Bigfoot revealed

Bigfoot has been found, went the reports. And we have a body, a furry corpse frozen in a block of ice. Well, they thawedThe Associated Press: Researcher says bigfoot just a rubber gorilla suit.

Two researchers on a quest to prove the existence of Bigfoot say that the carcass encased in a block of ice — handed over to them for an undisclosed sum by two men who claimed to have found it — was slowly thawed out, and discovered to be a rubber gorilla outfit.

The revelation comes just days after a much ballyhooed news conference was held in California to proclaim that the remains of the creature found in the North Georgia mountains was the legendary man-ape.

Steve Kulls, executive director of squatchdetective.com and host of Squatchdetective Radio, says in a posting on a Web site run by Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi that as the “evidence” was thawed, the claim began to unravel as a giant hoax.

First, the hair sample was burned and “melted into a ball uncharacteristic of hair,” Kulls said in the posting.

The thawing process was sped up and the exposed head was found to be “unusually hollow in one small section.” An hour of thawing later and the feet were exposed — and they were found to be made of rubber.

    The real researchers were on to this almost from day one. They are getting very good at sniffing out hoaxes.

    But they’re such trustworthy fellows! I’m sure they just put a rubber suit out by mistake. Will the real Bigfoot be revealed?

    “Bigfoot Researcher” – now that, my friends, would be quite the vocation! Would be kinda like the line you would probably have to tread to be an American History or American Archeology teacher for the LDS church at BYU.

    Speaking of gorilla suits, one of my husband’s friends owns one. He used to wear it while riding his unicycle at college. It’s true! I have photos to prove it!

    I mean the real researches, like Dr. Meldrum, Jane Goodall, Mr. Chillicut the primate fingerprint expert, and so forth, not the man born a century too late to run a circus who periodically comes out with claims of north american ape remains that aren’t.
