Lhasa, Tibet – When little Kellie Campbell set out to visit exotic Tibet last month, she knew she was in store for some new experiences, but she never dreamed her adventures would include a face-to-face meeting with the infamous Abominable Snowman.
“I was kinda hoping to meet the Dali Lama,” said Kellie, “but this was even cooler!”
According to Kellie, it all happened when she was traipsing across the snow covered Himalayas on her way to India. She had been warned by several natives to be on the lookout for the notorious Yeti – as the Abominable Snowman is known by the locals, but she dismissed their concerns as simply a legend. “I grew up listening to stories about Sasquatch,” said Kellie, “so I was pretty skeptical about this huge albino dude everyone was talking about.”
Kellie recalled she was trudging through the snow when a huge bear-like creature popped up out of nowhere. “He nearly knocked me off my yak!” exclaimed Kellie.
What ensued was a classic battle of David vs. Goliath, with Kellie minus a slingshot. “I knew I had to defend myself somehow,” Kellie explained, “so I just reached for the two biggest snowballs I could find.” Unbeknownst to Kellie, the “snowballs” were actually the Yeti’s gonads, and her quick thinking and vise-like grip probably saved her life.
“As souvenirs go, they won’t look very pretty on my mantle,” said Kellie, “but you’ve got to admit, they’re great conversation starters.”
