My friend, Sara, sent me two Yellow Ibis t-shirts so I could postpone, by a couple more days, that long and lonely trudge through ten foot high snowdrifts to the laundromat. Yellow Ibis is a small company that sells science-based products such as mugs, engravings, prints and t-shirts. The shirt that I am wearing today is light blue with Darwin’s “I Think” Tree of Life on it. This tree is copied from the first one ever drawn by Darwin (pictured) in his notebook, Transmutation.
As I see it, this shirt is essential apparel for any practicing evolutionary biologist. I am anticipating that PZ will be sent two dozen of these by his flock of faithful readers in honor of his hatchday celebration.
Disclaimers: I do not get paid anything to say nice things about this, or anything else, on my blog. I did get two free shirts out of this deal, but in another (employed) life, I would happily buy these shirts, just so I could have Darwin’s Tree of Life plastered across my chest (a shirt is cheaper than a tattoo).
