It was this day in history (March 12, 1994) it was finally confirmed that this iconic picture of the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie (as it prefers to be called in less formal settings) was indeed a hoax. The picture was originally taken back in 1934 and at the age of 90, on his death bed, one of the conspirators of the photo came clean and admitted it was a fake. Fake huh? Then how did Nessie later appear on the episode of The Simpsons? Check mate!
