My most-stolen image.

This is a local cryptid, sort of like Bigfoot but goatier. Supposedly he was a scientist who experimented on goats, and in an epic instance of karmic backlash somehow his experiments backfired and turned him into a half-goat monstrosity. Understandably unhappy with his situation in life, he's been killing pets and haunting lover's lanes in PG county since the late 70's.

Photoshop Elements, stock photos and a lot of free time.
This was done for the 'fake cryptid' contest over on io9.com. Didn't win, but that's OK, the winning chop was pretty darn cute.

Excellently illustrated, and the beginning to an epic story.

Yep, I see it all over the place too - it only bugs me when people slap their own watermark on it. Can't do much about it, tho.

Well yeah it's totally fake, but it can be that hot depending on where you live.

Not really. I live in Texas, one of the hottest states, and at 5 AM even in the dead of summer its usually in the 70s. 5 AM is the coolest time of day so it wouldn't make sense for it to be 87. :P
