Scientists slowly reintroducing group of normal, well-adjusted humans into American society

In an ambitious attempt to revive a population long considered to be on the brink of extinction, scientists announced Friday they have slowly begun to reintroduce normal, well-adjusted human beings back into society.

According to officials at Cornell University, where for the past 18 years conservation researchers have operated an enclosed sanctuary for humans who are levelheaded and make it a habit to think before they speak, the endangered group is being cautiously reintegrated into select locations nationwide in hopes that they can reestablish permanent communities and one day thrive again.

“We’ve worked for years to stabilize our society’s dwindling population of sane, generally reasonable people, and within the safe confines of our refuge we’ve finally seen their numbers start to bounce back a little,” said Josh Adelson, head of the Cornell research team, which moved the remaining members of the group into a protected habitat in 1998 to keep them from dying off completely. “Now, we can very gradually begin to release this rare breed of rational humans back into the general public. With luck, they can survive and prosper…”

Prior to the conservation efforts, it is believed that even-tempered people with sound judgment and the ability to put the needs of others before themselves had dwindled to less than 150 within the country’s borders, and had gone completely extinct in the nation’s businesses and civic institutions. Experts widely agree that without isolation, protection, and captive-breeding programs, the remaining thoughtful, foresighted individuals would have been totally wiped out…

Though researchers have expressed cautious optimism for the reintroduction program, many leading scientists have noted that the number of areas in the U.S. capable of sustaining well-adjusted humans has drastically decreased. According to experts, there is almost no chance the population will ever thrive again anywhere in the state of Florida…

Top researchers confirmed that it was already far too late to halt the country’s dominant breed of humans — assholes — from spreading uncontrollably to every region on earth.

Gotta love the Onion.

    Unfortunately, it’s really hard to breed reasonable people – in the wild or in captivity, they start thinking things like that, can we afford another kid? shouldn’t we finish college first? shouldn’t we use protection to avoid any accidents or STD’s?

    Too bad they didn’t have more female scientists involved in this endeavor because if that photo is any indication of the results, the population is doomed. No woman will mate with a pasty white, bearded plaid thing outside of Portland, Oregon. And most of us inside city limits are pretty uninspired by it, too.
