Another Bigfoot story bites the dust

Bigfoot ... or hoax?

I’m sure, by now, you’ve heard about the latest Bigfoot story. I mean, if you haven’t, where have you been?

Seems two fellows from California claimed they found the body of a deceased Bigfoot in the woods in north Georgia. They took the body and stuffed it into a cooler, or a freezer, or a big white metal box … anyway, took pictures and then wouldn’t let anyone see the body after making their discovery public.

Of course, the picture resembles a big gorilla costume stuffed into a cooler. It’s understandable why city folk out there who don’t know any better would try and cast doubt on the story. But this got ugly.

Among the stories to come out in the past several days following the revelation of the Bigfoot discovery were: “Bigfoot in the freezer is my pet Chuck,” “Bigfoot named president of Georgia, makes peace with Russia,” “Bigfoot sighting at Hank Aaron Stadium” and, the best one, “McCain selects Bigfoot as running mate in surprise move.”

It’s just like the mainstream media to botch such an important story. Despite the men’s statements that they would allow only their handpicked scientists and a Fox News reporter to view the body, Fox News dismissed the claim just like everyone else. What happened to “We report. You decide?”

Well, turns out it WAS all a hoax. A DNA analysis found samples supposedly taken from the corpse to be human and … get this, … opossum.

The sad part is yahoos like these two guys ruin it for people, like me, who know for certain bigfoot really does exist.

Oh well. Anybody heard anything lately about the chupacabra?
