Professor Quippy: Proto-Jungle Fever

Professor QuippyThe anthropology world is screeching and swinging from the branches. The news from a new DNA study shows that humans and chimps split much later than we originally thought from an original species.

And that they continued to mate long after that first split.

You got it, our early hominid ancestors were bumping uglies with chimps, as recently as about five million years ago, according to the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard study.

Of course, some suspect that incidents of hot monkey love may be a little more recent than that. And General Kang is positive.
