    My guess is the primitive dimwits lasted longer than we will.

    Not that we’ve actually evolved all that much in the meantime

    @Larry Israel

    They were obviously just figuring out how to spell way back then.

    Actually that’s what I saw the first time too. On second look I saw that the A was really PI. Had to look a few times before I saw the extra P…lol

    “Darwin Descending” by Russell Edson
    Do you believe in evolution, oh, thing of easy answers?
    Do you believe Darwin was descended from a thing more jaw than head?

    … Imagine an early Darwin roving the trees, nostalgic for the future

    A female Darwin slaps him on the back of his small, but promising
    head; whatcha thinking about, ya brainless brute? she peeps.
    I was just wondering about the origin of species, he twitters.
    You haven’t the brains of a modern chimpanzee, she screeches.
    Yeah, but I think that’s where I’m evolving; a large-brained primate
    with an opposable thumb, with which I shall oppose all of nature,
    twitters Darwin.
    Oh, stop it, you’re hardly on to tools; why, you haven’t even fooled
    with fire yet, she hoots.
    Yeah, but one day, Darwinette, I’m gonna talk good, and even learn
    how to write talking with a fountain pen …
    Promises, promises …

    But, as we all know, Darwin did descend.
    It was at a cocktail party, and he had been roving the upstairs halls
    looking for the indoor plumbing.
    And now he was returning via the carpeted stairway.
    Everyone turned and applauded: look, the descent of Darwin!

    Sorry, someone has to say it. “Reasoning taxes the Libs abilities.” [Dodging verbal rocks now]
