    wow the biggest story on the net!

    that is COOL!

    here is the latest quotes from the article:

    "It's the ultimate summer Friday news story: CNN Webcasting a press conference hosted by the men who claim they nabbed a dead body of the legendary creature known as Bigfoot.

    "the two men from Georgia who claim that they found the corpse while hiking. Biscardi wouldn't actually show the body, saying that he had invited Fox News reporter Megan Kelly to show it on-air and that a number of scientists would be performing an autopsy on Monday."

    "Starting Monday I should have assembled some fine scientists that will do the autopsy to find the origin and death of this creature,


    "That didn't do too much to appease the skeptical audience of the press conference, who were on the verge of heckling."


    "On the Web it was equally chaotic. Twitter users went nuts, with Twitter Search (formerly Summize) bringing up dozens of posts per minute from users who were watching the press conference online or expressing their opinions within the site's 140-character limit. "

    "Third-party analytics site Twitscoop showed a barrage of Twitters that included the word "Bigfoot," and determined the word to be the hottest term on the microblogging site at the time."


    "People have been Googling it, too. The search query "Bigfoot press conference" hit the top three on Google Trends."

    "R.I.P. Harry. The Hendersons will miss you," one Twitter user said jokingly in reference to the '80s comedy Harry and the Hendersons, about a family that adopts a Bigfoot. Others were more skeptical, given the dubious nature of the photos. "That Bigfoot in the box looks so totally fakey, like a bad Halloween costume," another Twitter user said.


    "We just decided to have a little fun with it," Whitton said. When asked why he didn't call authorities when they claimed to have found the body in early June, he answered, "I didn't see any need to at the time. It seemed like it would create a frenzy."

    "I want to protect the species," Whitton continued. "Everyone would be up there hunting for Bigfoot and disturbing the habitat."

    From: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080815/sc_nm/bigfoot_dc_1

    "Bigfoot" fails DNA test.

    "Results from tests on genetic material from alleged remains of one of the mythical half-ape and half-human creatures, made public at a news conference on Friday held after the claimed discovery swept the Internet, failed to prove its existence.

    Its spread was fueled by a photograph of a hairy heap, bearing a close resemblance to a shaggy full-body gorilla costume, stuffed into a container resembling a refrigerator.

    One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis."

    "As the team and I began examining this area near the feet, I observed the foot which looked unnatural, reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot.
    Mr Whitton and Mr Dyer agreed to meet Mr Bicardi at a hotel later that day to provide a written admission of what they had done, Mr Kulls said.
    But when Mr Bicardi arrived at the hotel, the pair had vanished,

    HAHAHA

    love the net!
