Please and thank you.
I don't know, drawing a Bigfoot looting something, could be construed as having another message, and I don't want to deal with it.

Although as an artist I should push the limits...

Yeah, you might get hammered on that. I was thinking Lootie the Footie, but then remembered the Lootie meme. Maybe a MAGA cap as LTC8K6 suggested might work, but you never know 'round this neck o' the woods.

Think about a Skunk Ape and a can of beans and a screwdriver.

Good to know that NathanFooter is still alive. I was worried about that kid. He went off on a bigfoot excursion and dropped off the scene.

It's like claiming a guy to be the "best young chef" despite him never having made a single meal in his life.

Cliff, sit down, you're drunk!

Best old footer would have to go to Bob Gimlin.

50 years later and he's still lying about it.

Still earning money and adulation at bigfoot conferences.

Still lying to the very people he helped create.

That's a long-term grift right there.

It's hard to blame him, tbh. If people are still willing to turn up in their droves to hear one of several new detailed versions of his timeless classic, then that's on them. The Gimlinator is just picking up cheques.

He's the Status Quo of Bigfoot tours, playing around the country, non-stop, and getting paid for that one well-known hit.

The same could be said for evangelists, faith healers and homeopaths and vegans.

Spreading disinformation is just that.

Skunk Lootie. He's got your can of beans and your favorite screwdriver and he smells like hell. Aw hell, you don't even want those things back because they'll smell like hell.

Does anyone have the link to the Meldrum gait vid where the mime does the Pattywalk and DonJeffy denies it?

It would help win a bar bet

I can't remember Meldrum denying it, if we're talking about the same video. IIRC, Meldrum admits that he was surprised how easy "aspects" of the walk were to replicate, and by "aspects", it can be concluded that he actually means "the whole 9 yards."

I can't for the life of me remember what the video is called, tbh. It was on some **** little Discovery show, though.

I cant find the original, but it is Best Evidence, and he is at the Stanford gait lab or something like that.

Here is the Thinker Thunker Recap, where he tries to debunk the lab's work.
