Default For the science-curious; I think this is cool!

Your Genetic Journey: The Genographic Project, from The National Geographic. This is where my next extra $$ is going, I'd love to find out stuff like this.

This sounds incredible. My wife and I are going to do it! I think going back 10,000 years you'll find most of the Bengals are from the same tribe....

I was surprised to find that my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was a Brontosaurus. This would finally explain my slender neck and love of fresh greens.

Hi...I' m Project Director Dr. Spencer Wells. Your DNA has been analyzed and I regret to say that your ancestral heritage goes back to the south east Asian tribe Bengalis Incompetence...or Homostupidus.

An in-breeding tribe with distinct yellow mohawks, Homostupidus made absolutely no major contributions to culture, art or any of the higher studies now known to man. They were however unique in their advancement of the criminal arts and their dubious ability for self-promotion.

As we follow your ancestral line, you can see that they were kicked out of virtually every self-respecting country, until in a bold move for freedom (and in keeping one step in front of the law)...they left for the New World in the late 1600's to finally settle into Southern Ohio. It is here that they live to this day, typified by their beer guts and cheetoh stained fingers. Still a people of social needs...Homostupidus can be found congregating inside prison yards and outside of welfare offices.

Thank you for your $99 dollar cover charge for this analysis, however the check you sent has been returned due to insufficient funds. Please contact us Immediately to make further financial arrangements.

I see you have a very acute sense of anthropology.....

Though all are scavenging bottom feeders...The head (or chief) of the homostupidus tribe or clan is traditional the biggest bottom feeder... known as hypocritus ludicrus.
Said leader can be easily identified by silver crutches , needed from injuries obtained from consistantly putting his foot in his mouth.

Thank you
