Bigfoot Hoax to Trigger Lawsuit

A friend, in discussing the fact that the alleged Bigfoot turned out to be a frozen rubber suit, noted that "the bigfoot business seems like a good one to get into, so long as you never claim to discover anything substantive."

Alas, Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer claimed to have an actual Bigfoot, sold rights to the story (and I think the alleged carcass) for $50,000, and are going to get sued for it.

Good times.
