    Well, it turns out the guy who started the Bigfoot legend was indeed a consummate hoaxster...his family admits it was all a fake after his death.

    From the article:
    I guess what else do you say when your life's research project has just been busted as a hoax.

    I am kinda sad that Bigfoot turned out to be a hoax. I mean, I've never contemplated such a creature might truly exist since I was 14, and the movie Harry and the Hendersons kinda dispelled any lingering suspicions I might have had. But oh well...another piece of childhood nostalgia, decimated by the passage of time.

    Christ, next thing you'll be telling us is that Santa is a hoax! :eek: :haha:

    Is that the same guy who captured that famous footage (the first I remember) of "bigfoot" walking across a clearing into the woods? If I remember correctly, the supposed creature is walking sort of perpendicular to the camera (at about 50-75 yards away), turns its head momentarily toward the camera and then disappears into the woods. Is that the one?

    Although I find these "myths" of some interest, as I enjoy stories of the Loch Ness monster and such, and I'd be a liar if I said that part of me didn't truly hope that some indesputable evidence would be someday found, but the mere fact that no anthroplogic remains, bones, have ever been discovered makes we wonder why people perpetuate these myths with a life-time career of hoaxing.

    I imagine Joseph Campell would have had some interesting thoughts on this.

    Of course all of this stuff is nonsense put out by the anti-bigfoot conspiracy. In reality bigfoot lives.

    Well, we can always break out the Oujia Board and find out.

    While the name 'bigfoot' was indeed coined in 1958, the stories of such creatures predate that hoax by nearly 150 years.

    I dunno about a hoax, after seeing Shaq's size 22 feet.

    And the effort to get us to believe Bigfoot was a hoax probably is part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to enslave us. Bigfoot is free and not a captive of the corporate governing system the right-wingers want everybody to be subservient to (when they are not bowing down to the nutty right-wing clerics -- our domestic Taliban.) Those of us still prepared to resist, however, know that Bigfoot lives.

    Hmmm. Have to get some tee shirts made. How abo0ut this, in big letters, multi-colored, etc.

    CONSERVATIVES LIE
    BIGFOOT LIVES AND WILL MAKE YOU FREE

    What's funny is that I recently argued with a coworker who insists Bigfoot is real. My neighbor insists she is a witch and that vampires are real. (She watches Buffy...for real!)
