QUESTION OF THE DAY

If you were walking through the woods with a rifle and you spotted sasquatch, would you shoot him?

I would have to imagine that, yes, i would. Although it could work against me in several ways:

I believe that Washington State has a law prohibiting its hunting and I'm unsure if many other states have similar laws against shooting any creature that is not in season or that you're unsure what species it is.

Also, I could be heavily villified by the press + scientific communities.

It's probably not very good eating and I imagine I would not be allowed to stuff him.

And worst of all it might be a poor shot, winging and eranging the beast. I would then be the recipient of the best documented sasquatch beating on record.

But truth be told...yes....absolutely. I'm totally gonna try and bring that myth to light by a simple bullet to the neck, temple or heart region.

For the record- I'm definately shooting it... for science.

yeah, that's the same reason you'll use to justify kissing the girl from venus, too...

sarah said...

no way. why are you guys so bloodthirsty?

abigail is right.

You and Abigail both would wind up as nobodies, but not I. I would be the dude who shot sasquatch. I would meet the president, and grace (in bearded grandeur) the front of Field and Stream magazine. (Yeah that's right I'm growing the beard back!)

I don't know. Since I do not believe in the existence of Sasquatch, I would at least half-believe it was a person in a suit. Shooting that person would be a mistake.

You don't believe in Sasquatch?

I'm disappointed.

sarah said...

you do believe in him, and are anxious to shoot and kill him. I'M disappointed.

Steve doesn't believe in Sasquatch!?

1/2 the people who know me think Steve is a myth.

I am in Kellogg's Total agreement with Josh - I would be the dude who shot bigfoot!

I would not pardon the beast...

Steve said...

My state doesn't need to invent beasts in the woods to attract attention.

We have real ones.

It would depend on his attitude toward me at the moment, if menacing, then his goose is cooked.
If not, I might settle for a picture instead.

You don't have a camera Peck. Shoot the hairy ape man! ...for science, of course.
