One week until...

the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birthday. We're taking it very seriously in the sciences. To wit:

Darwin Day Celebration
When: Friday, February 13 @ 3pm (directly
following the biology seminar at 2pm)
Where: Science Room 175
What: Darwin’s Birthday Cake Competition

In honor of Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday the Biology Department will be holding a cake competition.

Any group or individual may compete. Cakes must reflect some aspect of Darwin’s work. Prizes will be awarded for creativity, execution, and taste!

(Cakes can be delivered to the biology department office for safekeeping)

Hope to see you there!

I am flattered to have been invited to serve as a judge for this celebratory event. That means I'll have to taste each cake. I have it on good authority that Mr. Darwin himself may make an appearance. I sincerely hope that the geology students consider making an entry in this fun contest. Do us proud.

Did I mention that there will be cake? Homer Simpson, eat your heart out.
