Hitchhiking Bigfoot

A huge mouth-breathing Sasquatch at a rest station with a loincloth, fangs, creepy white eyes (no pupils) and his thumb out would very much like a lift. I remember being told when I stopped by that the owner has a microphone hooked up to the head so he can he can have some fun with busloads of foreign tourists and the like.
