Our Christmas offering this year--three clips strung together in rather haphazard fashion for your amusement...

editor's note-youtube/microsoft trivia dept:

The video was flagged with a copyright notice for the music cue on the last segment, called "Blossoming". This seems odd because the music came from the Windows10 video editing app (see below). One would think that Microsoft would've acquired the usage rights for songs when stocking its music library. but we guess not.

Home Of The Bat Boy?*, Part I

*The Weekly World News clippings prominently displayed
at Lost World Caverns would have visitors believe that Bat Boy was found there. 
However, our research has found conflicting information indicating 
he was discovered in Hell Hole Cave, over 100 miles away.

The truth is down there...somewhere, and TSG will get back to you
when we find it.

You've Heard Of "Foothills"...

...but what about "Leg hills"?

Or, perhaps, more accurately, leg-and-foot hills?

Face(s) Off

A selection of those "put your face here" boards seen on the trip so far. 
The original plan was to copy and paste some humorous visages into the blanks, 
but that turned out to be a bit more work than we had patience for at post time.
