Ultimate Feral Beast: Bigfoot

It must be the traditional August silly season. Or there's a couple of wars on and a restive and gullible public to distract Claims by Georgia hunters that they bagged Bigfoot in the woods and, while they hauled its body away, three other furry crypto-hominds looked on in silence are gaining attention in the media and igniting cyberspace. Matthew Whitton, Rick Dyer and the Bigfoot huckster Tom Biscardi showed a photo which
looks like a costume with some fake guts thrown on top for effect. Even if [the bigfoot carcass] had have been eviscerated by a predator or a scavenger, [the entrails] wouldn't just be sitting up on top like that

The trio of bigfoot enthusiasts hosted a press conference in Palo Alto which left scientific experts shaking their heads in dismay. Most are extremely cynical after the two DNA samples taken from the thawed carcass showed results that were 95 per cent human in one case, and the other-pure possum. A University of Minnesota professor, Curt Nelson, anaysed the samples. At 7 feet 7 inches and 500 pounds, the erstwhile ape-man is barely taller than some pro basketball players, though quite a bit heavier.

Hmmmm. The media in Israel totally skipped this story. I guess we can rest assured that Bigfoot isn't Jewish.
