Breaking News -- Big Foot Update


Stop the presses! This just in:


An astute reader (thank you, Alias Liz Jones) has just informed me that the much-heralded Georgia Bigfoot discovery was, in fact, a not so cleverly devised hoax by two charlatans from my own (sob) state. Upon further investigation at FOXNews.com I also confirmed the sad news. It seems that the 2 Georgia boys at the center of the controversy concocted the entire story, created a frozen faux Sasquatch popsicle, and then sold their "find," (freezer and all) to a guy who no doubt believed the thing was real. As ominous evidence mounted against its authenticity and the frozen piece of folk-lore thawed, so did the purchaser's hopes; and dare I say, so did the hopes of the world. It seemed that, with this anthropological discovery, the world was on the verge of something great: something akin to 8 gold medals in the Olympics, the 8th great wonder, or maybe even world peace. However, it turns out that what was really in the freezer was actually a plastic Halloween costume. And now the home boys have fled with this poor man's money. Oh, the irony. I think this quote about the Georgia boys on the duped man's website pretty much sums up the entire ordeal: "On behalf of myself I can say with certainty Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer [are] not the best Bigfoot trackers in the world!"

Hey, it's not the end of the world. Apparently the freezer works great.

Are you kidding me? That Halloween costume in a chest freezer wasn't real? Let me go retreat from the world and reconsider my entire belief structure. *sigh*

I heard this on the news this morning that one of the "discoverers" (aka big fibbers) is also now finding himself suddenly unemployed. . . as he was in law enforcement. . . & his boss didn't think to highly of his hoax. Good call.

Yea the quote says it all.

Maybe it's all relative. Perhaps those boys weren't lying. They said that they had 'big foot' In a way, they did. The should have made it clear that it was 'THE' big foot. It is good that the freezer works great. Maybe the freezer calmed hostility a bit.

Coincidentally, my son was online last week and called, (well,yelled) for me when he saw this article about finding Big Foot online! He was quite excited about it in a "13 year old kind of way". I'll have to give him the bad news now......*sniff*
