Their Only Previous Human Contact Was Writing Checks To Brent Bozell

Scientists believe five mentally retarded Turkish brothers and sisters in a remote corner of rural Turkey may reveal a unique insight into human evolution. They suffer from a genetic abnormality that leaves them only able to walk on all fours. Their genetic gumbo may stem from the fact that their mother and father are described as "closely related."

I read about this just today, it is one of those bizarre stories. All the scientific geeks seem to be arguing about whether it is genetic or not, yadda yadda. I am glad they are keeping their location confidential so they don't get used in some way. God knows how you could, but someone would find a way I'm sure.

There's apparently a documentary coming out. Once that hits, I'm afraid it's only a matter of time before Geraldo and Dateline and 60 Minutes start hip-wading out there.

And then it's all over.
