Any minute now in Palo Alto, I’m told.
Prior to the press conference, Whitton and Dyer released a few facts about the Bigfoot remains. The animal has reddish-brown hair, gray eyes, is over seven and a half feet tall and weighs over 500 pounds. His footprint was said to be over 2 feet in length and his hands are almost 12 inches long from his palm to the tip of his middle finger. He’s also a male.
Good to know; I’d hate to think what a female sasquatch’s naughty bits look like.
(Original press release here).
This just in: twitter folks say they’re watching the news conference live on CNN. I cannot bring myself to watch, it would bring too much shame on my profession.
How did I miss such a hot story?
UPDATE: Surprise, surprise: Fox News says little is revealed at news conference. Of course if there was a way to blame the limp-wristed liberals who hate America, then they’d have had a real story.
UPDATE II: TechCruch covered the news conference and wrote it up with mock/ironic credulity.
You know ol’ Sasquatch is out there, lurking, waiting, watching, evading, procreating!
Tom, if you over to their, uh, web site you can enjoy some really cool “sasquatch reggae” music. Or something.
Sasquatch reggae … I’m going to forgive you for putting that imagery into my head but it might take a few hours.
Watching the responses on Twitter was a hoot… one guy said “I’m from North Georgia and wanted to make sure they didn’t pick up my brother-in-law.”
Maybe those dudes really got hold of another Hogzilla like creature’s skeletal remains?
The real bigfoot reserchers have identified this as a hoax perpetrated by a well known hoaxer
I hope nobody thinks I gave a millisecond of thought to the possibility that this was anything but a con job.
Uh, thanks for that clarification, Tom!
