Sasquatch Evidence Update
Results from tests on genetic material from alleged remains of one of the mythical half-ape and half-human creatures, made public at a news conference on Friday held after the claimed discovery swept the Internet, failed to prove its existence.
This coverage by the mainstream media was all started by the release of a photograph of a hairy heap, bearing a close resemblance to a shaggy full-body gorilla costume, stuffed into a container resembling a refrigerator.The two men who "discovered" (I love the use of scientific words in stories like these) apparently are a correctional officer and a policeman on disability. Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, the two who say they discovered the Bigfoot corpse while hiking in the woods of northern Georgia.
They also are co-owners of a company that offers Bigfoot merchandise. Wow! What an amazing coincidence!
Here's a video where they tout their services as bigfoot trackers (pops a new window for you)
Here's another where they have a 'scientist' (he wasn't, and was later outed as the brother of one of the guys) talking about the bigfoot corpse. (pops a new window too)
Seriously, check those videos out.
Now - a couple things that I'd like to discuss. First off, why was the news media - including highly vaulted entities such as the New York Times giving this any attention? Are we so completely out of news that we have to treat THIS as news?
Second, and more importantly, the thing about this hoax that amazes me and that absolutely no one has brought up:
If the pile of opossum they produced is 4% human - who was it?
For the rest of you, who might be finding this link via the interwebs, or on a google search - looking for Sasquatch or Bigfoot news - let me recommend a book that has all the answers to UFO's, Big Foot, the Chupacabra, the lost continent of Atlantis, witches and Wigi boards...
