GENETICISTS working on a Neanderthal baby have assured potential surrogates that their friends will pretend it isn’t weird-looking.
Dr Helen Archer said: “Everyone would still act like it was cute, even if it came out covered in hair and with a visible caveman six-pack.
“You basically have to say nice things about how babies look, even if they’ve got lopsided ears or serial killer eyes. To do otherwise is social cyanide.
“The biggest challenges of having a Neanderthal kid would be their tendency to spear classmates – and really bad nits.”
