Evolution in YOUR face - or why all orcs look alike

"We found very strong support for the idea that as species live in larger groups, their faces become more simple, more plain," said lead author Sharlene Santana." (interesting article)
 Because orcs are every-freaking-where there must be billions of them and hence, they all look alike.

Check out REAPER MINIS!!! Shameless plug for we love them so!

Speaking of orc evolution, and being a huge fan of pig-faced orcs.

Long ago the ancients/outer gods/aliens/whatever floats your boat performed genetic experimentation on various animals. One success was creating huminoid laborers and soldiers from pigs. Eventually, as always happens, the experiments overthrew their masters. Over the ages these porcine mutants have been called pig-men, oinkers, and porkers which got shorten to orks. Which in today's alphabet as we all know is spelled orc!

LOL Okay, that just rocks. That's like something from an old Kamandi comic book. Nice word evolution as well!
