Bigfoot Update

Tim the Yowie Man concerned for legendary beast's abominable reputation | Weird True Freaky | "Territory Yowie researcher Andrew McGinn yesterday told the Northern Territory News the dog's death - in which its head was ripped from its body - could be the work of the Bigfoot-like beast.

But Tim the Yowie Man, a former economist who turned his hand to Yowie research after spotting a hairy beast on a bushwalk 15 years ago, said he was concerned the Yowie was being incorrectly portrayed as an aggressive creature.

'In over 150 years of Yowie reports all over Australia, I've never heard of a Yowie ripping an animal's head off,' he told The Northern Territory News."

I remember when "yowie!" was an exclamatory expression, not a type of hairy creature...
Maybe the expression went out along with "swell", which, I must admit, I still use (very) occasionally.
