“Ideal for job interviews.” Lol only in California.


Carter: You get bears around here?
Lupo: Heck, yeah.
Carter: I’ve never seen a bear do anything like that.
Lupo: Well, what else could it be?
Taggart: Gigantopithecus Americanus.
Carter: Taggart, what the hell?
Taggart: It could still be out there.
Carter: What?
Taggart: Note the large stride, trail of destruction, the extended footprint.
Carter: Tell me you don’t mean Bigfoot.
Taggart: I mean Gigantopithecus Americanus.
Carter: Let’s give him a sobriety test.
Lupo: How’d you get here so fast?
Taggart: Heard you on my scanner.
Lupo: And what, you were just passing by in full cammies and night-vision goggles?
Taggart: Yeah.
Lupo: Nice.
Carter: Hey, guys. Think we found our hit and run.
Lupo: Is that a body?
Carter: Not anymore.
Taggart: He’s saving the rest for later. That’s how they feed.
Carter: I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life.
Taggart: I have. It’s never pretty.
Carter: Would you stop with the Bigfoot? This is serious.
Taggart: I take Bigfoot very seriously.

Breach of accepted convention in zoology that rules the formal scientific naming of organisms treated as animals.
See errata thread for details:


If someone tries to use scientific looking names without sticking to The Code:

If it’s all about big feet:

Needs Cryptozoology tag.
And if it hasn’t yet been seen, paging @pesco

Imagining Sasquatch movie - cross between Predator and Southern Comfort.


It’s samsquantch Ricky, samsquantch.

I like the shirt. A lot.
But prices go up with popularity? I do not know as much as I would like to about crowdfunding, but it seems counter intuitive that the more they sell, the higher the prices go. Unless there are a fixed number being made, but I did not see on the site where that is the case.

Betcha. If any of the BB staff wants to trigger me, they just put non-Capitalised non-italicised species names in their posts, and call them latin names. (The latter might also result in @Medievalist tut-tuting, I think.)

And while cryptozoology might be on the fringes of established science, a serious cryptozoologist would, of course, stick to the code. No way anyone is going to take you seriously if you don’t.


I can edit, if it puts your mind at rest, Biologus admirabilis.

Now you got me conflicted: editing would fix the issue, but make this conversation unintelligible.

I suggest publishing an erratum in Mutants today, referencing post and follow-ups. That’s also good for our impact factor.
