Has Matt Moneymaker seen this? If he did I am sure he would point out the dent in the rear quarter panel over the tire is first hand evidence of a squatch encounter. I can close my eyes and almost hear him saying, "It's a well known fact that squatches are very secretive. While no one has proven that Bigfoot knows how to read, no one has definately shown that the don't. My professional opinion is that some well read squatches saw the SUV and didn't take kindly to the publicity. I am convinced."

Nitpick: The dent is in the door. Curiously square, too. Perhaps squatch opened the door to hard on getting out and hit it into something.

Probably bumped it on the trail camera he was disabling.

I'm still somewhat crestfallen that he never returned when I revived his thread.

Because Youtube® believes if you watch one video it means you'll dedicate your life to watching all 39 million other 'similar' videos, this guy keeps popping up in my list. Not four hours ago he came out with an 11 part (so far) series of videos of a "Bigfoot Interaction Retreat" held at his house/property in WA this last weekend.

If you thought his other videos were creepy (amongst other things), gotta watch Part 2 of this to get a real solid whiff again. If that's not a child molester then I don't know what one is. Part 3 isn't much better, but it's to show both those parts total less than 2 minutes and they're the only footage of anyone being outdoors looking like they're "interacting with Bigfoot" at the Bigfoot Interaction Retreat. There's no pictures, no video, no sounds, no turds, no campsites, nothing actually Bigfoot. All 11 parts total 256 minutes with 254 minutes of it the group sittin' around this guy's house talking and talking and talking and then finally talking about their supposed encounters at the Xanue Night Sit™ there on the property the night before.

So anyway she got a tingle in her spine and apparently that meant the beasts were nearby. Because Xanue (Bigfoot) = healers and she had had adrenal issues before.

Finally, ever heard of Gifting Bowls™? You have now. And this douche sure loves to point. I'd have totally missed these had he not pointed his finger at them.

About a 2.5 on the Bristol Scale, I'd guess.

I've been given to understand there's a photographic version of the scale. But I am NOT going to look for it.

" Genuine Bigfoot Artifacts"?????? LOL, LL, LOL.
People actually buy into this?

When I read this, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. What exactly is a Bigfoot Research and Tech Vehicle? Because if it's the vehicle pictured above, it look's like they just slapped some stickers on their car door.

One wonders why the World's only Bigfoot Research and Tech Vehicle is sitting on display instead of out research-and-tech-ing.

Don't you see? The entire museum concept is a trap to lure bigfoots. Then *bam* the R&T vehicle is on the scene researching and tech-ing the heck out of those foots!

Everyone knows foots are highly protective of their poops and will stop at nothing to retrieve it and dispose of it properly.

Its brilliant, really.

Ah...clever indeed. These 'footers are obviously much more cunning than I've been giving them credit for.

I’ve heard rumors they’re developing speech-like communication skills...

...which would make them cunning linguists!
