    Maybe you can shed some light on this, Wombat-socho .  I’m sure that the boffins would appreciate the help.

     Ah, you’re a cruel man to stir up the memories of my beloved ancestors. There were giants in those days.

     Climate change and human hunting got ’em, it says.

    Even on stories about ancient extinctions, media has to work in a ban-SUVs-and-hunting angle.

    No offense, but if I saw a rhinoceros-sized wombat with a 28-inch jaw, I’d probably start shooting before he got close, too. 

    From the roof of my SUV. 

    With the motor running.

     Of course, whenever there is a “mass grave,” foul play must be expected.  I don’t think a dingo got those wombats.

     Worse. LIZARDS. Charles Johnson must pay for the sins of his ancestors!

    Smitty: I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!
