Find Bigfoot: Win A Fayetteville House

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 12th, 2012

That’s right. There’s an incredible offer out there. If you can prove Sasquatch exists by turning in a body, there is a “debunker’s” (they probably prefer the world “skeptic’s”) group who will give you a free house in Fayetteville. Fayetteville, Arkansas, that is. One assumes you have to go live there to enjoy it. Fayetteville seems to always be in the news. But more on that in a moment. How about some details on this “prize”?

Being skeptical myself, sometimes, of such offers, I post what might be metaphors of the types of houses available for such a prize. Okay, just sharing my Midwestern sense of humor.

This offer was posted last Sunday:

Hello everyone. From time to time the Fayetteville Freethinkers have offered rewards for evidence of paranormal powers demonstrated under careful and proper observing conditions. It’s been reported that Arkansas is in 3rd place for having a lot of “Bigfoot” activity, so on behalf of one of our members, we are offering the reward of a house in Fayetteville to anyone who can catch Bigfoot and bring him in.

The following affidavit provides the legal details and is presented to demonstrate the full legitimacy and legally binding nature of this offer:

If you have Bigfoot, contact this attorney.

So, despite the fact this Fayetteville Freethinkers group has been having fun and heaping ridicule on the recent “illegal Bigfoot search permit” charges (see here), in this situation they have gone all legal on Bigfoot seekers.

If you find a Bigfoot, they are bound legally to give you a house.

Why should we not be surprised that in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where the media has focussed so much attention on a college football coach being injured in a motorcycle wreck with his young former volleyball player along with him, the Fayetteville Freethinkers would exist??

Should we be shocked this is happening in Fayetteville? Of course not.

In earlier Fortean Times columns and then in my 1983 book, Mysterious America, I wrote: “Cryptologic or coincidence? Jim Brandon should be credited with calling attention to the name Watts/Watkins/Watson, and its entanglement with inexplicable things. Some other names involved in mysterious events pinpointed by Brandon are Bell, Mason, Parsons, Pike, Vernon, and Warren. The influence of such names as Mason, Pike, Warren, and Lafayette, for example, issues, in some cryptopolitical and occult way, from their ties to the Masonic tradition.”

Those familiar with my writings know of my musings on “The Fayette Factor,” which have been highlighted by Jeff Rense’s site and Todd Campbell’s site, Through the Looking Glass, as well as several others.

So, if it’s real, if you bring in proof of a Bigfoot then you can own a house in “livable condition” in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas!

Thanks P.D. for the news tip.

    Hmm, so where is the legal description for the house (property it sits on), proof of taxes current, asbestos-free cert, lead free paint & plumbing cert, home inspection report, etc. If I have to show my subject’s DNA, I wanna see theirs. Otherwise I’m going with Todd Standing’s $2,000,000 and making the Bigfoot’s death look like an accident.

  2. Desertdweller responds:

    I can assure you that the typical house in Fayetteville does not resemble the examples shown.

    One might try looking inside any of these houses for Bigfoot. The house itself would pose a bigger danger than Bigfoot. Personally, I wouldn’t.

  3. bigyeti responds:

    I live in Fayetteville and all of these houses you pictured are much too nice to be here! Just kidding of course, but its fun to see Fayetteville making the news…and any news NOT about Petrino is good news I guess. I tell you what, if anyone finds bigfoot, I will trade you straight up for my house in Fayetteville; no “surety bond” necessary.

  4. WellynDowd responds:

    Speaking not only of Fayetteville homes, but also of Bobby Petrino, here’s another Fayetteville home that is on the market:

    Here’s a virtual tour:

    Perhaps you can win this house if you can find a Bigfoot that Mr. Petrino had an affair with.


  5. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Did anyone read clause 7?

    It practically says you need to fork in 10 grand in order to submit your evidence, because you can bet your abominable a$$ there will be “a dispute as to whether the claimant has satisfied the term’s of the principal’s offer”.

    Did the Fayette guys hire the same lawyer as Randi? 😉

  6. Hapa responds:

    A house in Arkansas for a Bigfoot body? Does these people not know how to get people to get a type specimen? A house in ARKANSAS?

    I mean, yeah, Some parts of Arkansas are real nice (the Ouachita Mountains are spectacular) and Fouke of course is there (the gas station there is amazing, but the nearby bigfoot museum, when I went to it, seems to have been closed for years), but really, why not a house in the Bahamas or the San Fernando Valley in California? Or forget a house, why not a Dodge Viper?

    Heck, why not offer a date with Katy Perry?

    Even Michael Shermer would go out and bag one in order to collect the prize!!!

    how much land goes with it?
