In a surprising, seemingly mass induced phenomena, not unlike bigfoot, a number of fourth level “Bigfoot Researchers” announced their retirement over a series of blog and message board posts today. What started as a trickle built to a torrent by the end of the day as scores of hardcore bigfooters followed suit. The reasons for retirement seem to be a uniform sentiment that they need to spend time and focus on the important things of life. The following excerpt is typical of what many wrote.
“I am announcing my retirement today. It seems fitting to do so days before Valentines Day. From this day forward I am retiring from my family so that I can spend more time being a bigfoot researcher. Hey, I have an ego to feed and some bigfoot money to make, my wife, sons and daughters were getting in the way. Had to get my priorities straight, dude.”
