Oh that’s where he is…

This astonishing find is proof, if more proof were needed, that stripey shirts and glasses did not evolve on Earth. They came from space.

(Happy April 1st. I was originally going to do a much longer version of this, but as the month drew on, it became quickly clear that nothing I would write could rival the reality.)

    Like, Uranus. or is it Neptune? hehe

  2. Oh wow, I don’t know how I missed that meteorite controversy. I went to the “journal’s” website, and it’s freakin’ hilarious. It looks like it was made by the same guys who did the Space Jam website in 1996.

    I know him!
    He just said he was going for chips and pop.
    I was wondering where he was the last million years.

    Ed…I know you like Attenborough clips. Here’s one about flying penguins done by the BBC (for April 1st, if the “flying penguin” part didn’t already give it away) in the style of an Attenborough clip. I found it amusing.
