Thumbity thumb thumb

I have the world's worst hangnail on my left thumb and it's very insistent about reminding me that it's there. So today, I wrapped a band-aid around it and suddenly, I lost the use of my thumb. It's amazing how hard it is to do simple tasks such as opening a bag of coffee when your thumb is incapacitated by nothing more than a band-aid. No wonder we were able to overtake monkeys as the kings (and queens) of the planets. Can we hear it for the opposable thumbs?

Meanwhile, speaking of evolutionary advances, a virgin komodo dragon is expecting.
