Monkey Business


Teacher John Scopes was convicted of teaching evolution on this date 83 years ago. Jeffy, Joey, and Jamie are here with us to commemorate that historic backward step. Darwin, by the way, got mentioned in Daria.

"Darwin's the monkey guy, right? I like monkeys."

—Kevin Thompson, "The Old and the Beautiful"

Also, Ernest Hemingway was born this date 109 years ago. He, too, got mentioned in Daria.

"Now remember, your Hemingway essays are due in one week. And this time, Stacy, it's Ernest, not Mariel."

—Mr. O'Neill, "Daria Dance Party"

Here in Kansas, people do not evolve. Instead, they are designed and intelligence is not a critical part of the process. Cases in point, my neighbor and his wife. He believes Barak Obama is a muslim and his wife believes Elvis is still alive and living in Kalamazoo, Michigan...

Well, that's all baloney, because I'm Elvis.

Actually, everybody is Elvis. With the exception of Michael J. Fox, of course.

And don't forget the Elvis channelers. And the keepers of his holy relics, naturally. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Then the doubters will tremble in fear.
