[Humans are apes in the same way that ducks are birds, and for the same reason.]

That's not a very good comparison because...well ducks ARE birds...

This is like a sprint race to the truth, and Abishalom stopped just short because he's afraid of yellow tape.

Actually, humans are hominoids the same way ducks are antanoids. "Hominoid" is another word for "ape".

WOOSH, goes the point.

I'm assuming he was just trying to be funny and the actual gist of the message was "nuh-uh".

This is one of the funniest quotes i've seen on fstds.

5/30/2012 5:50:57 AM


Yeah, true it's funny, but most people I know, atheist and religious alike, have a mental picture of 'ape' as 'gorilla' or similar. Yes we're wrong, but it's a really common mistake. I can't get to excited over this.

So basically... no, except yes?

And humans are apes. Duh!

But to be honest, a better comparison is that humans are hominids like how ducks, geese, and swans are all waterfowl (family Anatidae).

This is my head. This is my desk. This is the sound of one hitting the other. Ow.

Oh My Dog!

Humans are apes in the same way that ducks are birds, and for the same reason

Why yes, yes they are.

Quack, quack ...

So, if she ... weighs the same as a duck?

She's a Witch!!

I'm sorry, my brain needs time to cope with the fact that Abishalom took a swing, stopping it a hairs breadth of the point, and then moved to Andromeda galaxy to finish the swing.
