    Unsurprising.

    Bigfoot is not ‘missing’ – he’s been living in my garage (behind the freezer) for years …..

    I am shocked, just shocked, I tell you. Who could possibly have predicted it?

    I think it’s time to start a conspiracy theory to the effect that Bigfoot (Bigfeet? Bigfoots? Sasquatchen?) are actually intelligent hominids that have coexisted with us for thousands of years. The conspiracy part comes in because the largest population of these gentle, intelligent, virtuous, eco-friendly creatures is to be found in the ANWR, right where the oil companies want to drill. That explains why there have been so many ‘discoveries’ quickly followed by retractions: any time someone has convincing proof of the existence of these critters, they receive a visit from shadowy men in black who “persuade” them to withdraw their claim.

    Far-fetched? Implausible? Completely bogus? You may think so, but look for my forthcoming book “The Sasquatch Conspiracy” on the New York Times bestseller list. Anyone pre-ordering a copy gets a cuddly sasquatch doll … unless the Bavarian Illuminati silence me first. The shaggy, rank-smelling truth is out there.

    People who deny the existence of Bigfoot usually don’t understand that there are sightings everyday (that usually get ignored or mocked), and that the fact that one hasn’t been captured and studied fits perfectly with all known information about the creature– it runs from humans in every known encounter, so perhaps it has evolved to avoid humans (and knowing humans I can see why).

    You are correct that this latest hoax doesn’t prove that bigfoot doesn’t exist, but proving a negative is virtually impossible. Skeptics such as myself don’t (currently) believe that bigfoot is real simply because there is no objective evidence to support the existence of such a creature.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Finding an as-yet undocumented hominid living in North America would be extraordinary to say the least.

    well no shit?

  6. Absent says:

    Big foot has to exist, fat American dollars depend upon it.

  7. GuidoDavid says:

    When will stop people paying attention to this?

    Some wacko yells ‘BIGFOOT’ and has the media attention for a while. I guess it is the summer and lack of news… (not really, we are living a lot of unrest and the Olympics)

    Best line of the article:

    Asked for comment on Officer Whitton, Clayton County, Ga., Chief of Police Jeffrey Turner, corrected FoxNews.com. “You mean ex-officer Whitton.”

    Even if they did get $50,000 from the other guy, and even if Whitton got most or all of that, he’d have to be an utter gibbering fool to give up a cop’s salary, benefits and retirement for 50 gees. Looks like there’s a primitive being wandering around the Deep South after all…

  9. Jeff says:

    Bigfoot is REAL! I have proof. Real, scientific proof. Bigfoot is currently the mayor of Detroit. Yo, thug life rules! Dawgs.

    I’m a bit giddy about Biscardi, of all people, getting ripped off.

    It’s one of those rare times where you think of the victim and just get all teary-eyed with happiness. I’m a bad person, but a happy one.

  11. BBNinja says:

    Well, I’m sure that http://www.thehorrordome.com hasn’t minded the publicity. And its funny to see a con artist get conned too :P

  12. Ben says:

    I can’t believe Cryptomundo.com crashed for NOTHING!

  13. geo the moose says:

    did anyone else see bbc world on pbs sunday and see the segment where the scientists are analyzing the yeti hair? I guess it isn’t just fox news that gets caught up in all the hoopla.

  14. groovehouse says:

    It feels like 1967 all over again when the Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot footage was released!!

  15. BaxterJ says:

    Wow, and they sounded so genuine at their press conference last week: http://www.entertonement.com/collections/2149/Bigfoot

    First link is almost a month old, this guy has been trying to pull this off for a while apparently.

  17. ZombieBabyDiego says:

    I have honestly never understood the appeal of the Bigfoot legend.
    a big hairy bearcatape running around in a forest?
    that’s it?

  18. ill lich says:

    Well, I guess this PROVES Bigfoot does not exist, huh?

    Just like this magic rock I have here protects me from Tiger attacks (100% success rate so far).

    People who deny the existence of Bigfoot usually don’t understand that there are sightings everyday (that usually get ignored or mocked), and that the fact that one hasn’t been captured and studied fits perfectly with all known information about the creature– it runs from humans in every known encounter, so perhaps it has evolved to avoid humans (and knowing humans I can see why).

    I’ve never seen one, but I won’t deny their existence simply because one hasn’t been captured yet.

    I’m just happy to hear is wasn’t a one-legged Mormon missionary.

  20. Jake0748 says:

    Most people reading here are smart enough to understand that lack of evidence doesn’t prove or disprove anything.

    I think what a lot of folks are pointing out is that whenever someone shows up with supposed proof of B.F.’s existence, it always turns out to be a hoax. And its getting boring.

  21. JimmyJoeJohn says:

    Sounds like three guys each have a “big foot” in their mouths after making such claims. Here come the lawsuit(s)! LOL

    Found this bigfoot video on the web…a must see. It’ll cheer up everyone who wanted this hoax to be true.

    Be prepared to laugh your arse off!

    Not surprising, yet still depressing.

    Jake0748 – By B.F. do you, perhaps, mean B.S.?

  24. brundlefly76 says:

    Last night I was listening to an Art Bell rerun (maybe 2001?) where he was talking to this guy ‘Bugs’, whom purportedly had killed and buried two bigfoot creatures.

    However, neither himself nor Bell would disclose his real name or the burial location, as he was afraid that the two were so humanoid that he would actually be charged with murder. I think he might have even said they may have just been some mentally retarded people – ?

    At least, that was my takeaway from the part of the broadcast I heard.

    It was classic Art Bell stuff. Maybe it was Noory – I dunno, I’m no expert on that show.

    I want to unsubscribe. This site was not what I thought it was. I’m sure great for some people but not interesting to me. Thanks any way.

    Dude, who logs in to a web site to say they aren’t going to visit that web site anymore?

  28. aldasin says:

    Gee guys, you might want to consider taking the high road sometime and ignoring obvious frauds.

    Even here you’re printing Biscardi’s story as if he has a shred of credibility; like he’s some kind of victim here.

    I’m sure these dirtbags appreciate your driving up their site traffic and t-shirt sales, though.
    How about some credibility when it comes to reporting science and tech issues, as opposed to just regurgitating what the mainstream media pukes out on a daily basis?

  29. darue says:

    why are you linking to fox news? stop it.

  30. Jake0748 says:

    Banjology @33 – Well I meant BigFoot, but B.S. just about covers it too. ;)

  31. pjcamp says:

    Fox News?? How do you know the hoax report isn’t a hoax?

  32. JG says:

    Never, ever believe anything you hear on FOX NEWS.
    Bigfoot (or Sasquatch ) is doing fine.
    He’s just sequestered (sasquastered?)in a hotel room somewhere waiting to announce his third party presidential bid.
    Possible running mates:
    -Harry Connick jr
    -Prince Harry
    -Deborah Harry
    -Harry Reid
    -Dirty Harry
    -Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth

  33. Gary61 says:

    JG …. you forgot Harry Reems !

  34. trieste says:

    If this gets so much attention I can only imagine what will happen when I release news that they have found Jesus’s iPod (it’s got music on it from bands not even born yet!)

    It’ll be in the papers for days as people wonder ‘Is it real or fake?’, ‘We’d better test it!’

  35. Master Mahan says:

    So this was nothing but con men selling blatant forgeries to other con men, and the media hyped it up rather than doing any investigation or displaying the slightest bit of skepticism?

    This sounds very familiar somehow…

  36. Mathleticism says:

    I feel sorry for the guy they killed and froze inside the suit.

  38. Michael A. Banks says:

    They’re probably hoping an agent will contact them for the book and film rights to “The Bigfoot Hoax: The Greatest Sham of the 21st Century.” That sort of thing is why they perptrated the original hoax.

    Why can’t thsse people come up with something that’s at least entertaining and lasts more than a month?

  39. chromal says:

    Bigfoot is synonymous with hoax. Always has been, always will be. If there were such creatures roaming North America, they’d’ve been captured and studied long ago. This is about as interesting as the Loch Ness monster, which is to say, not very.

  40. Jake0748 says:

    Ditto # 21 & 22. The hoax community needs to come up with some new, interesting stuff. Or maybe go get jobs.
