The Mongolian Death Worm

Since the beginning of time there have been great tales of mythical creatures roaming the Earth; The Loch Ness Monster, The Abominable Snowman, Big Foot and the Kraken just to name a few, but one of the most formidable beasts surely has to be the Mongolian Death Worm.

Well our journey is set to be such a huge adventure as it is, driving a crappy car all that way over rubbish roads etc. etc. but why not use the journey to do something worthwhile and is going to make the world a better place, Ok so there is our charity fundraising which is going to help change peoples lives but the opportunity to track down a mythical creature and stamp our mark on history is definitely worth a bit of our time!!

The allghoi Khorkhoi as it is known to the Mongolians translates to “Blood filled intestine worm”, it is an ancient beast which has plagued the Gobi Desert for centuries. It is described as a fat, bright red worm, two to four feet long, it is claimed to “spew forth a yellow poison that is lethal on contact, and its purported ability to kill at distance by means of electric discharge.”

It is believed to roam in the prohibited region of the Mongol/ Chinese border, there have been a number of expeditions over the years but no scientific evidence has been produced to prove the beast’s existence but well it’s the same story for the Loch Ness Monster and we all know that definitely exists (Ted Danson made a film about and he was in Cheers so it got to be true).

On capturing the said ‘Death Worm,’ we will of course stick it in the back of the SJ and bring it back to the UK. We will then use it in an amazing stage show where it will fall in love with a beautiful girl, escape and slither to the top of Canary Warf or such other tall British Landmark (The Gurkin, Big Ben or that skyscraper in Manchester). John and I will then go up and kill it and it will plummet to the ground in King Kong fashion. We will probably then get Peter Jackson to make a movie blockbuster about it.
