I believe in Bigfoot about as much as a skeptic like me believes in UFOs or the Loch Ness Monster. I think at this point, if they were real we’d have found them by now.
That said, I try not to make fun of people who dedicate their lives to hunting UFOs and Bigfoot with the same amount of equipment that storm chasers use to hunt down a tornado. And I’m going to write this post with that in mind. Not so much a “point and laugh” but a “SHUT. UP!” point of view.
The Pittsburgh UFO Bigfoot Conference is meeting in Westmoreland County and that sent me on a Google hunt and I got lost down the Internet rabbit hole and barely made it out alive.
2. Sessions include: UFO Witness Theater, Bigfoot in PA, Roswell and MJ12, 2012, Mysterious Creatures of PA (Steely McBeam better make an appearance), and my personal favorite, UFOs and the Bible. Did I miss that part of the Bible where Noah was all, “Behold, bright spinny lights doth appear above the ark! Pleadeth now to the Lord thou are not sucked away to the planet Vortex.”
4. My personal favorite is The Squatch Detective!
That guy means BIZNASS!
He has a Hall of Shame on his site where he shames Bigfoot scams in great detail. It is fascinating. This is my favorite shame page because it has videos of Bigfoot and even this INCREDIBLE close up shot of the creature that the detective goes on to debunk.
Bigfoot sees you.
I hope when the Squatch Detective is in the woods investigating “wood stacks” (apparently, Bigfoot stacks wood. [shrug] Maybe he’s building a giant Jenga?) or an enormous footprint, that he goes all Horatio Caine up in there. “This is one foot [sunglasses] I wouldn’t want in my mouth.”
P.S. All of these guys would be taken much more seriously by the world if their websites didn’t make you want to punch Geocities in the face.
