A truly historic boot-ay.

It cannot be coincidence that a science story about a giant preserved asshole comes out today, could it? If so, best coincidence of all time!

“…researchers could see the remnants of two small bulges by its ‘back door,’ which might have housed musky scent glands…”

With this story and the one about the beaver glands I’m thinking someone at boingboing has a google alert set up for “anal glands” which, of course, is what I expect from the site that brings me things of interest on the daily.

That’s no way to talk about Mitch McConnell. He is neither perfect nor unique.

Every person who ever showed their butthole to a paleontologist is catching an awful lot of shade right now.

My thought too (shared with umpteen other people). “First preserved dinosaur butthole”? Someone tell this paleontologist about the US Senate.

I am seriously disappointed in you, pedants of BB!

18 posts in, and nobody has commented that technically a cloaca is not a “butthole” as it also contains urinary and reproductive tract openings?

Sheesh, if I can’t expect high quality butthole pedantry from BB, I’m just going to have to go to that other site featured previously in a post here (you know the one).
