Scientists Puzzled by How the Octopus Got to Be So Smart

Scientists Puzzled by How the Octopus Got to Be So Smart:  One of the things that has puzzled scientists for a long time now is how intelligent animals actually got to be that way - especially cephalopods such as the octopus.  Frankly, I’m less concerned about why the octopus is so smart as I am about why the “Octomom” is so dumb.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Sexual Misconduct Claims Being Investigated:  Fox and the producers of the television series “Cosmos” have announced they’ve opened an investigation into multiple sexual misconduct claims against the show’s host, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.  Now I, of course, can’t really address these allegations, but I do know that Neil deGrasse Tyson was one of the primary people responsible for Pluto being downgraded from a planet to a dwarf planet.  This may very well be Pluto’s revenge.  And while I don’t know very much about astronomy, the one thing I do know is when you start messing with Pluto - you’d better watch Uranus.

LeAnn Rimes Sues Over Botched Dental Work:  LeAnn Rimes is suing her dentist, claiming he botched up her mouth so badly, that it's messing up her career.  I can totally relate - my big mouth made a mess out of my career too, but it would be a real stretch to try and blame that on my dentist.

Yes, the fabled octopus can actually figure out how to unplug the cork from a bottle in just a few hours. Don't think they will evolve into being masters of planet earth for a few more million years.

The story on Neil De Grasse must be true. They carried it as a headline on Yahoo. And I believe anything that Yahoo caries!

Yea - all the stories are actual news events, I simply make up a joke about them.

Question: Is the average octopus smarter than the average Trumpanzee?

Question: Is the Cosmos seeking to humiliate those with the hubris to imagine they can explain it?

Question: Is Lee Ann Rimes down in the mouth?
