By the way, does anyone in the world realize?
The scariest story I ever heard as a child was when some Norwegian Peer Gynt was offered a tail (which meant he would become a troll).
In the version I heard, the troll king offered Peer his best Sunday tail but Peer was saved when his aged mother and another woman actually climbed the church belfry and set the bells ringing through all the mountain valleys.
So the trolls fled underground.
Do they sell that in a can now? No-Troll[TM]?
Seriously, the whole idea is just folklore. – O’Leary for News

So Gibber-son was trolling? 😛
Denyse O’Leary has an article up on ENV about the questions never asked of the folklore ‘tails’ about human evolution:
Why Human Evolution Happened Only Once: The Question No One Has to Answer – Denyse O’Leary – June 9, 2014
But since, as O’Leary alluded to in her article, humans are much closer to pigs than to chimps anatomically, then why didn’t Giberson use this photoshopped image instead?
And according to Wikipedia on interspecific hybrid naming conventions:
Hybrids are often named by the portmanteau method, combining the names of the two parent species. For example, a zeedonk is a cross between a zebra and a donkey. Since the traits of hybrid offspring often vary depending on which species was mother and which was father, it is traditional to use the father’s species as the first half of the portmanteau. For example, a liger is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger, while a tiglon is a cross between a male tiger and a female lion.
Therefore, to properly name this hybrid, we’d need to come up with a portmanteau that combines the first part of the male parent’s name (pig) and the second part of the female parent’s name (chimp).
In following conventional interspecific hybrid naming conventions, then, we humans can trace our ancestry all the way back to the very first pimp.

That link just goes to an incredibly lame article about the 97% supporting climat change. Nothing about tails.
