FITSNews – August 21, 2008 – In what we’re sure will be the least surprising story we’ve ever written, those two Georgia rednecks who claimed to have found Bigfoot turned out to be 100% full of shit. Not only that, they’re now being sued by the Bigfoot-hunting morons who took them seriously … and paid them $50,000.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

They claim their hoax was not for profit, but Atlanta residents Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer received $50,000 from a California Bigfoot tracker who now plans to sue to get the money back.

The two Georgia men’s tale of having found a Bigfoot carcass in the North Georgia woods really started to stink when California Bigfoot enthusiasts finally examined the body and found it was just a costume.

“There will be legal action” said Catherine Ortez, who works for Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. in in Menlo Park, Calif. The organization paid for rights to the men’s story and their find. “If this was a joke, it was very methodical and thought-out,” she said.

The moral of this story is that you should never believe anything anybody from Georgia tells you. Like last year, when they said their football team was going to open a can of whoop-ass on South Carolina in Athens.

Yeah … that turned out to be 100% full of shit as well.
