Ogopogo is real, I talk to him all the time. Yes, he speaks English but early-modern English like in Shakespeare's time.

It's just a wave. A wave from a boat or current can last a longggg time on a calm surface like that. I swear someone posts a video like this at least once a year.


No - it is definitely Ogopogo. I saw him on a floaty going down the river channel - AND - he's in big trouble - he floated right past the sign that says "STOP - Do Not Pass This Sign"

Wrong. No one was talking about servants, and "maid" has more than one definition, in Mike Br.'s context it refers to young lady. :biggrin:

mer = sea
maid = young woman
