>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
