PORTLAND, Maine — The current situation in Iraq may be bad for Saddam Hussein, but it could be great for Bigfoot buffs.
Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman says the legend of Bigfoot dates back 5000 years to ancient Mesopotamia — now modern Iraq — and a hairy creature named “Enkidu.”
Enkidu plays a major role in the Epic of King Gilgamesh, and Coleman claims Gilgamesh and Enkidu engaged in a lot of cross-species gay sex, with an occasional threesome.
Coleman figures ancient cultures used myths to explain factual events, which means that Iraq could be chock full of artifacts proving the existence of Bigfoot’s gay past.
Hussein’s iron hand made things difficult for archaeologists but Coleman figures serious research for ancient Bigfoot relics will begin once the political climate improves.
Coleman is the author of a new book, “Bigfoot! The True Story Of Apes In America” (Paraview Pocket Books).
