Bigfoot, Shmigfoot

Loch Ness monster? Bigfoot? Yeti? Sasquatch?

Bah. Bunch of nonsense. I remember as a kid loving these stories, poring over grainy photos and being on the lookout for strange happenings at the cottage. The closest I got to finding Bigfoot up there was my father stamping through the bush covered in black flies.

A professor at an Idaho university is bringing about much head-shaking from his peers. Seems he seriously is hunting Bigfoot, and maintains a full-time obsession to go along with his full-time job. He's making them all look silly, and they won't eat lunch with them. Seriously, read down the article.

I am generally of a fairly open-minded nature. But you know, you're gonna have to show me a dead creature to make me believe in a live one. Shouldn't someone have stumbled across the remains by now? And how on earth do supposedly-intelligent people devote so many resources to chasing smoke? I'm not going to call you stupid for believing, granted, but could you keep it down a little? Your kids are groaning.

This prof says it all started when he found a footprint, that he decided had to have been left by a genuine Bigfoot. It was 15 inches long. Ferchristsakes, my kid wears a size 15 shoe, with no end in sight of where his own bigfootedness will stop. He turned 15 a few days ago. Maybe this guy is just making plaster casts of teen boys footprints. Toss on one of those puffy ski jackets, understand that they indeed make grunty howling noises when they're hungry, and you just have a kid lost on a grade 10 field trip.

My prediction? Nessie lives on T-shirts, and Bigfoot lives in this guy's imagination.

No one cares what you think.

Your opinion has no merit.
