Anyone ever hear of this?
And so it goes.
Russia, though it catapulted us into the Space Age, is home to many superstitious people. This is a fun story for Halloween, but not anything that deserves credence. Too, that's a "bigfoot" link. To quote Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, "Red alert!"
No I haven't Henry. Interesting read nonetheless! Thanks.
I remember reading a H.P. Lovecraft short story about a guy who turned out to be descended from something like that ape-woman, but I can't quite remember the title. Perhaps it was based upon this legend?
I'll unleash the powers of Julie K/RobertR/Max Leung onto thee!
First I've heard of this bit of superstition in my readings on Russian folklore. Must have been one of those things the Soviet propaganda machine missed as a prime subject for angry polemics on her furry, oppressed capitalist-stateside brother.
Actually, I think it was just a member of the female Russian Olympic athletics team, training for the 1896 Athens Olympics.
James Randi, I choose you!
I have a very strict policy about ONLY sleeping with sober passed out ape women.
Like other such stories, this is quite possibly an extreme embellishment of a description of an actual person. Sort of like what P.T. Barnum did.
The analogy is quite deliberate on my part.
I wonder if there was such a woman with this problem. Best known, and genetically identified in, Mexico's famous Gomez family...
Ewww, hairy stuff!
