Were Neanderthals liberal comedians?

See also

Photographic evidence is pouring in from the National Academy of Newspaper Scientists that Neanderthals may have been liberal comedians.

At least that's what it looks like to me. I didn't even know there were Neanderthals left to pose for photographs, until I spotted them on Geiko commercials a decade ago. This latest photo, featured by Science Recorder Friday, was taken by "scientists", those anonymous all-seeing marvels of modern journalism. The Science Recorder article, or at least the snippet of it viewable without a subscription, even documents who Neanderthals had sex with, which explains what made it newsworthy. A genome documents this gabfest fuel.

A bigger broadside at BBC builds its belief from a bone, that Neanderthals could talk just like some humans can. Its photo looks more like a Geico rep than Bill Maher, but the background of the photo looks exactly like one of Maher's TV sets.

Bingo!

My wife isn't impressed by the similarities I see: the clenched smile, the self confidence in the eyes, the straight-back hair. She notes the differences: the bigger nose, the greater distance from the eyebrows to the hairline, the wrinkles on the forehead, the beard. I don't know, but I think the differences she sees are attributable to age. I think Bill Maher will look exactly like that, once he reaches 100,000.

What do you think?
