Martin proudly presented his photo of the Loch Ness monster to the world. He became an immediate sensation, an honored guest on talk shows, even garnered a cameo appearance on a Baywatch reunion episode in which the entire incident was recreated. His animated accounts of the legendary water creature charmed and engrossed audiences. He related how it had popped its head out of the water, turned towards him, given a sly wink, then waved its disproportionately small arms in his direction before vanishing again into the depths. It had to be true. People just didn't imagine things like that, not in so much detail. Fortunately Martin had had his camera and enough wits about him to capture the moment for all eternity, as proof of what he had seen. The photograph was later borrowed and scrutinized by marine biologists using computer enhancements combined with other state of the art methods, and finally discredited as an insidiously cheap hoax. It wasn't Nessie at all whose image Martin presented them with. It was an alien being flitting across a corn field. No one ever believed Martin again.

The Loch Ness Monster's nickname is Nessie.And I object to this raw display of pornography. Plainly this is a nude woman flaunting her breasts at the camera seductively. Children might be looking at this site! This picture is obscene! For shame.

Thanks for the correction. I've fixed it. I must have been asleep when I wrote the story. In fact, I was asleep when I wrote it (2 AM). I've changed it to Nessie, but my error will remain immortalized in your comment.

As a Scot I can state definitely. This is Tiger Woods strolling across the sixteenth green at St. Andrews: it must be a fake as Nessie does not play Golf...

See this is why he didnt say it was an alien. Do one ever even notices the aliens anymore. They have become a bore. *giggles*

I can't say if dis thing is Nessie as I am no paleontologist nor scottish(I only heard it was a kind of plesiosaurus, although de thing dispayed by the photograph is obviousely standing. Yes it is)
But as for Martin's credibility, I can tell he is over all suspicion.
