Best Story Idea

Over lunch yesterday, the Web Team was discussing the Paleo Diet. We concluded that it must be b*ll*cks as our fruit, vegetables and animals in no way resemble the ones our prehistoric ancestors would have consumed.

"They'll have to eat frozen mammoth," my boss said. So I related the story of the explorers who excavated a mammoth carcase from the Arctic ice and, when the flesh began to decompose, fed it to their sled dogs.

My boss, who has strong views on food hygiene, was horrified. "The dogs would mutate!" he protested. "They'd grow tusks!"

...yes!
