    Possibly not as amusing as the courtroom in which this lawsuit may be heard.

    Could someone explain to me why these guys are being prosecuted? I mean, it was a big practical joke, and it's not like they made money out of it... at most, they should be made to compensate scientists and others who lost billable time following a manufactured trail. But I would be horrified if the punishment was any more severe.

    Who said prosecuted? It would be nice if they were. They committed fraud and received money on false pretenses.

    oh... I guess settlements then... that should happen... I didn't know they'd received cash... the moment I learned it was a hoax my mind switched off in regard to this story.

    See, now, if this were The Twilight Zone, the hoaxers would be kidnapped by an embarrassed, shadowy bio-megacorp and lowered into a pit containing, of course, Bigfoot.

    You're allowed to search for bigfoot too, you know.

    Are you saying Bigfoot is the Santa Claus of the wilderness then?

    Maybe. Depends on how the lawsuits go. Either way, the lawyers will be plenty rich.

    Reality is nearly as funny....

    Hey, if the Bigfoot "expert" can't tell a smelly stuffed sasquatch costume from a "real Bigfoot" while "authenticating" it... who can?

    I love the police chief giving reason to why he fired the police officer hoaxer (on CNN link):
    "He lied on national TV," Turner says of Whitton, "so a defense attorney now could say, 'How do we know you're not lying now?'
