A Southern Man Meets Sasquatch -- and Beats Him With a Stick (VIDEO)

A Southern Man Meets Sasquatch -- and Beats Him With a StickHard-hitting journalist Keith Olbermann provides us with incisive stories about the news and politics of the day. And then, sometimes, he just gives us dumb stories about Bigfoot. Yes, Bigfoot. Or "Sasquatch," if you want to use the fancy term for him.

On the latest installment of 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann' (weeknights, 8PM ET on MSNBC), we learn about Southern gent Tim Peeler. Apparently, Timothy met the mythical beast Sasquatch in his backyard -- and lived to tell the tale.

Tim was behind his house in North Carolina, trying to scare off some coyotes, when he encountered a Sasquatch. Here is his description of the possibly imaginary creature: "[He] was ten-foot tall. He had beautiful hair. He looked like he had six fingers on each hand." So. There you go. If you live down South, be on the lookout for a very tall thing with nice hair and a few too many fingers. Ahem.

Fortunately, Tim was not injured by his encounter with Bigfoot. He scared the beast away by yelling at him and poking with a stick. "And I said, 'Git away from here; git, git!'" is the full quote from Mr. Wheeler. You might have to hear it in his accent to appreciate the beauty of the statement. But seriously, Tim, we do think that you are kind of awesome.

And for your additional viewing pleasure, here's a news report about the incident from WBTV and WJZY in North Carolina:

With all the important news going on concerning the economy and especially the oil spill i'm glad a liberal network like MSDNC and "journalists" like Keith Uhhhhlbermann are concentrating on the important issues.

It's a one minute story on a segment called "Oddball". If you want unnecessary drama just turn on Glenn Beck.

Someone had some good moonshine before this took place.
