Just when I think things can't get any more stupid, Dyer comes along and proves me wrong. Now I know why all of his released photos where blurred. The clear thing looks...um...like another big doll.
The video itself is amusing in a weird sort of way. It's weird to watch grown men stand around an upside bigfoot doll tied to a tree. The video is amusing because there is fake blood and Tim Ray Fricke or someone else is holding a rifle. Such realism *cough*.
Rick's two blog posts made me bust a gut laughing because he thinks the Bigfoot community actually cares about his big doll. I had a chance to read all of the comments in a few groups on Facebook and NOBODY in the community is doing a double take. Doubling over from laughter is more like it.
Amazing? Maybe if you're five.
"You haven't seen anything yet!" That's true. It's been six years since the 2008 hoax and we haven't seen anything yet. A lot of jaw flapping, a lot of noise, fake doctors, bigfoot dolls, BUT no real dead Bigfoot. At least Rick finally got one right. He gets a gold star in his book today.
I'd like to thank J Walter for grabbing some screen shots and enhancing the stills for us.
The first thing I noticed was that the wrists are tied to the tree trunks. Why? I bet this is how the conversation went.
Tim: Um...Rick? We got this doll thing hung upside down but the arms are still at it's side.
Tim: The arms. They should be hanging towards the ground like it's a real body.
Rick: Oh! We'll jess tell peoples that Rita Morgan set in and made the body stiff.
Tim: Uh...nobody will buy that. Sorry bro.
Biff: Hey man, I know what we can do. There's a spool of binder twine down at the barn, man. I'll cut some up and we can tie the arms to the tree, man. Ya know?
Rick: *crickets*.......Oh, I git it. Y'all do that while I check Facebook and my blog.
Biff: Sure thing, man. I'll walk down to the barn. See ya in 10 minutes.
There is no reason to tie the wrists to the tree unless the arms don't move. The arms probably can't articulate so the boys needed a plan. Hanging the doll upside down in the first place was an ill conceived notion. Dyer likes flair though. It had to look like a real hunt in his mind.
I'm going to assume that the legs are tied at the ankle by a rope and tied higher up on the tree. Nobody would be stupid enough to tie just the arms. My question is, why is the right foot (screen left) at a 90 degree angle? If the body had any weight to it, the toes would be pointing upwards.
The second thing I noticed were the hands. The hands and fingers are pointing up. The hands would be responding to the effects of this thing called gravity and the hand would be bent towards the ground, close to a 90 degree angle. The fingers would bend at the joints as well.
The head looks way too small for the body. The legs and arms look like tubes. There is no muscle definition at all. B-movies have better props than this.
Maybe Rick and the boys visited this place again.
Rick Dyer isn't even trying any more. He's boring, annoying and sad. I'm sure this stupid hoax can get more ridiculous but I'm tired of watching it. I would rather spend time busting hoaxers who are smarter and put more effort in to their hoaxery.
I may or may not post future stories on the half wit. It would have to be worth my time to do so though. He's no longer a challenge.
At least now people are reading up on Doll Boy and they are seeing what kind of a fraud he really is. Nobody cares about Dyer and he was never part of the community.
