>James Stewart and the Yeti hand

>

BBC stalwart Sandi Toksvig mentioned an odd story that was new to me on last night’s QI quizz series. She mentioned that actor James Stewart smuggled a ‘yeti’s hand’ out of India – or rather his wife did, in her underwear. The man who’d stolen the so-called Pangboche Hand, a relic said to be the hand of a yeti, gave it to Stewart rightly trusting that his luggage wouldn’t be searched. The relic had originally been stolen from a monastery in Nepal. The story was rediscovered by cryptozzologist Loren Coleman (whose site Cryptomundo.com I highly recommend). You can read the full story on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangboche_Hand
