NICK EICHER, HOST: As if 2020 could get any stranger.
Police in Scotts Valley, California, asked folks to keep an eye out for Bigfoot. Yes, Sasquatch.
Locals were pretty distressed over this—if not a bloodthirsty creature on the loose, then the idea that police want the citizens on the lookout for a myth.
But some good news came early Thursday: officers found Bigfoot and he was a little banged up, but he was definitely still intact. His hair was perfect.
And you’re thinking, wait. This is a hoax, right?
This particular Bigfoot’s guarded the entrance to a museum devoted to lore about him, the Bigfoot Discovery Museum in Felton, California. Thieves apparently made off with the 200 pound, four foot wooden sculpture of his likeness.
But when word got out that authorities were on the trail, they dumped Bigfoot by the roadside.
So say what you want about 2020. But at least you can say this: We’ve found Bigfoot!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
