Next thing you know the chick reptiles would only want to date male reptiles that looked like Dylan from 90210 (or, I suppose, if the chicks were dyke-reptiles they would want to date another chick reptile that had k.d. lang's hairdo).
Don't you see? If reptiles had hair, they would be as bad off as we egotistical humans--or maybe even worse. It's bad enough that they are already starring in TV commercials selling car insurance. Let's leave it at that.
And as for the handlebar mustache: do we really need a Salvador Dali or 'Village People'-lookin' reptile crawling around on the face of the earth?
I suppose asking why reptiles don't have hair is akin to asking why humans don't have webbed feet (well, most of us, anyway)...
I have no idea what I'm writing at this point; I'm driving on fumes.
Good night everyone==and thank you for this incredible blog!!!!
