Just another big foot lie

August 18, 2008

I am soooo disappointed. I thought Bigfoot was really going to be uncovered this time, but it turns out to be just a Web-site promotion scam:

Emblazoned with the URL bigfoottracker.com, a site devoted to their own Bigfoot tracking enterprise, (a site, incidentally, that declares that Bigfoot’s DNA has been taken away for ‘analization’), the baseball caps worn by Matthew Whitton (aka Gary Parker) and Rick Dyer said so very much.

[. . .]

These are businessmen who put most Web 1.0 enterprises to shame. Most of Web 2.0 too. They have a geneticist’s rigorous grasp of detail. And they have a clearly articulated business plan.

Messrs Whitton and Dyer are afraid of nothing, certainly not of the world’s press. After all, they have faced and sniffed the body of Bigfoot. They have dragged his five hundred pounds back to their pickup truck. They have resisted the urge of calling the police, or Animal Rescue. These are men smart and courageous enough to have run Webvan.

But a memo to Chris Matyszczyk: If you’re going to make fun of people for writing “analization,” you should probably be careful not to write about how “unphased” they were by their MSNBC interview.

  1. Harl Delos Says:

    In Ohio, school employees who don’t have teaching certificates are referred to as “uncertificated”.

    Not “uncertified”, “uncertificated”.

    No wonder our schools are doing such a poor job.

  2. i’m still trying to figure out if “Sasquatch” is Bigfoot’s name, or if that’s the name of his species
