Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Man: ...which is why the discovery of this Ardipithecus ramidus fossil is so important to the study of human evolution. Man: She lived 4.4 million years ago and may very well have been our ancestor. Man: The smaller canine teeth indicate that this species was not aggressive, but rather lived cooperatively and peacefully. Charley: Pshaw! Charley: You can tell by a fossilized tooth that this creature was kind and gentle?! Man: Well, by extrapolating from extant primate species... Charley: That seems speculative in the extreme, sir! Charley: I would submit that this individual was FAR from kind -- in fact, she was COLD-HEARTED! Man: Wait a minute! Security, grab him! Remove his crude disguise! Charley: HEY! Man: Aha! Man: An Australopithecine -- ANOTHER extinct hominid! Did you KNOW this ardipithecine? Charley: Worse...I DATED HER! Charley: BITCH NEVER GAVE ME BACK MY SHARP ROCK COLLECTION! Man: Obviously biased. I return to my theory... NEXT Charley: Um...can I have that picture?
