Evolution Exposed

Remember the starling in our wood stove last month? Well, today there's a starling in our range hood vent pipe. Much more difficult to extract. We first heard it last night. This morning it's still in there, chirping away.

Upon hearing this morning's first chirp, half-awake Jeff, fumbling around for his Saturday morning coffee, muttered, "Stupid starlings."

I replied sympathetically, "I know! Stupid starlings..."

Waxing philosophical, Jeff went on, "This proves evolution is false."

"How so?" I asked.

"Well," Jeff responded, "If they were going to spend all that time evolving into more intelligent beings, how could they have ended up as something that dumb?!"

Seriously! And it's probably the same starling as last time!
