6 May 2013. Sergei Yolkin’s World. Right After the Permian Extinction

Right After the Permian Extinction

Sergei Yolkin

2013

******

This is a typical Yolkin play on words and current events. Perm, of course, is a city in the Urals. The Permian Extinction was caused by a massive meteor strike, and there was a meteorite strike in Chelyabinsk (which is relatively-close to Perm) earlier this year. Put together the meteor events and the fact that “Perm” and “Permian” are close homonyms, along with Yolkin’s irrepressible sense of irony and humour, and, voilà, you get the above caricature. Another “score” for Yolkin, I say…

Scientists believe that the four-legged reptile that became the ancestor of dinosaurs, birds, and crocodiles began to populate the earth after the great Permian extinction. Here’s how it all seemed to Sergei Yolkin.

The BBC reported that an Australian crocodile named Elvis took a lawnmower from the employees of the natural park where he lives, as it irritated him with its noise.
