Default Mongolian Death Worm

Wondering if my THT brethren have a take on this?


Two New Zealanders will leave for Mongolia's Gobi Desert next week on an ambitious expedition to find the fabled acid-spitting and lightning-throwing Mongolian death worm.

The worm has never been documented but some Mongolians are convinced it exists. They call it Allghoi Khorkhoi, or "intestine worm" because it resembles a cow's intestine and is about 1.5m long.

They say it jumps out of the sand and kills people by spitting concentrated acid or shooting lightning from its rectum over long distances. ...

"I have no intention of grabbing it, capturing it, stuffing it, or anything like that."





The acid spitting and lightning from it's rectum might dissuade me too.

I know for a fact that they do exist.

My neighbor is married to one.

After that they can come over here and go on a snipe hunt. I will supply the pillow cases and flashlights.

I hope this is like a snipe hunt because I don't know what you do when you "find" this creature and it jumps out of the sand spitting acid and shooting lightning out of its arse.

Just the rumor there might be something in the Gobi desert that shoots lightening bolts out of its ass is enough to keep me from going there.

Hell, a jalapeno eating worm just ain't natural.

I don't know about the "spitting acid", but I HAVE shot lightning from my rectum - using a match or cigarette lighter.

Default Love the ad at the bottom when I read all the way through

It's for eating disorder forums. Google's search engine must have picked up on the lightning ass comment.

I wonder what one of them there pet Mongolian arc-welders would cost....

I mean, getting the flux and the arc out of one animal is pretty cool....






hey, come to think of it....you reckon this urban Mongolian myth got started one night when Ghengis got a skinfull of vodka in town and accidentally stumbled through somebody's garage and turned a cracker box on? That would be one way to explain all the holes burnt in his new tunic...
