Paris Zoo Unveils Bizarre, Brainless ‘Blob’ Capable of Learning

—and Eating Oatmeal, says Smithsonian.

The Paris Zoological Park is home to some 180 species, many of which would be considered standard zoo fare: zebras, giraffes, penguins, toucans, turtles and the like. But this week, the Zoological Park will unveil a new exhibit featuring a bizarre creature that has surprised and puzzled scientists for decades. It’s formally known as Physarum polycephalum, but zoo staff have dubbed it the “blob.”

Sometimes these things just write themselves.

Daily Darwin – Social Justice Warrior Flambes Genomes

Darwin duly notes that SJW’s tend not to be the ‘brightest candles on the cake’.  He points out that this genius was a ‘few clowns short of a circus’ when he decided throwing a flaming bottle of flammables was a good idea.   One could say the SJW’s ‘logs were ablaze but the chimney was clogged’. And furthermore, Darwin says noting the cracking sounds of genomes roasting, this Social Justice Warrior was definitely ‘a few burgers short of a barbecue’.

Darwin theorizes that most of these SJW Rocket Scientists are ‘all booster and no payload’.  He says most of them ‘couldn’t hit a target with an atomic bomb’ or much less ‘blow their noses even if brains were dynamite’.  As for the genome question itself, Darwin hypothesizes that this SJW shish kebab’s ‘brother was an only child’.

Natural selection deems that some individuals serve as a warning to others. Who are we to disagree? The next generation, ever and anon, is descended from the survivors
