I watched Rick's video earlier in the day but this was before I had read the updated news story. This video is priceless. Freezer Boy puts on an act implying Phoenix just isn't an important of enough location for him to stop and show his Bigfoot doll.
If people were not aware of the recently updated news article, this would probably make sense to the 25-30 who actually think Dyer has a real Bigfoot. The news article does no favours for Rick Dyer, but Dyer doesn't care. He only cares that we spell his name correctly. For very obvious reasons I make sure it is spelled correctly. We don't want Google getting all confused and shit.

A sideshow-like display featuring an alleged Bigfoot body has canceled its Arizona appearances because they had nowhere to put it on display.
The specimen comes from Rick Dyer, a self-proclaimed "Bigfoot Tracker" whose web site says, "I tracked a creature. I shot it. With tears in my eyes, I watched it take its last breath." Dyer says that was in 2012.
Dyer hired promoter Andrew Clacy to book stops on the "I Told You So" tour. Clacy told CBS 5 News that the body has undergone DNA testing, MRI scans, an autopsy, and more scientific testing in the last year. However, results from those tests are not yet available.
Clacy had been negotiating with various Valley locations that might be interested in hosting the exhibit. He said shopping malls or other venues should want to pay him to have the display on site because of the tremendous crowds it would bring in.
Clacy and Dyer have a credibility barrier. Dyer admits to being the man behind one of the biggest Bigfoot hoaxes of all time. In 2008 he was involved in a scheme to sell another alleged bigfoot body to the highest bidder. The story got national attention and Dyer went into hiding for months.
CBS 5 News has learned that Clacy could not find a single venue that would pay him for the show, nor could he find a venue that would allow him to set up if fees were waived. Even the International UFO Congress, which kicks off its five-day conference in Scottsdale, turned Dyer and Clacy's exhibit away.
"He's a known hoaxer," said conference organizer Maureen Elsberry. "We are a reputable conference and we did not want to be associated with that."
Dyer and Clacy insist the body they have is not a hoax.
"I spent hours looking at the specimen and it's real," Clacy says in a Youtube video. "I've touched it, its skin. It's not a joke."
Michael Shermer, the executive director of the Skeptics Society, told CBS 5 News the whole idea is ridiculous.
"Science is not done by promotional tours," Shermer said. "Why hasn't he submitted the body for scientists to analyze? The answer is obvious: it's a fake. If he has nothing to hide then let him show it to the professionals first before taking his victory lap."
Arizona appearances may be scrapped, but Clacy and Dyer are continuing the tour with high hopes. The pair pulled into Albuquerque Tuesday morning, but still had no location there to exhibit.
"We're not sure where we can pull over in a public place," Clacy told CBS 5 News. They plan to find a suitable spot and call the media.
They also said they have a solid booking at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in San Antonio, TX. A spokeswoman for the venue had not yet confirmed that.
Shermer, the skeptic, had three words to say. "Fake, fake, fake!"
I think Ricky Dyer needs to get a new marketing person. Andrew can't get a space for free and even the U.F.O. folks want nothing to do with the traveling hoax-in-a-box tour. Do not despair though, Dyer & Co. will be in a parking lot near you. Yep, the discovery of our life time will be shown in parking lots across the country until it comes to rest in Texas.
Freezer Boy is taking a royal pounding on his official fan page. I guess all of those rational thinking individuals must be "haters" as well. Things are getting so bad that some people on Dyer's side have resorted to creating fake accounts and then posting in favour of Rick's claims.
One "woman" left a comment saying a friend of her's saw the Bigfoot, and it's real!
I did some checking myself and came to the same conclusion as Scott Johnson. Judi's profile picture is indeed a photo of porn star, Raven Riley. It's not the same photo but it's from the same photo shoot.
Porn stars are coming out of the woodwork on Rick's page right now, as I sit here typing away. I have no idea why a Dyer supporter would choose to pretend to be a porn star but, what ever blows your hair back, I guess.
It would be a damn shame if their reputation was tarnished by showcasing Dyer and his Bigfoot doll on movie nights. Folks might get the impression that the higher ups in the corporation were promoting or condoning this fraud. Maybe if enough people speak up, management will change their minds.
