The response to The Beer Yeti’s call for a boycott against The Home Depot has been overwhelming. A wave of anger over the marketing of “Sasquatch the Garden Yeti” has been sweeping like a tsunami of justice through the greater cryptozoological liberation activist community.

That is 650 Million people being bombarded with harmful stereotypes, and having their misconceptions cemented into an adamantine indifference to crypid rights. Read the rest of this entry ?
