Loch Ness Monster Insurance -$1.5 Million

On the 80th anniversary of the first reported sighting of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, Scottish cruise line Jacobite Cruises, signed a $1.5 million deal to insure their boats against the fabled beast.

The director of the insurance company said, “This is probably the most unusual insurance request we have ever had.” (yea think?)  The owner of Jacobite, Freda Newton said, “I don’t know what the odds of this actually happening might be but this is Loch Ness and how silly would we look if it did and we weren’t covered for it?”

My question is: “How silly do you look for paying $1.5 million to cover it?”

The first photo of Nessie was published in 1934, although it was later revealed to be a trick. Believers in the existence of the monster think the creature is most likely a plesiosaurus, trapped in the Loch from prehistoric times.

Live Long and Prosper....
