SHOCKINGLY CLOSE TO THE TRUTH
Tourism officials at Loch Ness made a shocking revelation today – the Loch Ness Monster is a creation of their marketing department.
"It all started back in the early years of the 20th century," says Nigel Pratt, Public Relations Manager for the Loch Ness Convention and Visitors Bureau. "You have to remember that Scotland was very poor back then. Tourists generally went to vacation hotspots like Blackpool. It was tough to compete. "Highlander" hadn't come out yet so nobody knew the first thing about Scotland. They didn't know their haggis from a hole in the ground."
