The Bigfoot Hoaxers are Back! (An Illustrated Post)

First, the bad news: those idiot con artists who tried to peddle a Halloween costume off as the real body of Bigfoot are back.

Now, the good news: I drew a comic about it instead of writing a blog entry. My conjoined twin Jeffrey Rowland of Overcompensating made a general request for guest-drawn comics this week, and I was inspired. He took my scribbles and turned them into a totally rad, colored comic!

Go read it NOW! And witness my expert skillz at the arts.

  1. I went and looked at the listing. It says that the proceeds will partially go to cover legal expenses as they are being sued for selling a fake. Which makes me wonder how they got the original back.

    Maybe when the auction ends they’ll get an email from the buyer stating that he has a check for $300,000 and would like Dyer & Whitton to cash it and then send the remaining $99K+ to somebody else. At least, that’s what I hope happens.

  2. I noticed the tear tatoo on the possum, which could indicate that it may have had some sort of gang affiliation prior to its(not sure if it’s male or female, though the bigfoot stunt does have a fratboy feel to it so we can assume it may be male) involvement with the hoax.

    Ignorance is no excuse the possum had to have some idea what it was getting involved with and must also be held accountable. And probably deserves part of the profits from the sale of the suit.

    In closing I’m not crazy so stop looking at me like that now I must go my planet needs me.

    P.S. I’ll bet the discover intitute could find a use for bigfoot.
