Yeti Footprint Reportedly Found in Himalayas

Japanese explorers excitedly announced Monday that they'd found a footprint left by an Abominable Snowman on Dhaulagiri, one of the tallest of the Himalayas.

"The footprints were about 20 centimeters [eight inches] long and looked like a human's," Yoshiteru Takahashi, head of something called Yeti Project Japan, told Agence France-Presse in Kathmandu, Nepal.

However, an eight-inch foot would amount to about a size zero shoe size for an adult American male, meaning that this particular yeti may be rather short of stature.

"This means nothing," Dr. Takahashi said when asked about the possibility of a miniature yeti, "we Asians we tiny little things when standing next to normal modern human and particularly someone like Shaquille O'neal, yes, so maybe this yeti he also eat nothing but rice too, no?"
