Uh-oh, the creationists were almost right

It’s a remarkable instance of convergent evolution. We’re going to have to reinterpret some phylogenies, and the human genome project is going to have to be completely redone with a sample that includes a representative collection of yokels.

At least we won’t have to feel guilty about chuckin’ ’em in a blender.

    Blenders are too small.

    Wood chippers. Available at low, low prices at your local garden/home center, and perfect for cleaning out the ‘dead wood’ in the Trump Administration.

    Careful, PZ. Start talking about those sponge people as a different species, and pretty soon we’ll be talking about ethnic cleansing.

    Snarki @1 – Chucking them into a blender is funny because it’s a humorous absurdity. Wood chippers aren’t as funny because then it’s just imagining murder.

    I see a new witch hunt coming on…. If they pass through a sieve unharmed, they’re true creationsists. Except that would be a valid test.
