Bigfoot hoaxers say it was just 'a big joke'


www.cnn.com

The two men who claimed to have found the carcass of Bigfoot have surfaced to say: Hey, it was just a joke.

Not everyone is laughing.

n an exclusive interview with CNN affiliate WSB, the two hoaxers -- car salesman Rick Dyer and now-fired police officer Matt Whitton -- said the whole situation began as a joke and then got out of hand.

"It's just a big hoax, a big joke," Dyer said.

"It's Bigfoot," Dyer explained. "Bigfoot doesn't exist."

Whitton chimed in: "All this was a big joke. It got into something way bigger than it was supposed to be."

I am really angry about this.

"Bigfoot doesn't exist."

That makes it all right?

This whole fiasco will undoubtedly damage the work of serious cryptozoologists and make it harder to present good evidence of Bigfoot's existence.

If someone had really found one.. I doubt they would have been
as sketchy and squirmy as these 2 idiots are..

Im glad they fired whitton..

""It's Bigfoot," Dyer explained. "Bigfoot doesn't exist." says Dyer.

But.... that's not what they are saying on their blog.

"Rest assure you haven’t heard the whole story yet and when we can, we will update you via this site when possible. Sorry for all of this confusion but “it is what it is” and YOU”LL SEE WERE STILL TELLING THE TRUTH and we DO HAVE A BIGFOOT BODY!"

" So we decided to go ahead and do it since our negotiations with a couple of the high profile buyers has stalled, do to all the crazy press coverage.

You should have seen their faces when we walked into the freezer and unwrapped Rickmat. One of the chics in the group screamed and then puked all over herself and a couple of the guys were in a total state of shock. They could barely talk when we left the freezer IT WAS AWESOME! I wish we had known about these folks a few weeks ago they’re really nice and very very smart. I’m certain they would have saved us the big mess we now need to clean up."

These guys are trying to milk this hoax to death. They are going to string people on as long as they can. What a bunch of idiots.

flagged and starred.. they finally admit it. I wonder what it has done to cryptozoology now.

This is infuriating, what losers would do this ? smh

All they have done, besides earned themselves their 5 minutes of fame, is ruin any credibility any new evidence real theorists and researchers may bring to light in the future.

I got their gorilla suit right here
(lol)

These hoaxers seem to not care about the credibility of the news media to help bring out the truth.
And, they were cops.
Just one more reason to not like cops.

All of us can enjoy a good hoax.
These guys messed up with their youtube videos. They just made everyone angry.

I for one am glad the officer was fired.

It will be one more excuse to lump all of cryptozoology together and make it all look ridiculous.

Most of cryptozoology is not even Bigfoot and Nessie, it's finding the giant squid, the "ghost bird" ivory-billed woodpecker, determining whether or not the thylacine is really extinct, and discovering new species of animals.

Not only will this mess make anyone who has ever admitted to sighting (or hearing, smelling, etc.) Bifgoot a potential laughingstock, I am afraid it will be a setback for the more serious aspects of cryptozoology as well.

Who do these guys think they are, anyway, to decide for all of us that Bigfoot doesn't exist?

I think the gene pool in Georgia needs more chlorine.

They didn't have to admit anything.

This is pretty much old news on account of them skipping with the money into thin air.

At that point, the jig was up.

I am glad this whole event happened. If anything, it teaches everyone to ask questions and demand evidence.


Can't wait for the next one...

"Servant!"

"Fetch me my 1000 gallon tank of boiling water!"

Servant: "Yes sir".....


*Wheels tank in center of room*

"Now fetch me those boys who tried to fool the world, and thought it was funny!"

Servant: "Yes sir"......


"It's Bigfoot," Dyer explained. "Bigfoot doesn't exist."


"That was your comment correct?"

Dumb idiot: *goofy hick up* "Ahhh, ayeah"

"Take him and his friend and boil them alive please"....

Servant: "With pleasure master!"


*Screaming agony coming from slowing boiling hoxers.*

"Maybe next time(which there wont be for you) you will think about damaging the Bigfoot field."

"Go ahead and die now....."

I feel better now.....
