image for 'Scientists' pretend to find another missing link in Homo Naledi!
Homo Naledi - really just a small person

'Scientists' have proudly announced the discovery of some human like fossils, and absolutely true to form have concluded them to be yet another link in the mind boggling chain of so called missing links.

The bones were discovered in a cave near Johannesburg, dubbed the 'Star Chamber', and in an attempt to give the human bones an air of scientific import been named 'Homo Naledi'.

The pretend human ancestor differs from a typical human in the following completely trivial ways. The height is ESTIMATED to have been 5 foot - vastly different to typical humans? and the GUESSED weight is 100lbs - again completely typical. The hips are meant to be SIMILAR to another notorious 'missing link' that of the infamous LUCY, where the hip bone of our new marvel is said to be similar to the half a hip found of LUCY. Curved fingers are another dubious alledged difference.

In every other way, the fossils appear human. Dr William Harcourt-Smith of Lehman College who led the study of Homo Naledi's feet described them as "virtually indistinguishable from those of modern humans."

One vital 'difference' is that the brain cavity of the pretend ancestor is supposed to allow for a brain the size of an orange. One wonders if that is such a difference considering that to all intents and purposes, the fossils suggest nothing more that early humans.

The predictable media circus continues....

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
