Expensive Rubber Suit

It seems that a rubber suit stuffed with dead animal carcasses has just been sold on E-bay for a quarter of a million dollars. This isn’t just any rubber suit of course, but the one that was touted as being the body of a Bigfoot back in August of this year.

According to the descriptive copy on E-bay some of these monies will go to settle various lawsuits that have burgeoned in connection with this, one of the most egregious frauds of 2008. None, apparently, will go to the perpetrators.

“Are We Alone?” was at the now-infamous press conference at which the Bigfoot body was announced. Be sure to check out what we heard, and what various people involved with this bizarre affair (including the man who made the quarter-million dollar costume) have to say on our August 25 show, which you can find by scrolling down here.

I guess this is one way to beat the credit crunch. Pull some stunt with a hairy suit, hold a conference about it, then flog it on ebay for quarter of a million dollars. Profit!

I was going to sell a grey alien skeleton, but I think it's too soon now. I'll wait another year or so. I've got mermaids too... well, it's a monkey torso fused to the tail of some unsuspecting fish but no one will know the difference.
