When I first read the Jesse Bering column that Chris Clarke parodied the hell out of, it took me a few minutes to decide whether it was for real. I mean, I vaguely recall having read some dumb stuff from him before, and I guess I knew in the abstract that there were people who come off like a fundamentalist combination of Freud and Darwin, but I couldn’t say I’d ever encountered one in the wild. Maybe he was being at least somewhat tongue-in-cheek?

Anyway, yeah, if there were any doubts, they’re gone now.
