I guess for pure fundraising efforts, I have overlooked that bag of potato chips in my kitchen. Now comes word that a Hampton, Virginia, resident is selling a chip with a hollowed out “image” of Bigfoot in its middle over at eBay.
Here’s the description:
I have here for auction one ruffled potato chip that looks like Bigfoot. Just for fun, let’s call him Chipfoot.
The chip is in very good/stable condition and should ship quite nicely.
Compare my photo by using your favorite Internet search engine for a famous picture of Bigfoot. There’s a striking resemblance.
I reserve the right to refuse bids from unfavorable or zero feedback bidders. No shenanigans please.
Happy bidding and good luck! Buyer covers shipping and insurance. I hope you win.
I don’t know; it kinda looks like an overweight Yeti to me versus the classic Patty. To each their own vision of Squatchip, I guess.
The ultimate Yeti collectible, The Bumble Cookie Jar (above) vs the Patterson-Gimlin famed frame Bigfoot (below, right).
Of course the buyer of the potato artifact purchases insurance. Anyone want to take any bets on the chip breaking in shipping?

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
