So apparently some “scientist”, and I use the term loosely, has sequenced some DNA that’s totally from a Sasquatch.  Take a look:

A team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” living in North America. Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.  [From the press release]

Seems legit.  Although wouldn’t it be better to prove that Bigfoot exists before you start sequencing it’s DNA?

Also, how did they get the Sasquatch DNA sample in the first place?

Ketchum says her DNA sample was obtained from a blueberry bagel left in the backyard of a Michigan home that, according to the owner, sees regular visits from Sasquatch creatures.  [From this article]

Uh huh.  Nothing wrong with this study at all.  Top notch science here.  I’m sure it’ll go through the peer review process quickly and be published soon.

Ketchum has not allowed scientific peer review of her findings.

Ah.  Hmm.  Well, I’m sure she has her reasons.  And I’m sure they have nothing at all to do with the quality of her work.  After all, of course she did her work at a very prestigious lab.

[H]er company, DNA Diagnostics, has received an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau.

But of course, that’s only because the BBB is trying to hide the truth!  The truth of blueberry-bagel-eating Sasquatches living in Michigan.  And all the people criticizing the study have been infected by chemtrails, fluoride, and nanoprobes and are secretly working for the government.  Or something like that.
