Fla. city mulls ‘Muck Monster’ profits

A West Palm Beach, Fla., official is suggesting the city cash in on reports of a Muck Monster in the Lake Worth Lagoon.

Commissioner Bill Moss said the creature, which has only a YouTube video of unexplained wake as evidence for its existence, could prove a financial boon to the city with pay-by-the quarter telescopes and a feeding area, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported Tuesday.

All indications are that it's prehistoric in nature, because it's not a manatee and it's not a shark, Moss said to laughter from colleagues at a Monday mayor commissioner meeting. A viewing and feeding area by the waterfront would make the Muck Monster officially West Palm Beach's. We can declare it our Muck Monster, and have a naming contest for kids.
