A public announcement being circulated by certain unnamed individuals, which was share here earlier, has been removed due to a request from the organization that put it out. Apparently they are having a very private, exclusive party (you aren’t invited) and they never wished for the details to be made public.
Ooops, someone let something private become public. Obviously, that never happens on the Internet. Keel is laughing his head off someplace.
This all regarded the passing of John Keel on July 3, 2009.
Within, indeed, the now-underground announcement was mention of a secret Viking funeral too. You were suppose to bring a candle. I suggested a torch.
As I did so much to gather images that Keel would have found funny, I’ll post those below anyway, as the foods he liked (tuna, peanut butter, canned ravioli, pudding, Spam, White Castle hamburgers and nothing green) were mentioned.
Images had been added to the announcement to supply the Keelian sense of humor visual value by Loren Coleman. Probably not attending, with or without burgers, are the “White Castle girls,” shown below.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
