From PC World: “Neanderthals vs. Homo sapiens - Lessons Learned”

CNN recently reported that Neanderthals were as smart as Homo sapiens. Sure, they were as smart, but they routinely shipped their products two years after Homo sapiens did, with a minimum of usability testing. And Neanderthals depended on income from previous products, such as bowls, when fire first came out. Neanderthals' VP of Marketing freely admitted as much: “We didn't see fire coming. We were so focused on our new model of bowls, we missed fire completely.”

This is too charming for the Neandertal anti-defamation files. And yes, I’ve corrected all the species names in this; I cannot abide miscapitalization of Linnaean binomials.
