Eyebrow Sleepy John

You'd think they would get it right.

The California Academy of Sciences has a new exhibit: going: 'Extreme Mammals'.  Extremely large, extremely hairy, extremely this and that.  

The exhibit under 'Extremely Weird': the platypus.

*facepalm*  which is a monotreme, not a mammal.

[EDIT] Oh-KAY!

I thought the egg-laying disqualified it, I forgot there was a distinction between 'placental mammals' and 'mammals with other weird hookups'.

God stepped on the beak of the poor platypus
And that's how he came to have so flat a puss.
Oh, who can imagine what it's like to be stuck
With a rear like a beaver and a front like a duck?


If that's an intelligent design, God must have been nipping at the cooking sherry while He was on the job ;)
