UK scientists recreated Neanderthal man, who looks just like Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris or Neanderthal? Or all of the above?
A team of scientists has created what it believes is the first really accurate reconstruction of Neanderthal man, from a skeleton that was discovered in France over a century ago.

In 1909, excavations at La Ferrassie cave in the Dordogne unearthed the remains of a group of Neanderthals. One of the skeletons in that group was that of an adult male, given the name La Ferrassie 1.

  1. Actually, he looks very French. Possibly the first cheese-eating surrender monkey?

  2. I thought blond hair was a more recent, northern european evolutionary attribute. I doubt that a French Neanderthal was blond.

    1. Sorry, you'd be wrong, genetic tests from quite a few years back now show Neanderthals had a mutation in the mc1r receptor, which gave them red hair and fair skin.

      Additionally, we are talking about a fairly cold climate at the period, with much of Europe covered by ice sheets.

  3. Give this a moment... I think he looks like a neglected Kevin Spacey.

  5. Can't be French. He (it is a he, right?) doesn't have a cigarette dangling from the lips.

  6. Supports the much debunked theory that Neanderthals are still alive and present in Europe.

  9. Thank goodness we kidnapped a baby and taught it to be a martial master, so that our race could prevail over a physically overpowering species. Fight fire with fire, humans prevail.

  10. Hypothetical What If: What if this is literally a teaming human matrix and Chuck Norris is Neo from the underground neanderthal world of Zion?

    Wouldn't this make Chuck Norris a NEOnderthal?
