A 425-million-year-old fossil found in Herefordshire, England, may be the oldest record of an animal that is unarguably male. Scientists report Friday in the journal Science that the tiny crustacean, only two-tenths of an inch long, had an unmistakable penis. In their paper, the scientists name the creature Colymbosathon ecplecticos, which they say means swimmer with a large penis.

Who says the NY Times doesn't have a sense of humor?

Yeah, I think that's all for tonight, kids. Slow day. Or, at least, slow for Billyhank, as the Henry Weinhard's has landed fairly heavily this evening and I've got a piece of fake chicken roasting away. I should be either in bed or screaming at a news crew in the rain by 9:30.

Have yerself some fun, y'all.

p.s. Warren's doing some fun stuff with futurephone blogging over @ diepunyhumans. You should go look, and laugh, and blah, blah, blah.
