    How condescending of him.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Worthy of a parody, perhaps…?

      • http://www.bolingbrookbabbler.com William Brinkman

        Here you go. Thanks for the idea!

    Wait, is bigfoot being used as a euphemism here? Is this some new slang I wasn’t aware of?

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Not, it’s the supposed bigfoot. And a supposed investigator, supposedly acting as if he knows what he’s doing.

    Oh, Hayley! Hayley has good stuff. Unlike silly Matt. I’ve seen the idiotic BF shows, including the one he’s on.

    “I asplain’d that I said this is the sound that BF makes, so all you need to do is compare sounds you hear to this one.”

    Yeah. Ima no too shoore it works like that.

    A Twitter-feed comment from the show’s page:

    This show should be called Finding Morons! last night I had placed a bowl of cat food out side and this morning it was EMPTY! OMG! It HAD! to be Bigfoot! there is no other explanation?

    I was previously unaware of Alice Sheppard, so thanks for the links.

    Well, it’s entirely possible to reconstruct a larynx and pharynx from fossil remains (it’s been done for Neandertal — surprisingly high-pitched for such burly gents), or, better yet, dissect recent sasquatch remains, and simulate at least the pitch range and timbre of vocalization, and draw conclusions about their ability to articulate.

    So, all the credulists need to do is come up with a body, and we can match recorded vocalizations to anecdotal accounts. Contra Hayley, we don’t necessarily need video with sound.

    Oh, wait . . . .
