Is it okay to teach young scouts to make fun or lie? Would this person be laughing at a spoof of scout masters poking fun at some of their bad apples alleged crimes?
We think not.
The site also implies it is okay to hunt, a species that if proven to exist would be placed on an endangered or protected list.
I came across this gem today, SasquatchHunt.com, in which it appears to be a serious site, with a lot of baloney information on it, until in some points you dig deeper and realize the insult.
Paul Kautz pictured here, runs the hoax – spoof site SaquatchHunt.com
The site is run by a Scout Master from Eden Prairie, Minnesota by the name of Paul Kautz, and we find his actions, including a phony Fish and Game application, which asks for people’s personal information, definitely not “Scout Masterly.”
Kautz thinks it funny, but not many people know the “Munster’s home address” listed on the application.
First of all it is not very apparent at first that it is a spoof site.
Second, it contains videos of people stating their alleged encounters, lending to the realism and confusion of the site’s purpose.
Finally, it contains some bad misnomers for the general public such as the Paterson/Gimlin film being the first well documented sighting of a Sasquatch.
Perhaps a future Hall of Shamer coming.
Till Next Time,
