2010 Needs Us…Needs Truth

May 7, 2010

Due to a large number of research expeditions scheduled early in the year, The Beer Yeti staff has been occupied with just about everything but keeping the world abreast of our work via this blog.

It looks like we have been missed. In our short absence we noticed the rapid decline of anything resembling truth being disseminated in the mainstream media, and have directed the communications staff to get back to the task of interfacing with the world.

Many thanks to all the readers who have badgered us to return. We would like to say that we’re back exclusively for you, but that would be a lie. Exploitation brought us back. The continued, horrifying objectification of the Yeti and Sasquatch for base personal gain.

You know what we’re talking about, SkyMall.

Anyway, we are back, and looking forward to presenting you with some of our more recent findings. As always, feel free to contact us with relevant stories.

So what exactly is it that you sell, Sky Mall? Shower radios, or exploitation?

The implications of Sky Mall selling this monument to ignorance are huge. Every year, approximately 650 MILLION travelers are exposed to their in-flight catalog. 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 ?
