Knobby sighting

As I feel obligated to share news of every bigfoot sighting here on the site, here’s the most recent one. This film, from what we’re told, was shot by a fellow named Thomas Byers two days ago in North Carolina. I think it’s pretty clearly fake, but what do I know. After all, I believed in John Edwards.

What kind of lame ass bigfoot doesn’t even pick up his feet when he walks? How long could you live in the woods, shuffling your feet like that? And it looks to me like he’s wearing shoes. I suppose it’s possible, however, that he might have found some when raiding a campsite or something.

Anyway, here’s the fellow’s writeup on YouTube:

On the evening of Tuesday, March 22, 2011 while driving down Golden Valley Church Road I and a friend Carolyn Wright observed the Big-Foot Knobby or one similar to it cross the road in front of the truck we were in and run into the woods. It came from out of the field from the direction of the creek and we later took photos of feet prints in a freshly plowed field. I jumped from the truck and took this video of it as it crossed the road in front of us. At one point in the video it made a snarling growling sound and looked back at me. I also shot the other video posted with this one while I and my friend Carolyn Wright were trying to see where it went to. I heard it breaking branches as it ran out of my sight into very thick brush. If you listen to the other video you can hear me and my friend talking about what just happened in front of us. You can watch and listen to me and my friend talking in the below video.

I think that guy who claimed to have one trapped in a block of ice a few years ago was a lot more clever. At least he made some money out of it. But, maybe this new guy has an angle too. Maybe he’s trademarked the word, Knobby. And maybe we’ll see t-shirts in stores by Christmas.

If you’re interested, there’s more detail on the Knobby sighting on the guy’s website.

In related news, officials in Siberia are planning to open a research institute dedicated to yeti studies.

And, for what it’s worth, when it comes to startling, unexplained run-ins with the oddly moving creatures, I think the ninja assassin beats Knobby hands down.

[Thanks to my friend Patty in Chicago for sending this in.]

    Lamest bigfoot sighting ever. We could do 100 times better in Riverside Park. If we all chipped in, we could rent a gorilla costume. Or, better yet, maybe the people at Fantasy Attic would loan us one. What would we call the Ypsi big foot though? How about Yip?

    It looks more like a Benny Hill sighting to me. I just needs the music.

    I don’t know about tshirts, but there’s a Knobby sandwich basket.

    People on Cryptomundo are pretty confident that it’s fake. The one thing they think could make it real, though, is the fact that it had a penis. Most fakes don’t.

    I do a better bigfoot impression when I shuffle out in the morning to drag my trashcan to the curb.

    Bigfoot or not, I’d shag the shit out of that thing.
