Even breakingier news on the Bigfoot front

Among other reputable news sources, Fox News and local station KTVU report that a crack team of Bigfoot researchers, including Tom “Ain’t Never Seen a Bear Skeleton” Biscardi, claims to have recovered a genuine Bigfoot carcass. And in the interest of both setting the scientific record straight and shutting the yapps of know-it-all bloggers, they’ll be hosting a press conference this Friday in Palo Alto. Here’s details for anyone in the area, courtesy of SearchingForBigfoot.com:

Date: Friday, August 15, 2008
Time: From 12Noon-1:00pm
Place: Cabana Hotel-Palo Alto, 4290 El Camino Real
Palo Alto, California 94306
(A Crown Plaza Resort)

Purporting to present DNA and photographic evidence, this press conference will summarize the Bigfoot learnings of body-discoverer Matthew Whittington (for unreported reasons also known as Gary Parker), his bigfoottracker.com co-founder and Georgia resident Rick Dyer, and aforementioned ursine mortality skeptic Tom Biscardi. What can we expect? I have to tell you, I’m more anxious to find out than I am to watch Olympic Women’s Beach Volleyball. Stay tuned for details as they emerge.

  1. A couple of things I’m wondering about from reading their web press briefing.

    First, they saw a group of these, apparently alive, when they found the body now in the freezer. Did these guys fortuitously interrupt a “Bigfoot” burial ceremony? Or was this a formerly alive Bigfoot that they plugged between the eyes? Something seems kind of wrong about that to me.

    Second, “DNA evidence … to be provided.” Excuse me, “DNA evidence?” Eric S. and the readers of this blog may not know it, but I am a trained Scientist, and work with DNA every day. I’m curious as to what kind of DNA evidence Mr. Whitton and Mr. Dyer are generating in their garage forensics lab, after finding Bigfoot just last weekend. A few to many times watching X-Files, I think.

    Third, searchingforbigfoot.com says the press conference on Friday “will only be open to credentialed members of the press.” Does this include bloggers?

  2. Well, according to several national news outlets, Mr. Whitton and Mr. Dyer’s press conference wasn’t particularly illuminating. The best tidbit I was able to get out of it was the the DNA analysis indicated a curious mix of human and possum DNA.

    Bigfoot is a marsupial?

  4. […] prone to alarmism, but this reeks of cover up. If the next thing you hear about this is reported by Tom Biscardi, I suggest you make sure all the supplies in your End of the World shelter are fresh. Possibly […]
