Missing Link?

Anyone that knows me knows that I have often obsessed over finding the Missing Link. Not so obsessed that I actually became an anthropologist or scientist, but enough that I talk about it in very abstract, thematic ways. Uselessly.

They've never been able to definitely find the one eensy link between man and ape. The gene pools are similar, but something was missing. They may have found it here, and I am sitting here smacking my head in amazement that I didn't get there first. Of course! It's got nothing to do with science, or anthropology or anything you need a degree in. It's about sex!

It seems they are now pondering whether or not there was a little interspecies canoodling going on. I know, I know, put aside your sheep jokes, but this is serious. My first reaction was 'well, duh, we all know men will put the moves on almost anything', except it appears it was the females who did the nasty.

I'll confess to dating a few knuckle-draggers in my time, but this is kinda over the line even for me. I don't think I could convince myself that running my fingers through a guy's hair - and never stopping - would be cool. But then, I think they have to keep digging until they find stone age Margarita mix...

I think they need to keep looking. It's making my Neanderthal sisters look a little desperate.

Neanderthal sister? Are you talking about me or Gilly?

Hey Roz, I was thinking the same thing when I read her blog yesterday...

I hate to break it to you, but there is no "missing link." Anthropologists are currently fully aware of our pre-historic family tree.

And as always, it's fun to see whose family tree doesn't fork...

Was that a weak attempt at humour? A family tree that doesn't fork, ends.
