Your Moment of Duh in the Sunshine

Friends, we’re in the wrong business.

To the shock of perhaps no one except the residents of Atlantis and the Loch Ness monster, a California Bigfoot promoter said a supposed frozen carcass of the mythical beast allegedly found last month has turned out to be a fake. The promoter, Tom Biscardi, who held a news conference last week in Palo Alto to announce the finding, said the body he had trumpeted as definitive proof of Bigfoot was defrosted and was actually a rubber suit “masked with a bunch of body parts from different animals.” Mr. Biscardi, who said he had paid a “substantial amount of money” for the corpse, said he had been duped by a pair of Georgia men who said they had found the hairy corpse in northern Georgia. Mr. Biscardi, who makes his living on a Bigfoot Web site and merchandizing line, denied that he was complicit in the fraud and said he was planning to press charges. “It was just a total scam,” he said.

I can’t understand why these scam artists aren’t in the mortgage business here in Florida. Don’t we have plenty of hairy dead things and gullible morons? Maybe refrigeration is the hang-up. Ah, well. We’ll see.

    …that’s because they’re the ones running your city government.

    I resent that remark. We are working hard to clean up the city government and have it work for the people by the people. In fact, before my leave, I personally saw to it that we slice the budget by eliminating jobs held by HDT’s and GM’s. Don’t believe all the propaganda, trust me. ES
