I’ve got a humour piece at McSweeney’s today in celebration of Darwin’s 200th. Here’s a snippet:
Joins the Ice Capades: Darwin is hired for small part in a Lion King-themed ice show. Takes skating lessons and practices hard. Soon nails both the triple axel and the triple lutz. Is fired from the show when he tests positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
My favourite bit is actually the part about losing his mind, and you can read the rest at McSweeney’s and maybe (if you’re so inclined) try to come up with a few yourself in the comments below.
