In the past ten years, a successful attempt to sequence the genome of Neanderthals revealed that most modern humans carry 2-4% Neanderthal DNA, indicating our human ancestors bred with their ancient cousins.
Further scientific research into a finger bone discovered in Siberia uncovered a whole new group of archaic humans we now refer to as Denisovans. Once again, DNA comparisons with humans revealed that the two species on occasion made the beast with two backs.
Additional investigation of human DNA found remnants of other hominim species completely unknown to scientists.
These findings have led scientists to conclude that our human ancestors had no misgivings about mating with anything that looked vaguely human.
Then along came Dennis, a “modern human” who seems to carry many genetic features derived from our ancient past.
“I came to the attention of scientists when I sent off a 23 and Me sample. It came back showing that roughly 18% of my DNA could be traced back to Neanderthals, Denisovans, and a vast array of other unknown ancient hominims. This knowledge really began to answer a lot of questions for me.”
Police records reveal a man who’s been arrested on multiple occasions for trying to hump museum statues and department store mannequins.
Out at the bars, he often tries to attract prospective females with a strange ritual of chest thumping, growling and throwing dirt around. Additionally, he’s been known to lay the remains of a half eaten steak at the feet of a female he’s particularly fond of.
Hypnotic regression therapy is helping Dennis confront some of his primitive impulses.
“I carry within me the knowledge of what it’s like to copulate with a Denisovan. They lived around 500,000 years ago. Let me tell you, sex with a Denisovan is a pretty wild experience. Far from sharing a tender and loving moment, it’s savage and brutal, quite terrifying really. Some of the females have been known to kill the male after the act.”
These deep memories of a time long ago have left Dennis psychologically scarred but hopeful for the future.
“I’m currently in psychotherapy which seems to be helping. I’m also in a pretty committed relationship with a female that carries an unusually high amount of Neanderthal DNA. I think she gets me.”
