Bigfoot, ???, profit

By Peter Nowak, CBCNews.ca

Tomorrow is a big day: We finally get to see honest-to-gosh proof that Bigfoot exists. It seems the body of the 7-foot-7 hairy creature has finally been found in north Georgia (the state, not the former Soviet republic) by three men, who are promising to unveil photos and DNA evidence on Friday. There's one catch though: they apparently won't be showing off the body.

Wait a second... no body? Isn't giving out the DNA evidence before showing the body a little like skipping to dessert when you haven't even had the appetizer? Or maybe it's a more like the underpants gnomes' business plan?

Needless to say, there are tons of skeptics out there, such as here and here. We'll find out soon enough.

In the meantime, we're still worried - like deceased comedian Mitch Hedberg was - that there's a real, out-of-focus monster running around out there.
