WHO: Bigfoot hoaxers
WHAT: The two Georgia men who stood before an embarrassingly large media pack last week and swore they had the body of Bigfoot on ice, which was later revealed to be a hairy gorilla suit filled with frozen meat, now say it was just a joke that got out of hand — and they assumed everybody knew it.
WHY THEY’RE DOING IT: The two men reportedly walked away with $50,000 from Searching for Bigfoot Inc. founder Tom Biscardi, who they now blame for blowing the whole thing out of proportion. Biscardi said he had been victimized.
WHY IT’S A BAD IDEA: At least one of the men, Matt Whitton, was a police officer who should have known better — or at least he was until he was fired.
WHERE TO VENT: We hear the Loch Ness Monster is taking calls.
