Over at Salon: “Bigfoot Ruined My Sex Life.

Mostly we just like the clever metaphorical use of mostly forgotten James Bond actors:

I figured that my association with Bigfoot would slowly fade from the Internet and that my legacy, as I wrote to the members of the IVBC, would be to become the “George Lazenby of the Bigfoot field, a vaguely remembered character who made a brief, tiny contribution the nature of which cannot exactly be recalled at the moment.”

Accordingly, we feel the need to nominate some other worthy candidates to George Lazenby status.
