Bigfoot Turns Out To Be Nerdy Kid,16, In Gorilla Suit

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A Connecticut woman`s close encounter with the mythical beast, Sasquatch or Big Foot, turned out to be nothing more than a boy in a costume. Fairfield police said a woman driving last Tuesday night called police to report that she `almost hit Sasquatch,` which was standing in the middle of the road.

Police said they searched and found a 16-year-old boy dressed in a gorilla-like costume." Associated Press (AP)

Bigfoot is a mythological (read:fake as hell) beast who lives in the fevered imaginations of idiots, drunks, and pranksters.

Many Sasquatch sightings are the results of city slickers who go hiking, and see a bear and think it`s a Bigfoot. If you go into the woods you are as likely to see Oprah Winfrey munching of blackberries as you are to run across a Bigfoot.

This AP article shows how rumors of Bigfoot sightings get started. A woman sees a 16-year-old kid and she describes him to the cops as a "hairy beast 8 feet tall with legs like tree trunks."

If the cops hadn`t found the 16-year-old prankster, this foolish (possibly drunk) woman would be doing the paranormal circuit giving lectures about her epic confrontation with Bigfoot.
