I had a pretty busy, aggravating day at work today, and really needed a good laugh. And then I stumbled across this: a press release about known Bigfoot hoaxer Tom Biscardi presenting a radio show that would prove once and for all that the Patterson-Gimlin footage is a hoax. I’ll let that sink in for a minute…
Back? Ok. So yes, that Tom Biscardi, the guy who has seemingly been attached to every major Bigfoot hoax of recent times, is now trying to make money by claiming that one of the best pieces of evidence that there may actually be a Sasquatch species living in North America is, itself, a hoax. Tom Biscardi, the guy who in 2005 claimed to have footage of a captured Bigfoot, which you could see for the low, low price of $14. Tom Biscardi, who then had to refund said $14 to everyone who paid in advance to see his captured Bigfoot, after Biscardi claims that he was “hoodwinked” and couldn’t deliver on his promise. Yes, the same Tom Biscardi who in 2008, claimed to have inspected the dead body of a Bigfoot that was shown to him by fellow hoaxer extraordinaire Rick Dyer. Biscardi claimed to have seen the body and “touched it…measured its feet…felt its intestines,” and promised the world conclusive DNA evidence as proof of their lofty claim. The Tom Biscardi who is such an expert that he didn’t realize that this Bigfoot body, that he so closely inspected, was actually just a rubber gorilla costume in a cooler. Biscardi, once again, claimed he was hoodwinked. Hoodwinked, he says!
So you’ll pardon my riotous laughter when it comes to Tom Biscardi now saying that he has irrefutable, undeniable proof that Bigfoot DOESN’T exist! Because the Patterson-Gimlin footage is fake, don’t you know! And he has extremely reliable witnesses! Like Bob Heironimus, who claims to have worn the suit, even though he can’t produce the suit, or any proof that he ever wore the suit, and totally got paid to go on TV and tell his story! Totally reliable! Or how about Philip Morris, who claims to have sold the suit to Roger Patterson, but who also has absolutely no proof of this! No similar suits! No receipts! Reliable!
If you can’t join ’em, beat ’em, eh Mr. Biscardi?
And while we’re at it, let’s ignore all of the evidence that actually supports the possibility that the film is not a hoax, like Roger Patterson maintaining till the day he died that it wasn’t a hoax. Or all the scientific research and analysis done on the film, conducted by, you know, actual scientists like Dr. Grover Krantz, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Bill Munns, etc., who all say the film is most likely authentic? Or how about Bob Gimlin, the only other living witness to the incident, who could have made literally millions of dollars exposing this story as a hoax at any time, but has yet to do so and continues to this day to stick to his story?
I’m not saying the Patterson-Gimlin film is real. It is very much still up for debate. But why should we even entertain Mr. Biscardi anymore? At best, he’s a bumbling idiot who was easily duped by fondling a rubber gorilla costume, and consistently falls for very obvious hoaxes. At worst, he’s a pathological liar who gets off on fooling people who are as dumb or dumber than he is and has nothing better to do with his time.
So yes, let’s listen to Mr. Biscardi analyze and debunk a film. On a radio show.
