Georgia Gorilla: now officially a hoax

We have confirmation: the Georgia bigfoot was totally fake. From Fox News: owner Tom Biscardi paid an "undisclosed sum" to Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, the two Georgia men who say they found the body, for their frozen corpse and the privilege of trotting them out in front of TV cameras.

At the same time, Biscardi sent self-described "Sasquatch detective" Steve Kulls back to Georgia to check out the body.

Kulls, it's safe to say, was severely disappointed.

The upshot? The real Bigfoot, once found, is now missing. So are Whitton, Dyer and Biscardi's money.

Two guys, a rubber suit, and one well-executed scam. Hope Biscardi gets his money back.

And back into the realm of the credulous I go.
