing grabbed the door handle. I could see him from the neck down – the three big fingers, long black nails and green rough skin. It was strong and angry. I looked in my mirror and saw a blur of green running. I could see his toes and then he jumped on the roof of my car. I thought I heard a grunt and then I could see his fingers through the front windshield, where they curled around on the roof. I sped up and swerved to shake the creature off.”

A few weeks later the Lizard Man reportedly mauled (and attempted to eat) a car near Bishopville, S.C.

Sporadic Lizard Man sightings were reported over the next few years, briefly causing a national sensation – as well as a merchandising boon for the dirt poor county (which hosts a “Lizard Man Run” and sells “Lizard Patrol” T-shirts).

Anyway, four years after the most recent “sighting” in 2011, a woman from Sumter, S.C. identified only as “Sarah” sent local television station WCIV TV 4 (ABC – Charleston, S.C.) a photo she claims to have taken after leaving church on Sunday.

“My hand to God, I am not making this up,” Sarah told the station.

Here’s the image …

Ummm … yeah.

Sarah’s sighting prompted another local man to send the television station a twenty-second video he claims features the mythical creature.

Here’s that clip …

The Lizard Man was the subject of an April 2009 episode of the series Destination Truth – which concluded the creature was a hoax. It’s also been featured on Mysteries of the Museum and Monsters and Mysteries in America.

Our guess?  This new “evidence” will do nothing to alter the “hoax” conclusion … although if it sells hucksters Lee County a few “Lizard Patrol” T-shirts, more power to them.

Never has a marriage been more appropriate than that of The Lizard Man and FITSNews, and its most-loyal readers. It is a PERFECT Match.

This is YOUR kind of story. You are so right for each other.

If you don’t like FITSnews, you don’t have to come here.

But that would be no fun for you, would it? So instead, you piss and moan like the impotent asshole you are are.

You’re a hypocrite.

First sign of mental illness is repetition without cause, usually coupled with the lack of self awareness.

So for example, if someone is obsessed with someone/something to the degree of mental illness, they would not only lack the ability to explain their obsession but they would also be unaware of the judgement of the people witnessing them. This lack of awareness can be extreme, many mentally ill people can’t even tell you specifically what year it is, let alone day/date.

Even you can’t come up with a reason for pinning this on public schools, But that does not prevent you from trying to do so. Typical of the right wing media. How do we know the guy in the suit is not the administrator of one of SC worst in the nation private schools.

That just might be Reverend Billy Bob, trying to prove to the kids at Christians are Us White Flight Academy that at least one dinosaur made it on to Noah’s Ark.

Nice claymation Lizard Man. Well, it is better than I could have done, at least. Unfortunately, this one is kind of purple or maybe blue and not green. Maybe it is the offspring of Original Lizard Man after Barney the dinosaur corn holed him.

At least the bigfoot costume was somewhat plausible, with the shaky camera and distance adding to just a hint of mystery. But this thing just looks like some toy monster they sell at Wal-Mart.

I don’t know about the majority of locals but he got his fifteen minutes out of it. I seem to recall him being on the old Tonight Show and possibly other national shows, telling his story. As I recall, he moved to Sumter and was murdered some years ago, possibly while trying to buy some weed. Far as I know the guy wasn’t mean and never tried to harm anyone.
