Forensic reconstruction of Homo erectus based upon skull in the collection of the Smithsonian

WASHINGTON,DC--Paleoanthropologists researching the fossil records of early man discovered the cause for the extinction of Homo erectus some 2-million years ago. The peer reviewed study will be released in this week's edition of Factitious Science Magazine, published by the Smithsonian Institute of Total Bullshit.

Homo erectus is the first known example of early man to have walked upright on his legs. The fossils are found in geographical strata known to date from the Pliocene era.

Frederic Flintstone, PhD, the author of the study told TheSpoof.com's Cultural Anthropology Writer, Skoob1999, "Yabba dabba do! We know what killed off Homo erectus; it was a lack of Viagra."

Dr. Flintstone has published many controversial theories regarding the ascent of man including "videos" purporting to show cave men coexisting with dinosaurs, a claim vigorously disputed by his protégé and one time assistant, Dr. Barnard Rubble.

"Once again, my old friend has lost his flipping mind. There is absolutely no evidence that Homo erectus had difficulty achieving erections. That is precisely why they are known as Homo erectus. Besides, the fossil record clearly shows Homo erectus had access to penis pumps," said Dr. Rubble.
