An English explorer was taking part in an expedition to the Himalayas.
Led by a grizzled local guide, they ascended one of the less frequently
climbed peaks. Roughly halfway up the side of the mountain, a member of
the expedition came across a set of large manlike tracks in the snow.

"Yeti tracks," the sherpa said with a gruff voice as he passed them.
"One thing you must know before we proceed; do not, under any
circumstances, touch the yeti."

The expedition heeded his warning and continued to climb the slope.
Night fell, and the explorers set up their tents. In the dead of night,
the Englishman awoke to the sound of his tent entrance unzipping. Half-
asleep, he looked up to see an enormous eight-foot yeti standing above

In fear for his life the explorer jumped up and ran out of the tent, 
banging into the yeti in the process. The yeti, after being touched by
the explorer let out a deafening howl and began to chase the explorer
down the slope.

The explorer ran away from the camp as quickly as his legs could take
him. After he rounded a corner he looked behind him to see the bounding
form of the yeti still chasing him.

So the explorer continued to run, reaching the bottom of the mountain in 
just two days, exhausted he paused to rest awhile. After just a few 
moments, the explorer began to hear the soft 'thud thud thud' of yeti
feet on snow, he looked up the slope to see the yeti still chasing him
and only moments away.

The explorer took off again, reaching a supply shack a couple of miles 
away, once there quickly buying a mountain bike and pedaling his way to
the nearest town, some fifty miles away. The journey took him several
days over the rough terrain and after his arrival he booked into a hotel
to recuperate.

Two days later the man left his hotel to see about booking transport
back to England. As soon as he turned around though he saw the form of
the yeti on the horizon, bounding towards him at great speed. Horrified
by this sight, the explorer hurriedly bought a car and drove it away
from the village all the way to Delhi. Once he arrived, the man wasted
no time in getting on the next plane to London.

After his arrival back in London, the man went back to his London home
for a while to recover and to plan his next expedition. He had been
there less than two weeks and was gazing out of a window when he saw a
familiar large bounding, manlike creature running down his street; the
man couldn't believe it - somehow the yeti had followed him to England!

The man had little choice but to run away again, he used any means he 
could, bike, car, or on foot to try to escape the yeti, but each time he 
looked behind him, it was just moments before the yeti came into view.

Eventually the man made it all the way to Edinburgh and from there ran
into the open Scottish countryside. He continued to run but the yeti
just kept getting closer and closer, and in the end the man could run no

With the yeti less than a minute away from him, the man finally stopped
and turned around to face the oncoming creature. With the last of his
strength he stood up straight as the yeti caught up with him. The eight-
foot tall yeti towered above the man, who could only stare in terror.  

The yeti extended his hand and poked the Englishman squarely in the
chest with one long finger, and in a low rumbling voice the yeti said:
"Tag! You're it!"
