Before Howard Stern made him famous, Mark Shaw Jr. aka “Bigfoot” was already well known as an infamous character around Newport, Vermont. Now that he’s acheived his 15 minutes of fame, we figure it’s just a matter of time before Vermont Teddy Bear commemorates a special edition Bigfoot Bear (it is!) to the Green Mountain State’s latest celebrity.
Yes, Bigfoot is still a resident at the Border Motel in Derby where he regularly calls into the Howard Stern show, when he’s not appearing there, in person. Howard recently gave him $500 to get back to Vermont after Mark spent all of his $5000 “Whack Pack” prize winnings on hookers. What a guy.
Yesterday, on the Howard Stern wrap-up show, several folks were concerned about the possiblility of Bigfoot getting mad and running wild. A Taser gun and beefed up security was suggested…just in case. Artie Lange mentioned that the smell permeating the room when Bigfoot was present was unbearable, comparing it to “body odor, crap and old carpet smell from a motel in Vermont”. First Paris Hilton and now Bigfoot. Welcome to America!
