Lamont and Dude Ponder Mammalian Evolution and Bugs

“It must have been something.”

“What?”

“Earth, you know, after the apocalypse.”

“Oh, the meteorite. As I recall, it was scorched pretty good.”

“You don’t recall, Lamont. How could you?”

“Well it wasn’t long before the mice appeared. I appeared.”

“You were a MOUSE? Shudder.”

“You were a mouse, too. It’s inevitable.”

“You’re probably right. But what did we eat back then?”

“Bugs.”

BUGS? It just gets worse and worse…”

“Well, there were a lot of them…good source of protein, too.”

“I don’t get how you can so dispassionately accept having been a bug-eating rodent. I’m sure I was doing something else.”

“You don’t remember, Dude?”

“You know, I have a theory about it.”

“What?”

“I think I spent more time in the water than you did. I mean, you’re always more land-focused in our discussions.”

“Are you saying you were a fish?”

“I might have been, but you know fish…”

“Not the brightest phylum on the planet?”

“That isn’t true. There are fist that have headlights.”

“Yeah, because they live in the dim recesses of the ocean’s dark bottom. They need them.”

“You can’t say they’re not an amazing evolutionary adaptation to dark.”

“No, I would never say that, I never said that, but they’re headlights, not brains.”

“What about whales, dolphins and porpoises? They’re intelligent.”

“They’re not fish, Dude.”

“I know they’re not fish. Jeez, Lamont. I swear, sometimes you think I’m an idiot.”

“No, never.”

“Just remember how I found you. Sitting on a sand dune, waiting for a message in a bottle. Just remember that.”

“No, Dude. You were sitting on the sand dune waiting for a message in a bottle.”

“Ooops. My bad.”
