The Big Bigfoot Let-Down

So, remember those guys who were going to reveal their earth-shattering Bigfoot discovery at a huge press conference? Well, the huge press conference happened yesterday and the intrepid hunters revealed exactly diddly-squat. Not bothering to display the alleged Bigfoot corpse they say they've kept in a freezer since finding it in Georgia over a month ago, a couple of yokels still received several hundred journalists at a press conference in Palo Alto, CA, yesterday. The liars, a cop on medical leave from the Clayton County Poilce Department and a former corrections officer, instead plugged their website and offered Sasquatch-hunting weekends in Georgia for $499. Oh, but they did produce one bit of evidence.

"It was an e-mail from a University of Minnesota entomologist, but all it said was that of the three DNA samples sent to the scientist, one was human, one was likely a possum and the third could not be tested because of technical problems.

At least one other Bigfoot researcher, Idaho State University anthropologist Jeffrey Meldrum, called the trio's claims 'not compelling in the least.' He told the Scientific American that photographs posted on the Web site 'just looks like a costume with some fake guts thrown on top for effect.'" [AP]

Damn it, we want real monsters and we want them now!
