Evolution of the Species

The other day I saw a car with two interesting bumper stickers. On the left side was one of those Darwin fishes. The driver was obviously a disciple of Evolution and its chief mechanism, Natural Selection. Not too uncommon, especially in Seattle. However, on the right side of the bumper was a sticker that said: “Proud parent of a German Shepherd.”

Now, cleverer people than me can probably come up with some really pithy quip about the driver thinking having a dog-child is somehow evolving, but I cannot come up with anything remotely good. In fact, I’m just so overwhelmed by the inconsistency and weirdness of the two signs that I’m boggled beyond use.

  1. Maybe her child is a Shepard that happens to do their sheparding in Germany. I hear German wool is actually known for its high quality, that is something for a mother to be proud of.
