Bigfoot Almost as Fake as John Edwards

First the MSM covered the Bigfoot find in Georgia more than they did John Edwards in 2007, and now they’re amazed that it’s a fake:

ATLANTA – Turns out Bigfoot was just a rubber suit. Two researchers on a quest to prove the existence of Bigfoot say that the carcass encased in a block of ice — handed over to them for an undisclosed sum by two men who claimed to have found it — was slowly thawed out, and discovered to be a rubber gorilla outfit.

The revelation comes just days after a much ballyhooed news conference held in California that proclaimed the remains of the creature, found in the North Georgia mountains, were the legendary man-ape.

Steve Kulls, executive director of and host of Squatchdetective Radio, says in a posting on a Web site run by Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi that as the “evidence” was thawed, the claim began to unravel as a giant hoax.

I don’t know what’s funnier. The fact that the Bigfoot “expert” paid for the suit or this:

ATLANTA (MyFOX Atlanta) — A Clayton County police officer has lost his job over the “Bigfoot” hoax.
Police chief Jeff Turner said he took action against Matt Whitton after he learned the story was made-up.

Whitton was one of two men to claim they had dragged Bigfoot’s body out of the north Georgia mountains and had it in a freezer.
