Ben Van der Velde: Barbarians
‘A sharp and crafty gagsmith’ Steve Bennett, Chortle
According to scientists, every Eurasian man shares about 8% of his DNA with Genghis Khan, which makes us all part barbarian. A pretty sobering thought as you play on your iPhone whilst sipping a skinny mocha-latte.
If we really want to know about ourselves, believes Ben Van der Velde, it’s probably best to find out about great-great-great-great-great-granddad Genghis first and see how much we've actually evolved since then.
Big questions require big answers, and so long as you don't equate big with accurate, you’re in for a treat.
