Lowered Expectations

Geico CavemanLadies, are you are stuck with a husband so disgusting he would have to bathe to be a slob? Are you so unhappy with the prospects polluting the dating pool, that you’d rather go ghey? If so, our collective ancestors may be to blame.

Neanderthals are also our closest evolutionary relative, and scientists know that at some point tens of thousands of years ago, Neanderthals and Homo sapiens mated to some degree.

Previously, scientists had evidence the interbreeding was going on around 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, but an international research team has established “strong evidence” that Neanderthals and modern humans were mating 100,000 years ago, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

Yep, apparently our ancestors were so horny they’d lie down with anything or anyone. I’d like to think my ancestors were a tad more picky, but since my looks slide further toward the Neanderthal scale, I sincerely doubt it.

Having said that, this story completely explains the Hot Chicks with Douchebags phenomenon.
