Finally – Conclusive Evidence Of Bigfoot

I knew being a skeptic would pay off one day. The truth has finally been revealed. This is with big thanks to Alom Shaha:

A man who ordered a special size 14.5 slipper to fit his oversized foot was sent a size 1,450 after the Chinese manufacturers failed to spot a decimal point in his order.

Update? Yeah, I know, I know – it’s most likely as real as a smelly Bigfoot costume filled with innards and put on eBay as ‘Bigfoot bits’ – but I hope it gave you a smile. Bigfoot always has always eluded us – and since the 20th October is the anniversary of the famous Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot film, it does seem to suit the day. Er, pun not intended.

In other news, grades have been submitted, I’m on the verge of recovering from this cold (which means I’ve gone from exhausted and confused to just plain depressed and sorry for myself and big slippers are the only thing keeping me happy) and I’m attending the Q.I show featuring Stephen Fry over the weekend.

So, maybe the world isn’t so bad. I promise to write more sensible things (and less filler-video and weird pictures of things that are keeping me from drowning in my own phlegm) when I’m better.

    I used to have slippers just like that, rather appropriately my feet for too big for them

      What the hell was I doing when I was supposed to be proofreading my post? I meant “My feet got far too big”

    “drowning in my own phlegm” would be a great name for a band.

      I’d hate to hear the lead singer. At the moment I sound like Kermit the frog at the bottom of a well. :/

        ‘Drowning in my own phlegm’ is a very popular singing technique in metal, maybe you’re missing your calling

        • Kylie Sturgess

          Oh dear holy hades, I really, really hope not… :p

          • Aliasalpha

            Oh go on, you could be a pioneer in Rational Metal!

      I go for ‘Did the story make me smile regardless? And did I ever really believe in bigfoot?’ :)
