Isn't it crazy what people can come up with?
Over here in Maryland we have really silly legends.

We have the legend of Chessie. The giant sea serpent that supposedly lives in the Chesapeake Bay.

We have a legend about a goatman. He's half-man and half-goat. It's said he was a scientist experimenting on goats until an experiment went awry and he turned into the goatman. It's said he went crazy and started attacking cars with an axe.
Some say it's demonic in nature and might be the devil himself.

My favorite is of course the silliest one. The Snallygaster is a gigantic dragon-bird thing that's name come from Schneller Geist meaning quick ghost. It has one eye and sometimes sprouts tentacles out of it's mouth. It's been said that it swoops down and picks people up with it's hook like claws and takes them away. It's also been said to sucks people blood with it's metallic beak full of razor-sharp teeth. It's mortal enemy is the Dwayyo which is a giant (bearsized), black, werewolf-like monster with a bushy tail. It's been said president Theodore Roosevelt wanted to hunt down the Snallygaster and kill it.
Here are some artist's renditions.


People are silly.
Are there any strange legend where you're from? Please share.

It isn't a legend.

It is real.

Be ready when it appears.
