PROFESSOR Richard Dawkins is moving backward on the evolutionary ladder, it has emerged.
The biologist’s increasingly domed brow, protruding jaw and tendency to believe anything he sees on YouTube prove that is he regressing from Homo sapiens towards a more prehistoric form.
Professor Helen Archer said: “The last time I saw Richard was at a faculty dinner where, after we’d finished our lamb shanks, he seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time puzzling over the bone.
“But it wasn’t until I saw his tweets about that American kid’s clock thing that I realised his mental capacity had regressed to that of a hominid from the Pliocene epoch.
“The obvious explanation is that he created some kind of chemical compound that reverses evolution then, when refused further funding, decided to prove everybody wrong by testing it on himself. “
Dawkins, painted in red ochre and carrying a flint spear, said: ““Hunt bees for honey.
“Honey taste good.”
