Sometimes nature is so beautiful. Other times, well, we get this:

The wolffish is actually modeled after evolution’s cousin Frank. Evolution has always secretly hated its cousin Frank.

So evolution made a blue-tongued skink. What are you going to do, fire it? Yeah, good luck finding anyone else with 170 million years of skink-management experience, assholes. 

“Everyone’s making fun of that fiddler crab I made. They think it looks weird.”“Aw, evolution, I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m sure they’re just deeply insecure about their own appearance.”“They’re assholes. I’ll show them.”“Whoa, hang on. What are you doing?”“See how you like the hairy crab, you ungrateful bipedal jerks.”

“Uuuurrrnnnggghhhhhh.” “You feeling okay, evolution?” “I feel awful. I think I partied a little too hard last night. I have got to stop doing that.” “Well, yeah, you’re not exactly 21 million years old anymore. Here, have an aspirin.” “Thanks. I just wish I remembered what I — oh. Oh no.” “What?” “I think I may have made some animals last night.” “Oh, I’m sure you didn’t.” “Then why do I have ‘variable neon slug’ written on my hand? Oh god, what does that even mean?” “Just get some rest, okay? I’m sure you can sort it out later.” “This is so embarrassing.”
