It’s been a great couple of weeks for Iran. First, Obama lifts sanctions and gives their uranium enrichment program the go-ahead. And now, it looks like someone has gone and validated their official, state-sanctioned belief that Jews are descended from monkeys and pigs: A geneticist at the University of Georgia believes its possible that humans resulted from pigs mating with chimpanzees.
The human species began as the hybrid offspring of a male pig and a female chimpanzee, a leading geneticist has suggested.
The startling claim has been made by Eugene McCarthy, of the University of Georgia, who is also one of the worlds leading authorities on hybridisation in animals.
So, kinda like, Alec Baldwin hooking up with Rosie O’Donnell.
In the course of his research, Dr. McCarthy seems to have developed a bit of … pig lust.
‘My opinion of this animal has much improved during the course of my research. Where once I thought of filth and greed, I now think of intelligence, affection, loyalty, and adaptability, with an added touch of joyous sensuality — qualities without which humans would not be human.’ [Emphasis and “Ewwww!” Added]
I strongly suspect this story may turn out to be a prank. (Sorta like Global Warming minus the trillions of dollars that could have been spent making life better for billions of people.) So, we probably don’t have to worry about a forthcoming debate over marriage rights for pigs and chimps.
Also, South Park totally called this one:
Or as Bart Simpson put it, “God, Shmod, I Want My Pig-Monkey-Man!”
