Darwin’s Valentine

by Greg Mayer

I was given this by a colleague in the university cafeteria today.

I don’t know where the original came from, but I like to think it was recently found among the papers of Emma Darwin.

[JAC: It would be even better if it said “I naturally select you”!]

    Or “Naturally, I select you.”

    Or “I select you. Naturally.”

    Maybe too risqué and outré; “I sexually select you”?

      Would you care to increase the frequency of our alleles?

        That’s the most evolutionary come-on I’ve ever heard.

          As Darwin married his cousin, the amount of selection was rather limited.

    Last year I made a similar VD card for the wife that said ‘I select you, naturally!’. I stole it off the internet, I am sure.

    “Here’s a sexual display for you.”

    True, but not the way to actually do it.

    Oh sure, *artificial selection*, by a sentient being! Just what Ken Ham has been saying!

    This sort of thing leads to reproductive fitness workouts.

    Clearly that’s artificial selection.
