HOMO ERICTUS (via Tom Corcoran):

Prehistoric Julia Roberts found (Jennifer Viegas, 29 November 2004, Discovery News)

Bulgarian archaeologists have found what they claim is Europe's oldest skeleton, which they have named "Julia Roberts" because the woman was a "rare beauty" with a nearly flawless set of teeth.

But, troublingly, a pronounced Adam's apple.

Excavations at the Notting Hill archaeological site uncovered the pretty woman with a mona lisa smile in a tomb decorated with primitive steel magnolias and a crude painting of her best friend's wedding. A partially-deciphered cuneiform tablet suggests that her name may have been "Erin."

I feel very, very sorry for the men of Bulgaria if they think Julia Roberts (aka 'mooseface') is a "rare beauty". Oy veh.
