Remember the latest Paluxy River hoax set of a dinosaur print and human print in the same stone?  (See “Fred Flintstone waded here.”)

(I saw “South Pacific” on stage last week.  I have visions of Bloody Mary selling these things.  Much cheaper than a shrunken head, but the shrunken heads are real.)

Open your own “creation evidences museum.”  Ken Ham needs the competition.
