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.

Of course the buyer of the potato artifact purchases insurance. Anyone want to take any bets on the chip breaking in shipping?

    I don’t mind humor, as matter of fact I encourage it, but at some point the old potato chip look a likes and gags diminish the value of a legitimate argument for Bigfoot. I get teased enough for my believing in Bigfoot by friends and family, stories like these only add fuel to the fire.

  2. CryptoHaus_Press responds:

    omg! i thought i had truly heard and seen it all re: EBay, but this is definitely a new low (and not low sodium either!).

    gads, i mean, it’s bad enough poor ol’ bigfoot gets ‘squatch from the beef jerky people (or did i miss the part where they’re donating a piece of the profits to cryptomundo or at least some nat’l parks?), but this is worse than the folks who see Virgin Mary in their bagels, cheetos, etc.

    or is it?

    maybe this is a ‘holey’ bigfoot?

    That comes to prove that American television is on a steep decline, when people begin to pay more attention to the chips they’re eating,than to the shows they’re watching! 🙂

  4. cryptidsrus responds:

    I think it is funny as heck nevertheless…


    So true, so true…

  5. sausage1 responds:

    A Dorito with mange.

  6. squatch-toba responds:

    Yikes!! I hope T.B. doesn’t have the munchies!!

  7. Hawkeye responds:

    “A Dorito with mange”

    now that was funny

  8. Point Radix responds:

    Did they find this chip in the bag ‘as is’?
    Or was the bigfoot image intentionally cut out of the chip (e.g., through meticulous selective soaking)?
    That information would make a difference to the bids.

  9. MattBille responds:

    I thought it looked more like Barney the Dinosaur, myself.

  10. planettom responds:

    Depending on which way you turn it, I even see Abe Lincoln with a mullet. 🙂

  11. a_mangy_human responds:

    “A DORITO WITH MANGE”!!! LMAO good one Sausage1!
    yeah I agree with red_pill_junkie, signs of the times no doubt!

  12. A. Santini responds:

    If they put that chip down on a white background, it could even be a Yeti… Just like the one I found in my spag-yetti.

  13. sausage1 responds:

    One tries, one tries …
