    I have the weirdest boner right now

  2. Lemoutan says:

    Would today’s world be noticeably different had these turtles been productive? Would our planet now be dominated by lizard-people?

  3. This observation is the true smoking…

    Doesn’t look like any of them got to the smoking stage.

    Hey, they didn’t die of venereal disease.

    For the first few millennia of creation, God was able to keep Himself amused by smiting turtles for their sinful, lust-ridden ways, but eventually the novelty wore off and He had to create Man in order to give Himself something new to do.

    This should be made a part of every self-respecting abstinence-only sex-ed program.

    Way to go turtles!

    That’s how I want to go!  Except. . . of course. . .  not with a turtle. . .

    The observation that “the turtles didn’t notice…” is pure supposition.  It is equally likely that two turtles found they were sinking in a bog full of toxic gas and decided to make the most of their last moments.

    Seriously, turtles are the randiest animals on earth. We have a lot of Eastern box turtles in our neighborhood, and more often than not whenever you come across them, their “paired.” Also: I once took the kids the the zoo, and I’ll tell you, when those Galapagos tortoises get it on….

    I’m only surprised that most of the turtle fossils found aren’t like this!

    When I come back, I want to be a turtle. No problem finding housing, live for a 100 years or so, and spend the majority of that time doing the dirty. I mean, what’s the downside?

    They died doing what they loved… True Turtle Power…

    I read the headline as “Turtles as a whole committed turtle murder, and here is a fossil of such a murder in progress”.

    “It seemed like a good idea at the time…”

    There were never any better recipients of the Darwin Award.
