2011-09-30 18:55:47.934565+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

What does that social construct do to evolutionary issues of reproductive success?

Mr. Seisler is now tied with Gronko of Ghengis Kahn's Mongol Horde for spreading his seed the widest. Considering that Gronko had to pillage Smarkand and The Silk Road to make his record, Ben had the easier time of it.

Hmmm... getting a hundred and fifty bucks a pop vs having to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women....

Only if you're American and don't know how to pronounce "women".

I'm going to go listen to some jam band music, like Ghoti, now...

"Reproductive Success" for humanity doesn't equate to numbers. Case in point: The Duggars.
