That's hilarious, and exactly what I was thinking!

So here are some ideas. One is a model in a t-shirt with a bigfoot head and the caption "I Believe".

Another with a giant bigfoot poster. No caption necessary. Just the model being smaller than bigfoot. Another saying "Got Wood?" and a bigfoot knocking on a tree with a stick. Model is just posing in that one.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Shoestring budget unless you guys throw some research money in the pot. This is cutting edge science, a faithful re-creation of Patterson's Asia expedition. Memorialized in a calendar.

The expedition theme is "Little feet for bigfoot"

good.

Twelve months, twelve ideas. I suppose I need Roger Patterson with a model. Not sure which Patterson frame is the one to use.

But it is important because this really is commemorative of Roger. It was the culmination of his bigfoot hunting career, and nobody to date has picked up where he left off.

At the institute we have developed information from undisclosed sources, but that which converge on the same location Roger pointed to as his life came to a tragically short end from Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Area Z.

We are also running out of time.

For how much longer will we be able to go to Thailand and ask about the short guy in the cowboy hat that was looking for bigfoot? I'm sure there are a few old timers that remember him, but we need to move on this quickly.

SARATOGA - Fourteen-year-old Addalynn Kawleski has spent half her life fascinated by the idea of bigfoot and consumed with a television show devoted to the legendary creature.

"I don't know, it's just so interesting," said Addalynn, 14, a freshman at Nekoosa High School. "The idea that these big, tall animals could be living among us, it just interests me. ... I even think I might like to study cryptozoology (the study of animals that are rumored to exist)."

Yet nothing pertaining to cheese or Ed Gein?!

Tbh, those all sound like things that might have made a FB episode in Wisconsin all the more interesting!

Bigfoot isn't really having a great 2017 thus far, and his 2016 was pretty "non-existent," too. Bigfoot is on the decline.

Things are pretty much dead. NL has nothing, the NAWACers have nothing, Finding Bigfoot finds nothing . . . the deluded may remain so but that's true of any delusion. It's morbidly fascinating to watch them talk themselves into nonsense I guess.

These research assistants don't seem to know a thing about bigfoot.

But this re-creation of Patterson's last expedition does afford some key insights. One expedition note: I don't drink alcohol and according to published research this was an important feature of Roger's bigfoot expeditions.

I'm not much of a photographer. I'm taking some photos but I seem to be distracted by the behavior of the assistants, and it has proved impossible to get them (or me) out in the field. They seem to be more inclined to indoor research.

Alright, let's get back to serious business.

This guy was recently brought to my attention.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPMQ9ioJtLY

He hits all the highpoints!
Blurry photos, tossing of sweets (berries, not goodn'plenty), Patterson film endorsement, gifting, misidentification of raccoon print as "baby bigfoot" ...even some inadvertent racism:
"I believe there are different species of these creatures, like humans. Just like we have a black man, white man, a Chinese and an Indian."

Ah, that old chestnut!

Footers have a tendency to scout out other crytpids and claim them as potential misidentified Squatches.

Dogman, Werewolves, Goatmen = misidentified Bigfoot.

Lizard-men, Fish-men etc = Bigfoot with mange.

And so on...

Yep, Bigfoot's 15 minutes of fame are gradually ticking their last tock.

There'll always be a following, though, but I think the whole Bigfoot movement of the last decade has basically run its course.

Speaking of serious business, seems there's plenty in being this guy's analyst. Though I doubt he knows what an analyst is. He's got a campground for BLAARGers, but he doesn't want any macho types "with their guns and their macho guns and their guns with macho and their macho attitudes and their guns and their nachos and and please believe me even though I suffer from an old boxing injury."

You can't make this stuff up!™

So I've often been curious on this point: Would a Sasquatch react differently to a nude human? (O.K., just so you know...this is a legitimate scientific hypothesis, not a bid to explore the weird fringe fiction world of Harlequin Romance Sasquatch Tales, or worse!)

I've often thought, if I were to find myself face to face with a Bigfoot, and if I had the presence of mind and opportunity, I'd strip. So as to say, "Look! We are both primates/hominids (take your pick)...something you might not have realized because of my "second" skin." Of all the Sasquatch encounter narratives I've read, I don't think I've ever heard of one under those circumstances. Although, I'm willing to concede, a witness might be reluctant to share that detail.
Just in case you smug, self-satisfied, scoffing skeptics don't think bigfooters aren't putting some deep thought and effort in their champagne footie dreams research.

So rather than slightly strange, camo-garbed footers running round the woods, howling and knocking on trees, we're going to get slightly strange, naked footers running round the woods, howling and knocking on trees!

Not so fast. My current research on Patterson's last and most important expedition compels one to adopt this very strategy.

The USA National Park Service is spending $149,927 researching Bigfoot, and other woo things such as...

Quote:
...sea monsters, unexplained lights, and other paranormal activity.

Kawerak Inc., a nonprofit group that serves people of Eskimo, Aleut, or American-Indian descent in the Bering Strait region between Alaska and Russia, received the grant last year. The organization illustrates its project with a picture of "Hairy Man," a mythical Bigfoot-like creature.

The group is not just interested in researching "Hairy Man," but a whole host of "supernatural" creatures...

I don't know what this all means. Maybe, in an interesting way, it shows that Bigfoot doesn't really exist as an animal, but instead does exist as an idea.

What a waste of federal cash, when we (I include myself) have already done this research, which is presented here:
Native American myths/traditions support Bigfoot? A critical look.

Where's my cut of that grant money???

I don't know what sort of idiot trick this Bigfooter is trying to play by talking about being naked in front of the beast.

I can however say that Bigfoot does not have a penis or an external scrotum containing testicles. There are countless eyewitness sketches and artist-assisted diagrams showing what the male Bigfoot looks like. None of them show a dick or balls. It's all missing. I challenge you to find any photo or artist depiction showing genitalia.

They don't copulate like primates. They apparently have a cloaca like birds and reptiles.

A naked man might frighten a male Bigfoot. They might have extreme stress or anxiety upon seeing a man's penis. The females may be also frightened and confused.

A dick with hanging balls are not part of the Bigfoot world. It could really freak them out.

A naked man walking in the jungle encounters an elephant.

Elephant : "How do you breathe through that little thing?".

Encouraging people to make up stories and pretending that these fairy tales are somehow important traditional knowledge is ludicrous.

If people of European ancestry asked for a grant to study the stories of dragons and unicorns and tried to pass such nonsense off as "traditional knowledge" - they would be rightfully scorned for such stupidity.

It might just be another way for the white man to dominate the red man. Sort of like the joke where you say "pull my finger" and then you let out a fart when they pull it. Here the red man takes the money and afterwards all the white men smell the stink and begin to laugh.

The red woman (known as squaws) might detect the trick and warn the red man. They should not be subjected to white trickery and dominance any longer.

When will the red man rise up and shove the whole stupid Bigfoot thing up the ass of the white honky man?

What then about Trump and his probably hidden quest to racially crush all that is left of the savage race with his bigotry?

It's sad but at least it isn't millions or billions of dollars.

Poor Bigfoot, his missus has a pair of boobs positioned halfway down her chest and he's not got a meat 'n' two veg. And to top it all off they have a totally stationary arse that doesn't work in conjunction with their sodding legs!

I challenge you to find any photo or artist depiction showing genitalia.
Although artist renditions do not depict male genitalia, that does not mean it isn't reported, it just means that it isn't drawn.

I've spoken to numerous witnesses that have described male genitalia during their sightings. I guess the artist isn't wanting to publish bigfoot porn.

They're actually seeing Dogmen they have the exposed twigs and berries, Bigfeets do not.

Which brings us back to the eternally unanswered question about the amazing ability of Bigfoot to remain hidden while paradoxically so well observed that we get descriptions of his naughty bits. Not to mention that those who make sketches as part of their "scientific research" are not only too modest to include those parts but too professional to include a little comment like "Naughty bits not included in case the kiddoes see this, but adults with academic interest can see the uncensored version over here."

Where are you talking to these "scores, countless, numberless, etc." footie claimants?

ETA: Further, how in the world do you vet these "numerous claims? Do you have any methodology, any controls in place to combat your built-in credulity?

Riiiiggghhhht, because artists drawing of the naughty bits is the only missing piece in the "academic interest" for Bigfoot. Got it.
