So easy, even a caveman could do it

Signs of Neanderthals Mating With Humans

Neanderthals mated with some modern humans after all and left their imprint in the human genome, a team of biologists has reported in the first detailed analysis of the Neanderthal genetic sequence.

And now for a few cavemen ads:

Jules Crittenden‘s stoked about having caveman genes,

In fact, I was deliriously happy driving home tonight, thinking about all that grand and terrible prehistory.

Jules also pokes fun at the AP’s take, “While many people think of Neanderthals as very primitive, they had tools for things like hunting and sewing, controlled fire, lived in shelters and buried their dead.” Jules:

AP apparently thinks we got the non-Neanderthal part of our genome from Homo metrosexualensis or something like that.

Or at least from those Warren Buffet cavemen. Either way, fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance – or so they claim.

And,
Whoa!

Conservatives?

Have scientists now stumbled on the source of contemporary conservative (formerly Neanderthal) white male anxiety? Are they expressing their distress with the relentless humanization of their kind?

Tea partying cavemen?

    This is not surprising news. The evidence that humans mated with Neaderthals is all around us. All you have to do is take a look in the news, or on the street, or in church.

    I was going to point out the neanderthal behavior overwhelmingly prevalent at antiWar rallies*, but whatever floats yer boat…

    *Or pretty much ANY rally involving residents of San Francisco. I’m kinda glad they’ve decided to stay out of Arizona. Should be a considerable improvement in the overall worldwide gene pool if they stay at home.

    SF Residents are kinda like that…
