Happy 200, Mr Darwin

"The way he brought us up is shown by the story of Leo on the sofa which my father was fond of telling; it being forbidden to jump on the sofa for the sake of the springs, my father came in & found Leo dancing about & said 'Oh Lenny Lenny [it's] against all rules' to which Leo 'Then I think you'd better go out of the room.'"

- Francis Darwin

My favourite Darwin/ evolution t-shirt remains the rather spiffy black one that has a white outline of a fish with legs and the words "We win: we have the fossils".
