The Funny Papers

A sense of humor is invaluable. Charlie Chaplin said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted." Mark Twain said, "Humor is mankind's greatest blessing," while Will Rogers opined, "Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to someone else." Groucho Marx, the funniest man who ever lived, said, "Humor is reason gone mad." He should know.

It's good to not take yourself too seriously; to be able to laugh at yourself and with others as they laugh at you. An interest as outrageous (as many people see it) as bigfoot research is bound to make the funny papers once in a while. So, without further ado (OK, just a little ado), a few bigfoot related comics follow. I hope they make you laugh. I do every time I read them. If you come across a good bigfoot comic, send it to me, and maybe I'll include it here. Keep it clean; c'mon, man!

Oh, and, if you are one of those super-serious researchers who sees no room for humor is what we do, in the words of Groucho, "Next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you." OK, now without further ado....
