Oh... I thought it was using satire to allude to the idea that some people who don't believe in God expect him to do certain things and because they don't see this God doing certain things they assume he doesn't exist. While we don't often talk about what Bigfoot does or doesn't eat; we consistently refer to what God does or doesn't do. At least, that's what I got out of it.

Ah, now we're getting somewhere!

But why would they force you to eat his diet? That just don't sound right!

That's a shame. 'Cuz June's pretty sure she saw him driving the car right behind her as she was going through the 'drive thru' section of Dunkin' Donuts this morning!

--So she footed the bill (yup, bad pun) for his double espresso latte, just to be on the safe side...

More about spending grand amounts of time on something we don't believe in.....but I like what you got too! It was a quick post as I had to cook some grilled cheese and tomato soup for three hungry youngins.

(I'm sure Bigfoot would love GC and tomato soup!)

Because they think that emulating Bigfoot has some kind of value?
That you must be as much like Bigfoot as possible because if you are not, then you must be missing out on something?
What's next - the idea that Bigfoot created humans in his own image and that his diet is indeed the One True Diet?

My guess is they might assume that because Bigfoot has managed to stay hidden for so long and because of his elusive nature he must be very healthy and that whatever he eats would be good for me. I agree... It doesn't sound right.

Well, just to be on the safe side, I will not be asking for those droppings.

Well, the diet of Bigfoot, and for that matter, the contemplation of whether or not Bigfoot exists, in what capacity he exists and where he might exist does not really attempt to insert itself into global politics, the way I live my life, the way others live their life, etc...

As I said, if large groups of people kept knocking on my door telling me I should be eating twigs and berries because their grainy photos of Bigfoot showed him snacking on such but they didn't have much else to go on then I'd be pretty apt to slam the door in their face. Similarly, even if they invited me out to the woods to search for Bigfoot myself I'd probably be rather annoyed for the simple fact that I am quite certain Bigfoot isn't there and I really don't need multiple expeditions into the wilderness to prove that. I've been in the woods before but all I saw were squirrels throwing acorns at my head and the occasional skunk.

Don't you agree?

No, because after buying him that double espresso latte, he thanked me, and told me, himself, that he doesn't tend to like goose patte.

-Doesn't eat geese of any kind. Said he doesn't need to.
