National Geographic asked former Project Runway contestants to design clothes for Wilma, a reconstruction of a Neanderthal woman. The clothes are cute, but the comments from readers are the real treat. From one prehistoric Michael Kors: "Um, hello, how is Wilma gonna get her hair to do what Blayne and Terri want it to?" From another, in response: "All she would have to do is use some fish bones or animal rib bones to comb it down, add some animal fat to control the frizz, pull it back and tie it with a piece of leather for Blayne's look." That would be Tresemmé animal fat, right? [Pop Omnivore]
