Some new bigfoot characteristics listed......... they like to receive and give gifts!

[B][SIZE=3]Woman claims Bigfoot is real, and is in the Goethe State Forest[/SIZE][/B]


Most people think Bigfoot is a hoax. But Denise DesChenes is convinced that she has seen the mythical creature once in person, and other times when it was unknowingly captured in pictures and videos she took during walks in the Goethe State Forest.

DesChenes never believed in Bigfoot before. She said she really never had time to pay attention to what was around her when she used to ride horses in the woods.

But what she has witnessed over the last few years during her walks in the woods has changed her mind.

I hear them walking with me and I know they're there, she said, deliberately using the plural. DesChenes said there is more than one creature out there.

That's a very lonely women.

Hay!, maybe Swampy stands a chance.
3.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
Did Bullz-i move to Florida? Just checking.
4.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
She can bring me a gift basket of food anytime! Mmmmm....jerky....


And why is it that people who get pictures of bigfoots are always the worst photographers ever?


5.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
That's a valid point. Why is that the "Before" picture of all NutriSystems, or Weight Watcher clients are blurry and wearing frumpy clothing with unkempt hair but the "After" picture is always crystal clear and the client is smartly dressed with perfect hair. Doesn't make sense. Probably just a coincidence. :cf:
6.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
Plus, they're always in a bikini afterwards...If I went on a diet that made me want to wear a bikini after six weeks, I'd sue the company...
7.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
But back to bigfoots...

[I]In some instances BRFO [sic] investigators have found that Bigfoot can also leave gifts in return, Monteith said. Examples could be unusual rocks, flowers or stick arrangements, turtle shells, shells, nuts and even gutted animals. Many times the objects are not from the local area, she said.[/I]



How cool would it be to have some forest debris that a bigfoot gave you?

Would it be too metrosexual to want a turtle-shell necklace from a bigfoot?

I'd feel gypped if all I got was a disemboweled possum or something like that...

I mean, I understand about good intentions and it's the thought that counts and all that, but come on...
8.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
I think the whole thing is very touching. I would love a flower or rock arrangement from a bigfoot. It would be a memento of the walk we shared together...well other than the stench that won't wash out of my clothes.
9.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
LOL...

I wonder if they would accept a nice shrubbery?
10.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
You know that you are meant for each other if you can hold hands with a bigfoot on your walk and there isn't the need to talk.
11.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
Elephants that paint command high dollar in New York galleries, I'm thinking some Bigfoot art would also command some high prices. Can they sign their work? Maybe just smear some eviscerated carcass on the work? My mind is always looking to get on board the next big thing.
12.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
I went on a blind date like that in college...
13.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
DParker could keep an Excel spreadsheet of the sales. Swampy, you could collect some of the artwork and negotiate other works in the making. I could use my contacts in New York to find a suitable gallery.

This could work.

Not being critical, but they are called visually impaired now.
16.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
Do you know anyone whose couch you can crash on in Mass.? I'm thinking an in-person visit might be necessary. These people seem very picky...

Entitled "Sunday on the Pot with George"


Not sure a bigfoot could do something as nice as this. But we'll see.
19.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
If bigfoots had any sculpting talent, I could see one of them turning out something like this. It's call the Scripps Turd, but I don't know why. That's not what the "artist" called it, LOL.

Very Nice! Think of how proud his parents are when they drive by that.


"Gladys, my son did that!"
21.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
Do you think the artist did that from memory or did they have a model to go by?


Such detail.

"Gladys, my son did that!"[/QUOTE]


LMAO!

"I remember his first BM that he did all by himself!"


Fact is stranger than fiction: That was in front of a hospital in San Diego. Dollar to a bran muffin they had a gastroenterology department...

The irony went completely over the head (so to speak) of everyone involved in passing the artwork though committee. Yes, I said "passing" and called it a committee, LOL...

23.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
:grin:


I wonder if the artist had ever hunted turkeys...
24.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
I doubt it, but he musta had some hellacious nightmares about them...:jd:

LOL...


I don't know how you get a wave out of that thing...Or anything other than a turd, LOL. More proof of something...I'm afraid to hazard a guess as to what...

[I]Tucker named the artwork after the Greek god of rivers and oceans. Tucker said the form, to him, suggested a wave, and it was hailed by many critics when it was revealed.

Michael Brenson of The New York Times wrote of Okeanos in 1988, “The sculpture is a rippling curve that seems to spew out of the earth and curl up like a wave. It suggests not only water, but also clouds and vegetation and human limbs.”
[/I]
25.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
LOL, I think the emporor has no clothes.


There might have been a wave involved: (colon) the kind of wave that hits you when you eat some really rich cheesecake.
26.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
"and it was hailed by many critics when it was revealed."


That is funny right there.

31.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
[I]She said that she has also left gift baskets in the woods containing items such as beef jerky and crackers, and sometimes loose tobacco. She thinks this might attract the Bigfoot creatures to her the next time she returns because the items she left on previous walks were always gone when she returned.[/I]




Since this seems to work so well, I'd like to know if she's leaving the bigfoot Florida crackers or Georgia crackers....It might make a difference...
32.) DParker - 03/25/2014
I lived in Orange County, CA for a couple of years and I was always fond of pointing out to the residents of Costa Mesa that they paid some Japanese artist tens of thousands of dollars to erect a "sculpture" in front of a couple of buildings that was nothing but a pile of granite rocks. It was titled "Spirit of the Lima Bean"...I kid you not.

33.) Deerminator - 03/25/2014
Or Salties or Ritz
34.) Deerminator - 03/25/2014
I could make those

I want those photos of resident Obama playing spades with his body guard while everyone else was in the war room watching the capture of Bin Laden unfold. It would give a softer side to the resident that not a lot of people get to see.
38.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
What kind of gift do you get a bigfoot? A forest-warming gift? You don't want to spend too much because that might give the wrong impression. You want something that says, "I'm so glad we have this time together", without all the sappiness of a Hallmark card.

You have to wonder if those Japanese artists injured themselves laughing so hard at the gullibility of their employer when the check was handed over.
40.) bluecat - 03/25/2014



I wonder where they got their inspiration?

I can tell you what not to give...A personal grooming aid...That would be insulting.

Don't ask me how I know...

I'm sure teenage bigfoots always dread the "talk" about personal hygiene from their parents.
43.) Swamp Fox - 03/25/2014
Personally, I think if you wait til they're teenagers, it's too late. They already know more than you do...

At least that's what I've heard.

Where were all these little minxes when I was in high school?...:wink
44.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
I know right? Sometimes I think "the talk" is just so the parents can get some new information. LOL!
45.) Tom-Wisconsin - 03/25/2014
Going Bigfoot hunting as soon as the snow melts...probably late June or July.
46.) bluecat - 03/25/2014
It's mating season so be careful.
47.) Deerminator - 03/25/2014
Try dress'n up as a HOT female Sasquatch.
