Too much seriousness going on out there today, so for a while let’s talk about what we’re being told might be the first gay caveman:
The male body â€“ said to date back to between 2900-2500BC â€“ was discovered buried in a way normally reserved only for women of the Corded Ware culture in the Copper Age.
The skeleton was found in a Prague suburb in the Czech Republic with its head pointing eastwards and surrounded by domestic jugs, rituals only previously seen in female graves.
“From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake,” said lead archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova.
“Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual,” she added.
Another dead giveaway — and sort of a bonus discovery — was that he was clutching the world’s oldest Cher CD.
The man is believed to have lived during a period of world history that scientists refer to as the Minnelli Epoch.
