Everyone remembers Utah state senator Chris Buttars, who pushed the “divine design” legislation last year? Looks like someone else remembers him also…

Sen. Chris Buttars, R-West Jordan, left, and Lee Gardner, Salt Lake County assessor, are oblivious to the fact that they are being stalked by an extinct dodo roaming between the East and West Capitol buildings on Monday. The dodo visited the state Legislature to drum up interest for the documentary film “Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus.” The local showing is sponsored by the Salt Lake City Film Center and Utah Museum of Natural History. It will be be shown at 7 tonight at the Rose Wagner Center. (Al Hartmann/The Salt Lake Tribune)

What’s wrong with teaching Divine Design? Most students would find it more interesting than biology.

What’s wrong with teaching coitus? Most students would find it more interesting than math.

Poor Utah museum. I’m sure they get lots of flak. Same with just about any natural museum in the South, though, and I would know.

I cant believe people dont understand the difference between belief and thought. ‘I dont believe in evolution’ means nothing. Personally, I think most southerners should not be allowed to speak in public, too much heat and sun burns the mind…

Ah, Buttars.

I wonder if he’ll be harassed by any interesting mascots over his obsession with straight-gay alliances in schools:
