I don't know what kind of animal those bipedal things were, but I think we just found an evolutionary dead end to a subspecies of homo sapiens. What shall we call them? Homo Sapiens Oblivians?

My Google Fu has yielded another possibility: Homo sapiens cepit oblivio, the last bit of which translates either to oblivious, or word-for-word as nevertheless forgetful.

That is a hilarious video!
I'd rank that with the dihydrogen monoxide stuff.
Picking his whatchadilly, technical terminology, for the win!

I kept expecting the woman who was like, “Furry...gorilla-like...picking his watchadilly...” to end with “...and I married him!” but she let me down.

I like to end questions like that by telling people their epidermis is showing. Most check their zipper.

My husband says "People still don't knwo that? That's so third grade!"

Then of course, if not for this song, I probably would have no idea what epidermis is...

There's a Canadian comedian named Rick Mercer. He used to have a segment on a show called talking to Americans. He would strike up conversations about anything beyond their own shores and if it wasn't a country they had recently invaded, they often didn't know it existed. David Letterman used to do a similar thing.

Rick Mercer had a chat with George W when he was still a candidate. He asked him how he thought he would get along with prime minister Poutine. George said he expected to get along quite well with him. Poutine is a French-Canadian dish that consists of french fries smothered in cheese and gravy.
