57. Monsters Like Poorly-Marked Hiking Trails

You’ve been there. In the middle of the woods, with a map that doesn’t look right and a misleading signpost. Which direction should you go?

You could go left, and head uphill toward potential daylight and scenic overlooks.

Or you could go right, which looks to peek around a cliff face. It’s probably super dangerous. Your girlfriend is scared. And you both think you just heard the howl of some large, lumbering creature coming from that direction.

Let’s face it. You’re going to go right.

Good news is, it’s not a bear or a wolf or a rabid raccoon. (Way to be paranoid, Courtney.)

Bad news is, it is still going to kill you, dismember your bodies, and turn you into an urban legend.

Next time, make sure the map is right side up.
