Large Reptile Coming Out of His Shell

There have been rumors for years of a mythical creature living deep in the waters of a northern Vietnam lake. Some in a village west of Hanoi claimed to be blessed by catching a glimpse of its concave shell as it crested above the surface of their lake.

A national legend tells of a giant golden turtle that bestowed upon the Vietnamese people a magic sword and victory over Chinese invaders in the 16th century.

Whether that sacred turtle has materialized in the 21st century will be a matter of cultural debate among the Vietnamese.

"This is one of those mythical species that people always talked about but no one ever saw," said Geoff Hall, zoo general curator.”


Being mistaken for a mythical aquatic creature is bad enough, but when you find out that Kilmer is really starring in an X-rated version of Tombstone, You get an idea of how much “Iceman” has melted.

In the upcoming nudie musical, entitled TombsBone, Kilmer will effectively reprise his roll in the original film as he assumes the roll of "Dong" Holiday, a swaggering cowboy with a penchant for laudanum and the ladies.

"We've done our best to stay historically accurate." said the film's director, Seymour Butts.

Veteran adult film star Ron Jeremy will play nemesis Ike Clanton, while Jenna Jameson will play Wyatt.
