George Bush - An Insult Even To Cavemen?

Man, if those poor cavemen haven't already suffered enough, what with all those Geico commercials on TV these days, now they have to put up with this!


I have one question, though...are we sure that Bush is in the right place here? I mean, it's clear that he's a bipedal primate of the family Hominidae, but I'm quite certain his scientific classification as a species is Homo neanderthalensis, not Homo sapiens.

Lemme just double-check to make sure...

George W. Bush
Kingdom: Animilia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Primates
Family: Hominidae
Genus: Homo
Species: H. neanderthalensis

Yep, I knew they had it mixed up!

Update: I just got an email from someone who thought I was making a homosexual joke about Bush since I had italicized the word Homo above. I wasn't. That is the correct way for it to be written - the correct animal nomenclature. Scientific names must be printed or written in specific ways to reduce misunderstandings among scientists who work in different countries, subdisciplines or time periods.

Scientific names for the basic taxonomic levels above Genus are always capitalized, but not italicized. The Genus name is always capitalized and italicized (or underlined if hand-written), and the full species name must always be italicized.

But beyond that, I personally don't find it funny to make jokes about homosexuals, nor would I ever insult them by comparing them to Bush! :P

    Glad you got a kick out of it too.

  8. Hi Suzie of North Carolina,

    While I very much appreciate your visit, I'm going to have to take issue with your comment here.

    My post is is no way Un-American. If anything here is Un-American it's your comment and your total lack of tolerance for me to be able to exercise my very American right of free speech!

    If you feel that you must "police" people on what they can and cannot say or write on their own blogs, then you my dear are obviously living in the wrong country.

    Thank you again for visiting and I sincerely hope you reconsider your stance on this issue.

    Shine on,
    American Aaron

  9. "Suzie of North Carolina" is right.

    Is totaly unamerican to make US citizens to look bad.

    There for, sign this petition bellow :

    "We, the people signed bellow, we hereby declare we think g.w.b. ceased to be a USA citizen, there for we loudly ask to withdraw above named guy`s passport, id, driving licence and his bank accounts`s money to be equally distributed to all private gas stations from US."

    ps : Suzie, are you sure you ever hear about Universal Declaration of Human Rights ?
