White Lighning-ah!, 26 June 2014
Author: Bezenby from United Kingdom

In North Wisconsin way back in the hills, lived a Bigfoot and he had him a kid. He attacked some hunters when the sun went down but one survived and made it back into town. Mighty mighty freezing, Bigfoot kept on teasing, they called him White Lightening.

Policemen, Townsfolk, the mine owner too, searching for the place where he rested his big foot. They were looking trying to hook him but Bigfoot kept on wookie-ing - White Lightening.

Bill Rebane's the guy who made this stew, of Bigfoot and his little kid too. I took one glimpse and then I knew, as my eyes glazed over and my face turned blue. Low budget madness, Buck Flowers is a bad arse – Whew – White Lightning.

Policeman, little kids, the mine owner too, catching that Bigfoot and slinging him in a zoo. They were looking trying to hook him but Bigfoot kept on cooking – White Lightening.

Well the mine owner came and he said I'm mighty tough. I think I want to catch that powerful fud. He went real crazy when he took Bigfoot down and I heard him laughing through out the town. Might mighty pleasin' his knackers must be freezin' -they call him - White Lightening.

Well the policeman, townsfolk, mine owner too. Getting all killed trying to catch Bigfoot. It's not as good as Rana but it's better than Twister's. White Lightning.
