Where the Heck am I From?

I usually browse my hometown newspaper to catch up on all the Poteau happenings. My favorite section is actually the Courthouse News - I can find out who got pulled over, who got married/divorced, and who has a restraining order against them. Fasncinating, really.

But today - some WACK news. Why, oh why, does it have to be from my county in OK?! Not my town specifically, but close enough. Here are the latest news stories (emphasis added to the most ridiculous parts):

Octavia to host Bigfoot festival
By Ty Pierce, News Reporter

"I believe one day soon we will discover that Bigfoot is real, and then we will find something new to ridicule. That is the way we as humans work. Remember the earth was once flat, the moon was out of reach, even dinosaurs were discredited until we found bones! We search to know it all. Yet sometimes, apparent truths aren't enough," Christopher S. Fleming, Publisher/Editor of the Unknown. For those who believe or are just interested the First Annual Bigfoot Fall Festival in Honobia is just a day away and will last over the weekend.

Honobia is the hot spot for Bigfoot sightings and signs in LeFlore County.

What is a Bigfoot? It is classified as an ape-like creature reportedly sighted hundreds of times around the world since the mid-nineteenth century and variously described as standing 7-10 feet tall and weighing over 500 pounds. Many residents of Honobia believe in this mysterious creature.

Honobia is located on highway 144 in the Kiamichi Mountains. These mountains are filled with legends as well as natural wonders. The two day festival features, Bigfoot Prints, Bigfoot Tours, Bigfoot Stories and Bigfoot Shirts. You can even take you picture with Bigfoot! Also available at the festival is arts, crafts, games, food, antiques, music and entertainment.For more information email honobiabigfoot@yahoo.com.

Oh, and that's not all folks.

Service for Christian hunters
On Sat. Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. there will be a Hunter's Worship service held a Wister Pride Park in Wister. This will be an outdoor service for all Christian hunters men, women and youth. Join us as we worship God together and pray for a safe hunting season, clean shots and big deer.
There will be a free Chili Dinner after the service. All are welcome to this non-denominational worship service.

Gotta love it. Pure entertainment.
