It looks as if Courtney may have pegged the foot doc.  Seems any John with the currency (in this case media exposure) is good enough to jump in his bed.

We were going to run an April fool story on a “bigfoot researcher”  filing suit against another for copyright infringement on a picture they did not own and slander, but that actually happened about a year ago.  We did not forget and hope others will not forget this heinous act.

Because of a certain person who has a penchant  to comment upon anything that remotely shows critical thinking that is perceived as criticism of him and his event, and his attempts to take our comment section into the gutter with him, we will probably be putting him on some sort of moderation if we can figure out a way without labeling it spam.

John Keel’s Operation Trojan Horse.  If you have seen the elephant and heard the owls you will get it, or get it eventually once you read the book.  Focus on Sir Victor.

Subtitle this the dangers of thinking slightly out of the box and at the same time copying an idea from a TV show.

From the carpetbaggers  that brought bigfootery to the conference scene by telling attendees that a big name was going to attend, and withholding that information and pushing ticket sales days after they knew better, we now  have the experience.  Think of it as a guided haunted trail attraction where the one and only ghoul is bigfoot, well, hoaxed bigfoot.   Taking a page from the bounty, evidence (in this case hoaxed evidence) will be collected and the best capture of the hoax wins.  We anticipate hoaxed prints and somebody dashing around the woods in a gorilla suit.  Here’s an idea for them, get a gorilla mask and put some glow sticks in it, instant eye shine hoax.  Then cue the gorilla suit stage right.

Hoax’y conference hosting a hoax’y haunted trail  snipe walk, bigfootery gold.   But it is free, and worth every penny.  Yuck it up dudes.


The above observation based upon Dyer’s deal.  It is in conflict to that RV, playboy/penthouse chicks video, but then again that one was ready to lay some pipe.

Nope, we are not talking about the whole tree marker stuff.

Damn you Moneymaker.

It seems that every time we get some distance from OOPS, now known within the BFE staff as the Apple Caper, you suck us right back in.  We have had some sharp words to say about Finding Bigfoot, aka Finding Bigpuffery, especially in the first season.  What we have come to appreciate about the show is the wise casting and the reach of the show in terms of locales.  Admittedly most of us at the BFE are not inclined toward travel to places where the political, security and basic infrastructure isues are a threat to our health and well being.  Trips to the UK or an English-speaking Central American country are the limits of our toleration for those types of risks.  Some would question what a few of us jump into in terms of rivers and creeks, but at least that risk is largely within our control as opposed to ending up in regions where there are State Department advisories.  Props for traveling into those places.

But we digress.  We are damning Matt because of his recent statements about bigfoot possessing the ability of bioluminescence, essentially generate light through their eyes.   Matt comes out every once in awhile with a statement that most of bigfootery jumps on.  The self anointed “experts” will pull up their soapbox and start to lecture the “community” on how the idea  outrageous .  They will point out facts based in biology, what few animals posses such a characteristic, how it is not been discovered in any pongids (they like to use those scientific terms to seem expert like) and generally how uninformed such an outlandish statement is and how it reflects badly upon these “experts” and the “community”.  Are we damning him for the same reason as the “experts”?  Hell no.

His comment pissed at least two of us off as it dragged us back to the time of the Apple Caper and our personal experiences, some not so pleasant, with the bigfoot traffic lights.  Moneymaker’s comment  demonstrates that he has been down it, he has mixed it up with these things.  It also points out that some of these third and fourth level bigfoot researchers  who are laughing at the comment and providing “expert” evidence on how this cannot be true have not truly mixed it up with these things.  They would sing a different tune or just stay quiet if they had.  Once you experience the bigfoot traffic light, by that time you have also experienced a few other bigfoot related things, you realize you are dealing with something weird.  And we have been traffic lighted at night with only ambient natural light , sorry to bust the expert bubble that it must be reflection from a human light source.  Pretty certain this was not the case.

So damn you Moneymaker for taking us back to the Apple Caper.  Here’s our interpretation of the bigfoot traffic light :
Green – they are cool, curious, perhaps taken by surprise, no threats or annoyances detected.  They often think they have not been detected at this point.  Green is really hard to see, faint.  They do blink at this point.
Yellow – the surprise has passed, they are processing the situation and sensing some things they are not comfortable with, someone has violated some space parameter, they might not like the tactical situation in terms of egress, someone has noticed them and giving them attention or directing others to their location.  Blinking slows.
Red – they are pissed at the hairless piss ants.  Certain warnings that usually work to back off the piss ants have not worked, the piss ants are in the way of them getting to food, shelter or  others, the hairless piss ants are answering and escalating the behaviors that generally send the piss ants a runnin.  Blinking is almost gone.

Hey BF Field Reporter.  What you said about Doc M., bigfootery gold.  His making three appearances in the spring up in the eastern Midwest is saturation.   One has to wonder about his students and wife.  But to each his own, make that bigfootery dollars while it is hot in pop culture.  We get what you were saying and you did nail it.   Messin with an icon, let alone messin with sasquatch,  is risky business and we are sure there will be a blow back.  Watch what happens in this blow back as it will be text book bigfootery.  There will be a piling on, opportunism, people will be offended,  there will be some flip flopping of “friends”,  praise for the icon, attacks on the messenger instead of the message and  few will address the core issue of his bigwhoreish behavior.

Bigwhoreishness  comes in many forms in bigfootery.  Whoring out pictures you do not own, carpet bagging, various hypocrisies, it is easy to find the whores.  Congrats to the Field Reporter for stripping away the niceities and calling it what it is.

We’ve had an article or two about the reporter and had bestowed a not so nice nickname that we felt fit.  We are now giving her a new moniker, Courtney.  Like her name sake we find her unpredictable, possibly inebriated, unfiltered opinions to be a bit…….. hot.  How about that?

We are unsure if the icon worshipers know this about the Doc.  In this essay he attempts to use some scientific data (genetics), cultural and political themes  to validate a  Book of Mormon’s pronouncement on how America was peopled.  It is an interesting read eventually spinning into the absence of evidence does not mean the absence of fact and conclusions.  Sounds like an early exercise in one of the concepts employed in bigfootery.

No, not a Bigfootery Enquirer bounty, the TV show.   We especially appreciate the absolute intellectual poverty of those who review the show without watching it.  There is certainly a great deal of biggrumpery over the series, even at this early juncture.  One gem we collected when we watched it off the dvr was Disotell mentioning the sweet spot for dna collection of stools is the leading tip as it has the cells of the pooper.  Now, the self proclaimed expert third and fourth level bigfooters will spin saying Oh, LOL !!!, I already knew that.  But we doubt it.  So there are gems the reviewers and biggrumpers who bitch but do not watch are missing.

Is the series original?  Other than the topic,  it seems they have blended some Survivor with some Amazing Race and then threw in a cooking show elimination process.  They say reality or semi-reality shows are made or broken with the cast, so we are thinking 50/50.  The ratings have not made the Finding Bigfoot folks nervous at this point, we are sure.

Carry on experts, review without seeing something, claim to be a scientist with a high school education, attempt to act like an old hand if you came into this before the age of Facebook or Youtube.
