If the Onion Says it, You Can Take it to the Bank


This just in from The Onion:

DAYTON, TN—A steady stream of devoted evolutionists continued to gather in this small Tennessee town today to witness what many believe is an image of Charles Darwin—author of The Origin Of Species and founder of the modern evolutionary movement—made manifest on a concrete wall in downtown Dayton.

“I brought my baby to touch the wall, so that the power of Darwin can purify her genetic makeup of undesirable inherited traits,” said Darlene Freiberg, one among a growing crowd assembled here to see the mysterious stain, which appeared last Monday on one side of the Rhea County Courthouse. The building was also the location of the famed “Scopes Monkey Trial” and is widely considered one of Darwinism’s holiest sites. “Forgive me, O Charles, for ever doubting your Divine Evolution. After seeing this miracle of limestone pigmentation with my own eyes, my faith in empirical reasoning will never again be tested.”

Garison Keillor, on Friday’s Writer’s Almanac, quoted P. J. O’Roark, who said

Parody [is] when you make fun of people smarter than you and satire [is] when you make fun of people richer than you.

    I am adopted and don’t have that luxury . I’ll just have to live with my unknown, undesirable, genetic, traits
