I have seen bigfoot

Some guys are holding a press conference to say they found a Bigfoot body.

But I have seen Bigfoot already.

I remember when i was about 12 or so, paying $1 to see the frozen body of a Bigfoot/Missing Link/Apeman at the Minnesota state fair.

While you waited in line they spun out a long story of how it had been accidentally shot by a hunter and how it was the object of a court case to decide if the hunter should be charged with murder depending on whether it was human or not.

But in the meantime they conveniently had it on ice for us to see!

Finally you get in the viewing room and peer into a giant chest freezer to see something encased in about a foot of ice. It seemed to be a hairy biped of some sort but there was a lot of strategically placed mud and dirt and blood (!) and bubbles frozen in the ice that prevented any clear examination of it. It was the in-person equivalent of a blurry bigfoot photograph.

I don't know how the court case came out. I'm sure the hunter is out of jail now as the penalty for shooting a crash dummy in a racoon coat must be pretty low.
