    Foo exclusive: Bigfoot press conference shocker!

    So here it is, what you've been waiting for: proof. Bigfoot shows up to his own press conference!



    When I got there they were checking for credentials, so I didn't even try to get in. But later I talked to someone who got in, so I tried again, but the lady wouldn't let me in. I didn't want to let Foo down, so while she was talking to someone else I snuck in. Now I'm kind of peeved because they let Bigfoot in. I'll betcha anything that Bigfoot did not have a press credential!

    Edit: OK, here's the complete report on the Bigfoot Press Conference.

    This guy was out on the street holding a sign that said "Honk 4 Bigfoot" and "Palo Alto Loves Bigfoot." He was a friendly guy but a little strange. He was carrying two scanners and a slick Yaesu "ham" radio that mounted to his handlebars. The lady on the left was a serious Bigfoot conspiracy theorist. She felt that the media was suppressing the evidence and was asking the guy if he seriously believed in Bigfoot.


    OK, this was just gratuitous:


    So the local NBC, ABC, and CBS affiliates all showed up. I saw the local Fox affiliate inside as well.


    I didn't get in until about 30 minutes into the press conference, and people were asking serious questions like they actually had a body and actually spotted a living bigfoot. Five minutes later someone asked "Is this a hoax?" I can't believe it took 35 minutes before someone asked that question.

    There was no shortage of cameras and serious news people there. I asked a guy with an ABC News credential: "Why are you guys taking this seriously?" He had this complex look that said "My journalistic integrity makes me appalled," but then he grumbled half-heartedly "Well, it's entertaining."


    I think all three guys took questions. This is Tom Biscardi showing two additional images documenting his "proof." Descriptions are further below.


    At the end he said he would pass out copies of the two additional photographs. There was a crush of people trying to get the pics. Biscardi was making people show their credentials so I couldn't get them.


    After the press conference, Bigfoot kneeled down while someone interviewed him on camera, and the question I heard was: "What's on your iPod?"


    This is the "additional photographic evidence" they produced. I couldn't get them so I took a picture of someone else's pictures. Note that the pictures they printed were web-resolution pictures that were blown up, so they were slightly pixelated and no better than what you see on the web. The first picture shows a close-up of Bigfoot's mouth, the teeth are in the middle and the tongue is sticking out to the left. The bottom picture shows a live Bigfoot walking in the woods.



    I would like to thank AllenG, UA, artifice, trsidn, jsharr, and Tude for "encouraging" me to attend this press conference. Otherwise, I would have done something stupid like try to be productive today.

    Bump. OK, I put the complete report in the first post. I was limited to 10 pictures; here's a couple of more not-as-interesting shots.

    The first time I tried to get in, they were checking everyone's credentials so I didn't even try. But I thought the guy with the moustache looked pretty funny.


    These news guys were pretty serious about getting their footage.

    Carbon,
    First time I've seen the entire report.
    Awesome. I'm jealous.
    I may be able to swing you some press creds for the next time.

    Cool, I can be the Foo West Coast Correspondent.


    I can't believe the home pages of CNN, ABC, NBC, and Fox still have links to this story! These hucksters succeeded in getting publicity probably far beyond what they even expected.

    OMG! I love that you were able to go.

    Be productive? Now why would you do a thing like that when you could be getting this exclusive footage.

    I'll try to get something half as entertaining out of the RNC.

    Be careful.

    1,800 people were arrested at the last RNC.

    Hey, look at the very first picture in this thread. I think I took a pretty damn clear picture of Bigfoot!

    From the Fox news site:
    "At this time action is being instigated against the perpetrators of this fraud," Kulls writes on Biscardi's Web site. "On behalf of myself I can say with certainty Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer [are] not the best Bigfoot trackers in the world!"
    Seems to me they are jsut as good as any other bigfoot tracker.

    I think it's kinda funny that this Biscardi guy was played like this.
