Bigfoot Hunter Claims to Have Killed Famous Cryptid



Infamous Bigfoot hoaxer Rick Dyer is in the news again; this time he claims that he shot and killed the mythical creature in a wooded area on the northwest side near Loop 1604 and Highway 151 in San Antonio in September of 2012- and he plans of taking the cadaver on tour.

"I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington (state) and we got the body," Dyer told KSAT.com on January 2 of this year. "Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body, from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."



Dyer has recently released photos of the alleged creature (referred to as "Hank"), which he said he managed to trap by nailing pork ribs obtained from a local Walmart to a tree:

"I nailed ... pork ribs from the WalMart down the street to the side of the tree, and low [sic] and behold, he came and started eating the pork ribs off the tree," said Dyer, in an article which was published by the Huffington Post yesterday.

Like most "evidence" of Bigfoot, Dyer's pictures and videos are on the grainy side.  Photos of such quality may have been able to dupe people back in the 1970s, but considering that it's now 2014 and even a $10 flip phone is capable of delivering better picture quality than the pictures released by Dyer, we recommend taking Dyer's story with a grain of salt (and a Walmart pork rib, or two).

Which begs the question:

Why do so many self-described "Bigfoot hunters" seem to have a preference for cameras that take pictures with all of the optical clarity of Mr. Magoo after a pupil dilation?  Seriously, Mr. Dyer, if you can afford DNA tests and optical scans, why can't you get yourself an LG Expression or a Samsung Gusto?  You can pick up either of these phones for about the same price as a pack of pork ribs, and either phone would take better pictures than the so-called "evidence" you have provided.

And, in a related story, if anyone's interested, we have a body of an alien we stole from Area 51.  If you want to see it, we'll charge you only half of whatever Dyer decides to charge in order to see his Bigfoot!

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chauffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within t…

Black Eyed Children Finally Explained!

Last month, we received an email from a reader in Michigan, in response to our article debunking the "black eyed children" phenomenon, which links these so-called "paranormal" entities to recreational drug use.  The reader, whom we will call Onizuka in order to protect his identity, claims that not only is he familiar with BEKs- but that he was one.  "Onizuka" agreed to speak with JOTB via Yahoo instant messenger.  Ironically, this conversation took place on 4/20, a date which is embraced by those who are part of the drug culture.


JOTB:Thanks for taking the time to speak with us.  In one of your previous emails, you stated that you were a "black eyed kid".  What did you mean by that?

Onizuka:  Last November I was driving late at night at turned on the radio and came across an episode of Coast to Coast AM and the topic of the show was black eyed children.  It convinced me to do some research on the topic, and that's how I found your article.  A…
