Definitely Real ‘Captured Bigfoot’ Exhibit Coming To NYC?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 7th, 2014


Is Bigfoot in the Big Apple? Well …

With Barnum-esque hype, a circus announced that Bigfoot has been captured and will be on display June 7 in New York City.

“For the THRILL OF A LIFETIME come see the strangest creature EVER brought to civilization before he is safely released back into the wild,” reads one poster for the event.

An outfit called the Tiny Top Circus says it is hosting the public exhibition at Washington Square Park in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. “He is a sight to see,” circus rep and noted hoaxer Joey Skaggs told The Huffington Post. “You will not want to miss this!”

Skaggs has pulled a prank or 10 before. “Give the media a sensational story and they’re all over it,” he has said.

Oh, Joey, we so wanna believe this time. The elusive and possibly fictional beast has already left quite a digital footprint on HuffPost, especially concerning hoaxes.

So anyone who shows up at the display might want to heed the words often credited to P.T. Barnum himself: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

    There’s one of me born every minute.

    If I was in New York I’d go see it.

    Is this guy in cahoots with Rick Dyer? Who could learn more from the other?

  3. Goodfoot responds:

    Calling Joey Skaggs a “noted hoaxer” is like calling Joseph Goebbels a “wild child”. I can’t wait to see what this gag entails.

    My all-time Joey Skaggs is “Rename the Gypsy Moth” (“call it the Hitler Moth, call it the Idi Amin Moth…call it ANYTHING but the Gypsy Moth!”)

    But the Cathouse for Dogs (I think that one was on the TODAY SHOW) was a classic as well.
