Serpentis Photoshoppus Terrifies Villagers in Borneo


A member of a disaster team monitoring flood regions in Borneo by helicopter who perhaps also knows Adobe Photoshop has released this photo of a mythical monster apparently familiar to folks in the region:

"People who have studied the photograph of the shape taken from the air have dismissed suggestions that it's a log. As one writer asked: 'A log can't be that winding, can it?' Others have suggested it's a speedboat, but this has been dismissed because of the twisting wake. The most common accusation is that the photo has simply been manipulated on a computer, while others complain that the river is a different colour to the real Baleh rover which is a murky brown. But villagers who insist the snake exists say that photos of the creature being taken in different parts of the river prove it is swimming about."

  3. You know, as a general rule I'm not that inclined to believe anything said by someone who could be described as a "villager."

  5. I'm surprised in this day and age of Photoshopmania, that anyone would think it's real.

    You don't have to be an expert to tell there are some very manipulated pixels in that photo.

  8. Why is this news? Because it plays on ignorant villager stereotypes? Maybe they don't have the exposure to know better in their insular world, but then that's expected, who cares?
