The Search Continues

February 26, 2015

“The UNIVERSE LEADER in Yeti research must be gone because they didn’t update their WordPress site for years.” Read that out loud until you realize how ridiculous it sounds.

We don’t owe you anything by way of an explanation, but there are concerns about a grant application being rejected without “demonstrable evidence of public engagement.” There are a handful of reasons why we’ve been noticeably absent from the public media interface for our organization (this blog).

First, we exist to research that which has escaped and confounded the convention-bound scientific community, not give you something to read in between watching videos of fat people falling off water slides and filling out per diem forms. So forgive us if we tend to focus primarily on internally-peer reviewed and distributed academic journals. If you were in the right circles you would just know. But you’re not.

That includes you, Rick in Accounting. If the grant were contingent on you doing a terrible job on the employee newsletter, the motor pool would have been upgraded years ago. You’re an organizational albatross and need to retire. He’s been fired once already, but is back, thanks to a poorly-worded contract for which we all resent HR.

Second, we lost the WordPress password. That’s on us. We’ve gone through some staffing changes, as the last full-time writer threw his computer into the Beer Yeti Compound water cistern after IT asked him to send it over for routine maintenance. It’s really all been downhill from there on the PR front. Anyway, we’ve accessed the log in and password, and are back online.

There is data to be presented, prejudices to be drawn into the light (talking to you YETI coolers), and praise to be doled out where it is due. Give us that grant now.

Yeti Concubines Ravage China

October 15, 2010

China is in a world of trouble, and it’s about time they were honest about it.

News of an expedition to seek out the notorious “Yeren” – or Chinese variant of the Yeti – has the greater cryptozoological research community on edge to see just what they come up with. This isn’t the first Chinese expedition to “discover” their local Yeti population. In the 70’s and 80’s the Chinese Academy of Science (which we assume is some kind of local kung fu association) carried out several completely fruitless searches. It’s really no wonder nothing turned up, as our own techniques and methods of Yeti discovery were not employed in any of these ventures.

Now, we said that China is in a world of trouble, and we mean to back up our statement with hard facts and scientific data.

According to this article, the region where Yeren (Yeti) are most frequently sighted also has something of a problem with peasant men being taken advantage of by female Yetis. I think we all can agree that’s not what you want on tourism brochures. “Ming Mysteries Resort: You could get violently used by a Yeti, but our pool area has recently been renovated!”

This from the previously-cited article-

“female members of the wild man species were supposed to have swept into villages in search of sexual partners, ravishing them as they lay paralysed in fear.”

Obviously these Yeti know exactly what they want. We would like to point out that this looks pretty bad for the local Yeti males. What do the Chinese peasant farmers have that a powerful Yeti male doesn’t? Science has yet to speak on this.

One peasant man had a particularly memorable experience – as opposed to the other Yeti assault victims for whom it was mundane.

“One peasant was asleep in his mountain forest hut when, according to an account in a 1983 edition of the Zhejiang Provincial Daily, a ‘wild woman’ with deep blue eyes burst through the door and proceeded to ravish him. “He was too frightened to call out, and was powerless to resist,” the paper reported, “the wild woman slept with him for several minutes and then left.”

While we generally have little time for the ribald humor of the perverts in our maintenance division, Doug did make a valid point during this morning’s sexual harassment workshop. To quote Doug, “Something wasn’t ‘paralyzed in fear’, if you know what I’m sayin'”. Nobody likes Doug, but yes, we do “get” what he’s saying. There are obviously many questions that still need to be answered, both by the Chinese peasant, and Doug to the behavioral inquiry board.

How long have Yeti been around? It’s been a while. During this time of existing, the stories of Yeti women running around giving Chinese men “the business” have been pretty few and far between. Something happened in the 70’s and 80’s to make these solitary beasts suddenly demand …well, you know.

Isn’t it obvious? Only one man in the world has the power and potency to engage in any level of consensual physical relationship with a Yeti. If you haven’t kept up this far, it’s obviously Kim Jong Il.

In seeking a mate worthy of his own virility and capability, Dear Leader was naturally led to the Yeti. It makes perfect sense. Two creatures of unparalleled perception and intensity joined in an explosive union among the wilderness crags.

They must have known he couldn’t stay forever. Korea needed his deft ruling touch to create the worker’s paradise it is today.

We won’t speculate on the details, but obviously something was awakened in the Chinese Yeti population that upset nature’s delicate balance. Having once elevated to post-quantifiable heights of satisfaction and fulfillment by Dear Leader, these Yeti were left to face the emptiness of life without his presence.

Unfortunately, these shells of what were proud and ravenous Yeti have been left to make do with the local population of Chinese peasants. Everyone seems to agree that the peasants are getting the short end of this stick.

It should be very clear that only the person who created this problem can put it to rest once and for all. Now that Dear Leader’s task of cultivating a cultural and humanitarian Shangri La has been accomplished, he must return to the Chinese wilderness to make things right with his former Yeti concubines.

The ball is in his court now. The Beer Yeti is joining the Chinese government ( we assume) in calling for Dear Leader to do what only he can.

Embarrassing Oversight Impedes Blog

October 15, 2010

After a lot of internal turmoil, the universe leader in Yeti research is back in the saddle again.

We may as well go ahead and let our readers know that Rick in Accounting has been let go. It was a decision we didn’t want to make, but when you’re an accountant, and it “slips your mind” to pay the bill for internet services for six months, something has to be done. Dozens of technical reports and field updates have been lost as a result of his oversight. Now our teams are scrambling to rewrite and update everything we believed was already brought to the universe’s attention.

On a positive note, email spam and Facebook invites drastically dropped off over the time Rick was not doing his job. We know you’re reading this Rick, which is possible because NOW WE HAVE INTERNET!

We have a lot of ground to cover, and many reports on our findings to bring to the world. Stay tuned.

2010 Needs Us…Needs Truth

May 7, 2010

Due to a large number of research expeditions scheduled early in the year, The Beer Yeti staff has been occupied with just about everything but keeping the world abreast of our work via this blog.

It looks like we have been missed. In our short absence we noticed the rapid decline of anything resembling truth being disseminated in the mainstream media, and have directed the communications staff to get back to the task of interfacing with the world.

Many thanks to all the readers who have badgered us to return. We would like to say that we’re back exclusively for you, but that would be a lie. Exploitation brought us back. The continued, horrifying objectification of the Yeti and Sasquatch for base personal gain.

You know what we’re talking about, SkyMall.

Anyway, we are back, and looking forward to presenting you with some of our more recent findings. As always, feel free to contact us with relevant stories.

Australia Faces Werewolf Pandemic

December 15, 2009


Artist’s rendering of the Australian National Werewolf Defense Fort at Ayers Rock

Mad Max may exert an undo influence over our general perception of Australia, but recent scientific findings have confirmed that something about that place just isn’t right.

An adjunct, auxiliary, hourly-wage, part-time Beer Yeti apprentice just passed along a report that has most of our staff reevaluating Sydney as the right location for The Beer Yeti’s 2027 Staff Retreat.

A study published in the Australia Medical Journal announced that some people tend to exhibit “werewolf” like behaviors during the full moon.

According to the study, 91 patients in Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital’s emergency room displayed “violent and acute behavioral disturbance.”  This included biting, scratching and spitting at staff members. Nearly 23% of these incidents occurred during the full moon.

One staff member reported that 66% of these subjects were under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The following is taken from her statement-

“It has been reported that the practice of rubbing magic ointment on the skin or inhaling vapor from a magic potion by an alleged werewolf induces metamorphosis.  Not surprisingly, the main ingredients of these ointments and potions were belladonna and nightshade, both of which can produce delirium, hallucinations and delusion of bodily metamorphosis.”

We want to get this right. It took advanced medical education, peer-reviewed medical journals, and large amounts of government funding to determine that some toxicology patients display violent behaviors during the full moon?

We asked our own Native American traditional healer for a statement on the situation, and she said, “Violent drug addicts attack hospital staff in the toxicology department, and they are trying to blame this on lunar cycles? This is completely coincidental, and a waste of the medical community’s time to speculate about.”

So exactly as we guessed right off, Australia is under sever threat of a werewolf pandemic.

All that training and money, and the Australian medical field is still struggling to understand what any cryptozoologist – or even alchemist – could have pointed out.

You know who displays “werewolf-like” behaviors during the full moon. Werewolves do.

If this hospital alone dealt with 91 cases of werewolves, we can only imagine that the worst is yet to come. It is time to declare national emergency, and deal with the werewolf onslaught before things get totally out of control.

In times like this, we generally have two “go to” strategies.

The first is always “What would Buffy Summers do?” and the second is “If Buffy did bite the dust by going with the first plan, how would Bruce Willis save our bacon?”

These protocols generally do not mesh well with fire drills.

The one clear solution is for Australia to fall back on the Swiss strategy of the “National Redoubt“, or in layman’s terms, “a big fort.” If anyone had to pick the perfect place to fend off a werewolf assault, it is unthinkable that they would choose any place but Uluru (Ayers Rock).

This massive rock formation in the middle of nowhere is just begging for a little tunneling and fortification.

The Aboriginal peoples might have some qualms about using the sacred rock as a werewolf fort, but that is only because they have never seen a werewolf pandemic. Government negotiators will have to hammer out the details, but eventually the question will have to be answered, “What sounds worse, breaking Dreamtime taboos, or getting eaten by a werewolf from Perth?”

Our very concise opinion would be that the Australian government begin immediate fortification of, and withdrawal to, Uluru in order to survive the coming werewolf war. Most likely the entire economy needs to be focused exclusively on preparation for this necessity. Our suggestion would be to put Steven Seagal and Dolph Lundgren in joint control of a more immediate “Werewolf Suppression Task Force.”

Of course the Australian government can also choose to mock us, and ignore our recommendations.

It’s no skin off The Beer Yeti’s back. We already have a werewolf fort.

Virginians Uncover Sasquatch Feces

December 10, 2009

Now available for lectures

A group of Sasquatch seekers in Virginia is blazing new trails in cryptozoological inquiry.

According to Billy Willard, founder of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia, a team of Sasquatch seekers recently came across samples of “suspicious feces” while scouring the West Virginian wilderness for Bigfoot.

Willard told West Virginian Public Broadcasting that while they found “suspicious feces,” and made casts of footprints, they did not actually spot the elusive biped.

“Typically we go out and visit sites where there’s been previous sighting reports,” Willard said. “We do get encounters called in to a hot line that we have, and we go out and we’ll research those areas looking for evidence such as footprints, strange stick tree structures and that kind of thing.”

Mr. Willard went on to state that though he has never personally beheld a Sasquatch, he firmly believes they exist.

I could accept that this thing is human, whether it’s an undiscovered Native American tribe of people, I could accept that this is some kind of North American ape that just simply hasn’t been documented yet,” he said. “Those are the two main theories.”

Our Field Operations Planning Committee (FOPC) is abuzz with how to assimilate Mr. Willard’s statements into their own excursions afield. Specifically, how does one go about identifying and categorizing “suspicious feces”?

This pretty much dominated our staff meeting this morning, as various employees on FOPC wanted to know what characteristics of fecal material found in the woods qualify it as “suspicious,” and if they get a bonus for having to collect samples.

Unfortunately, Sasquatch Watch of Virginia has been lax in posting their “Suspicious Feces Identification Standards” on the organizational website, so this debate will most likely be ongoing.

Unlike other recently addressed Bigfoot research groups, we feel that Mr. Willard has an open mind, and is most likely not a shape-shifter.

Much more time and research will have to be dedicated to investigating one of the “two main theories,” namely that Sasquatch is an undiscovered Native American tribe roaming around West Virginia. Tribal elders of First Nations traditionally residing in West Virginia will need to be extensively interviewed before The Beer Yeti can officially comment on this postulation.

Should the Sasquatch be tax exempt? This is just one of the ramifications of Mr. Willard’s theory.

More on that to come shortly.

If you have encountered a Sasquatch, or come across “suspicious feces,” we encourage you to reward the hard work of the good folks at SWV by letting them know via this hotline: (703) 445-4287

Werewolves or Sasquatch? NACRC Reports

December 9, 2009

NACRC Report Overwhelms Greater Cryptozoological Research Community

This is an exciting day for all of us at The Beer Yeti.

While we frequently collaborate with other similarly minded crypto-research groups on field exploration and laboratory initiatives, rare is the occasion that we are able to share these findings through our public interfacing mechanism ( for Jeff in Accounts Payable, that means “this site”).

After a series of troubling cryptid sightings sprang up in Wisconsin, we were deeply concerned that the right perspective be brought in to analyze the data. With our own field agents engaged in a top secret research assignment, there was only one clear option: NACRC.

While little known in convention-bound academic circles, the North American Cryptozoological Research Collective ( NACRC) has been dropping”mind bombs” in the greater cryptozoological research community for a long time now. Just when you think no answer can be found to explain a sighting, NACRC is on hand to deliver double barrels of insight. That certainly holds true for the Wisconsin Werewolf sightings.

– The Beer Yeti

OFFICIAL N.A.C.R.C. FIELD REPORT

We were very pleased when The Beer Yeti contacted us at the North American Cryptalzoological Research Collective (NACRC) about giving our expert analysis on a recent rash of werewolf sightings in the Wisconsin.

People are far too quick to explain away these sightings as large wolf or a bear, but it’s this very ‘only in the box’ type of thinking that has gotten us into this mess in the first place.

One of our key principles  here at NACRC  is that boxes suck. This philosophy makes moving a lot harder and Cryptozoology a lot easier.

So instead of instantly dismissing the possibility of a Werewolf, Sasquatch, or Shapeshifter, let us look at all the options and allow science and truth to prevail.

Steve Krueger who encountered one of the beasts in 2006 described it as “Big, black,hairy, having pointed ears, standing on its hind legs (Bipedal),  a snout larger than a bear’s, and between 6-7 feet tall.”

Some may claim that Steve was just on an acid trip, and had seen Dog Soldiers one too many times, but Mr. Krueger was on the job. Who would want to risk a cushy Government job by doing acid, when you can easily wait till 5 O’clock to get your fill?

Dillon Ruder who also sighted something in his back yard described it as a “Hairy monster.” Author and Journalist Linda Godfrey describes it as a “Man-wolf” her best guess is that it’s a “Super-evolved timber wolf that can stand on its hind legs (Bipedal).”

Katie Zahn describes seeing three of the creatures while hiking with some friends.  She describes them as “Not human, wolf-like creatures that knelt down by a creek and drank water out of their hands.”

So, some general characteristics that we have to go by are.
1)    LARGE (6’-7’)

2)    HAIRY
3)    BIPEDAL
4)    HAVING POINTED EARS
5)    NOT HUMAN, but possessing some Humanoid characteristics
