Insert Clever Title Playing on ‘Bitch’

Thomas Huxley was known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his many public defenses of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. Richard Dawkins has been labeled “Darwin’s Rottweiler“, drawing a parallel between Dawkins’s current role as a popularizer of science (and defender of reason) and Huxley’s as a public face for Darwin. All that is well and good, and you probably knew it already. But when can we start calling PZ Myers “Dawkins’s Pit Bull”?

    Why not “Darwin’s Pekinese?” :P

    “Darwin’s Architeuthis,” perhaps?

    Don’t forget Daniel Dennett, otherwise known as Dawkin’s lapdog.
