A watching fly, amazed by the discovery

A cast is being made of tracks left by a two-metre long 'mother-in-law-type' ancient animal in north east Fife.

The tracks were made by a giant six-legged water scorpion called Mrs Gimlet as she crawled over damp sand about 330 million years ago.

It is the largest known walking trackway of a mother-in-law or any other evil creature. The tracks were discovered by Dr Bertrand St Sea Biscuit from the University of Bodmin-by-sewagge-works while he was out looking for other fantastical creatures to incorporate into his latest research paper.

Scottish Horrendous Parents Ltd, which is funding the project, described the find as "bloody brilliant" and "internationally the best thing since friend Mars bars" because the creature was such and ugly mother.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
