Politicians for Saving Bigfoot!
Canadian MP Mike Lake... has called for Bigfoot to be protected under Canada's species at risk act, alongside Whooping Cranes, Blue Whales, and Red Mulberry trees.
"The debate over their (Bigfoot's) existence is moot in the circumstance of their tenuous hold on merely existing," reads a petition presented by Lake to parliament in March and due to be discussed next week. "Therefore, the petitioners request the House of Commons to establish immediate, comprehensive legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot," says the petition signed by almost 500 of Lake's constituents in Edmonton, Alberta.
There is no debate over whether he exists. There's no evidence for it (at least that couldn't have been easily faked and/or misinterpreted). I suppose in all fairness it's possible, but really freaking unlikely. Calls to preserve a population that we don't even know exists is, well, insane.
Although I'd rather have politicians who want to preserve nonexistent species than most of the ones we have.
