I am jealous of the lady and the deer

The entity behind Mad Mod Poet God is no stranger to "ILTY" (aka this blog). We've linked long ago to the artist's random unfinished drawing of a ukulele playing yeti serenading a half-naked hula girl. Now, this time with permission, we present other yeti-related works for further inclusion:

Apelad does yeti

I already admired Apelad. Apelad is responsible for most of the 700 Hobos of John Hodgmania. My friend Emily just alerted me to the existence of his yeti from his Alphabet of Monsters series. Rejoice!

Wendigo is in there too, as is Troll - and if you ask me, they're all one and the same (especially if located within the Asian mountain range which separates the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau). Rejoice!

Yeti is so much on display, it hurts

I didn't realize yeti was in need of saving, but according to the impassioned plea emblazoned on this t-shirt, there is endangering going on.

Now for the time of imagery...

Yeti, my instructions: "Put your hands in the air like you just don't care."

Song heard on the grammophone: "You've got those yeti feet, because your shoes refuse to ever grow hairy."

Some of the finest artistic hands have put their fingers into intricately reproducing the Man-Beast into a kind of poetry of lineation.

It is a morning ritual for the children of the village to don fur suits and march as one in a kind of approximation of a bunch of yeti going on a parade, especially if said yeti are child-sized and have otherwise ordinary human heads.

Abominable Snowman coming through!

Poetry is the music of the yeti

Multi-talented "I Love the Yeti" reader, Vera, has graciously permitted my posting of two of her yeti poems for the enlightenment of the public.

I wish I were a Yeti

I wish I were a Yeti
Somewhere in the mountains
A Yeti on a journey with his father
Who reads Lermontov to him, at night.
A Yeti lying awake at night,
With glowing eyes,
Outside, under the stars,
Somewhere in the mountains,
And wishing to be a Phoenician
Or a satrap of Alexander the Great.
Or some other impossible thing.

Heady Yeti

He is someone
Silent and sincere,
That, when in need
Will fight for you and pray.
Only when you have a Yeti,
That laughs with you and cries,
Only then could you say
I have a Yeti,
and it’s heady.

Who is hangin' with yeti these days? Let's sneak up on him and snap a picture and then publish it. Yeti should have thought twice about protecting his privacy when he chose to become such a huge international sensation.

Oldies but Goodies


Yeti no happy being found out like this.

CAPTION TEXT: "We, the creatures your kind have called Abominable Snowmen... We shall inherit the earth, We shall rule where men once walked... And neither you nor your puny-powered fellows can do anything to stop us!"

Apparently, the Abominable Snowmen are responsible for the white goo that is coating everyone so dramatically.

Who are the "puny-powered fellows"? That's what I want to know. I want to know so I can join their ranks. Puny-powered fellows, heed my cry! Accept me as a member.

Beware "The Yeti Sanction". Yeti is green and can hurl henchmen at you with ease. All this at more at "The Yeti Sanction".

Tarzan is King of the Apes, so it's only natural he would seek out one of his more elusive subjects. Tarzan is so bad ass that he can enter the frozen wastes still wearing only his leopard skin. And see how he's armed with a bow-and-arrow? Tarzan is like the only dude who could get away with it. He sells it, people. By the barrel load!

what you think of sasquatch? not muatch.

This fabulous Tundra Wanderer was found at Big Time Attic.

The yetis really know how to jam.

And how about this one floating in attractive winter-wear?

And these cartoons where gnomes are often contended with?

The True Cowboy Hat

Loyal reader Natron the Great Mighty writes:

I present for your amusement, a translation, fabricated without the use of trivial translation devices, or "dictionaries," of the two yeti comics you linked on your blog: (see here)

1. comic strip

Climber: "Nothin' like a Saturday afternoon to do some Himilaya-ing... Ooof!... Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! The Abominable Snowman!"

Yeti: "Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! The Abominable Lowlandsman!"

2. El Yeti

¡Who has not heard of the Yeti, the Abominable Snowman! This animal fabuloso lives in the snowy heights of the Himilaya. In Tibet they have known of his existence for many centuries, but he who told of it to the rest of the world was the English explorer and alpinist Sir Edmund Hillary.

Whist he was a'climbing Mt. Everest, this explorer encountered some enormous footprints, "precicely those of the Yeti", so said the monks who kept the convent on this mountain, and to demonstrate that they spoke the truth they gave him the cowboy hat of the monster. Very diligent, sir Hillary took it back to England, where some experts declared, "this is a fake cowboy hat; it is made of the pelts of various animals". ¿And what explanation did the monks offer? That they had given an imitation, so that the true cowboy hat would remain well-guarded.


Hats off to Nate!

They Might Be Yetis

Note the tag-line of this book about yeti: "GIANT APE MEN - THE TRUE FACTS". Yes, only here will you get the true facts about the giant ape men. Not like those other books with their false facts. Finally, a book with its authority backed up with redundancy.

The title comes from a Biblical quote describing the time of Noah and his Ark. Some people have taken it pretty literally as you can see here in this cartoon I found:

When I saw this, I immediately thought of the Lord of the Rings. Isn't that bearded fellow Gandalf? And doesn't that make the modern-day people Hobbits? We're all just yuppy Hobbits!

But I digress. There are some people who might very well believe that yeti are a degenerative race of people who survived the Flood. And some would say that they are really Fallen Angels. And then there are those that say yeti is both at the same time. That's what I don't get.

All the yetis in the house say yeah

Does anyone out there speak or read any other languages? I can't understand the text included within El Yeti and this comic strip... I do see "animal fabuloso" and that means the same thing around the world!

The full disclosure on NPR fan and master of snowcraft, Dinanthropoides nivalis, provided by the makers of the single greatest yeti figurine money and a charitable nature can buy.

Loyal reader mad meg found this image of the abominable snowman in BibliOdyssey.

Pat Lewis of Lunchbreak Comics gives us a way to show our yeti pride with this button.
