You have to read this one to believe it...a Canadian member of Parliament (probably a leading member of the Doofus Party) has introduced a bill asking for legal protection for...ready?...Bigfoot!
We thought that this was a joke. Unfortunately, it isn't.
Endangered Species Protection Sought for Bigfoot
Recently, Mike Lake, a Canadian member of parliament from Edmonton, Alberta, agreed to introduce a petition that called for Bigfoot to be protected under the Canadian version of the endangered species act.
Lake presented to the House of Commons a petition that stated, “The debate over (Bigfoot’s) existence is moot in the circumstance of their tenuous hold on merely existing. Therefore, the petitioners request the House of Commons to establish immediate, comprehensive legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot.”
The man behind the petition was a Bigfoot enthusiast named Todd Standing, who claims to have definitive proof of Bigfoot but is withholding it until protection for the alleged animals is in place. “When I get species protection for them nationwide, I will make my findings public and I will take this out of the realm of mythology. Bigfoot is real,” Standing said.
And they have a petition that 500 people signed.
Amazing? Incredible? Not really when you have people in the US who continue to believe that "9/11 was an inside job."
Now there is insanity.
