Wow, I had to comment on this thread as Penn and Teller once again prove that stereotypes exist for a reason.
I wish that someone would stand up in a town hall meeting and ask MM directly as to why he and his organization drank the Sonoma Aid and fell for Penn and Teller's stunt.
Too bad that the squatchopedia was taken down. Here is a reference to the whole MM hoax-
"The hoax involved "the Sonoma video," a recording of a purported Bigfoot sighting in California's Sonoma County in 2005. The video was made by someone calling himself "Mark Nelson," an admitted "amateur naturist." Now naturist was once synonymous with "naturalist," but its more recent meaning is "nudist." Also Nelson said he was a member of a rock band called Total Nutcase. Nevertheless BFRO proclaimed the Sonoma footage to be genuine, and, when it was revealed to be a put-on made by Penn and Teller for their TV show BS! (my editing as to not violate forum rules), BFRO suggested that it was actually Penn and Teller's claim that was bogus! However, when BS! (again my editing because violating forum rules is a bad thing) aired, BFRO removed all references to the video and has never mentioned it again. (See http://www.sasquatch...hp/Sonoma_Video.)"
