Apparently global warming wasn't the only thing on CNN host Jonathan Mann's mind when announced that humans had "hunted the dildo into extinction" during segment last week.


A recent study by Professor John Wiens of the University of Arizona found that the speed of climate change was putting species at risk for extinction because adaptations from evolutionary change happed far too slowly.

While speaking to a guest in Tucson about the study, Mann mentioned one species that viewers probably did not expect.

"Now extinctions, I don't have to tell you, have been a part of the history of the world for millenia," the CNN host explained. "And man-made extinctions have even happened before."

"I guess we hunted the dildo into extinction," he added, immediately sensing something had gone wrong. "Um, but, the Dodo, rather."

"Forgive me, I'm having trouble with my words today."
