Were They in Deliverance?

The time-warp family who walk on all fours - (via Drudge) Good start to the story, read on.

An extraordinary family who walk on all fours are being hailed as the
breakthrough discovery which could shed light on the moment Man first stood
Scientists believe that the five brothers and sisters found in
Turkey could hold unique insights into human evolution.

Yeah, unique insight into generations of in-breeding maybe.

Researchers have found a genetic condition which accounts for their
extraordinary movement.

The genetic condition seems eerily similar to the "marry-your-sister gene" found in certain "hill people" of the south.

The five are all mentally retarded. Their mother and father, who are closely
related are believed to have handed down a unique combination of genes which
result in the behaviour.

Ahh, there it is. It's not that they are a "missing link" so much as they are just missing... something. With any luck, they can end up in the Jim Rose circus and be exploited, er, "used" to their full potential.

So, this scientific discovery basically infers that all humans were once retarded and evolved into being unretarded. But wouldn't natural selection have killed off all the retarded folks, thus exterminating the human race?

I think I work with some guys that are closely related to this family. It's hard not to speed along the process of natural selection for a few of them.

I'm confusing myself.

Thank goodness that Jonathan is amusing me... no posts since yesterday morning? What is up with that!

Mr. Twisted said...

And how often does this "confusing myself" phenomenon happen to you, Scottie?

Yeah yeah yeah I know... lack of posting, lack of funny, I'm a bad person, blaa blaa blaa....

Jonathan Scott said...

No, it's not that. We just don't like posting to our blogs as much as we like adding comments to your jokes, making them funnier, and giving us sense of self worth. Typical thought after posting to Twisted's blog- "Wow, his comment was good, but my comment was brilliant. I really rock. The human race would be nothing but inbread retards crawling on all fours if it was not for me."

Mr. Twisted said...

You just like to think about inbred retards.

And notice it's "inbred" not "inbread." I know that you do naughty things to bakery products, but try and keep that to yourself.
