Somehow, this evening’s discussion turned to an argument about Bigfoot as he appeared on the ‘Six Million Dollar Man.’ (Said character, by the way, should still be named as such, because frankly, my ear finds The Bionic Man to be an awkward and awful name.) My wife insisted that Bigfoot was an alien (correctly) while I remembered that the creature was also bionically enhanced. She remembered the character being played by Andre The Giant (correctly) while I remembered the monster bearing the distinctive brow ridge that marked the face of Ted Cassidy, aka Lurch from the Addams Family television show. Between the two of us, though, we Rashomoned the discussion to a point of coherence, at which point the child chimed in to tell me that Bigfoot was close friends with Nessie and the Chupacabra in real life. (While I’m quite proud, I have no idea where that particular bit of brilliance came from.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wants to know how you feel about cryptids in general, asking: Bigfoot: FACT? Or REAL?
