    Sorry, but I refuse to support those of you that lack the backbone to stand up for what is right.

    But why are there two molluscs represented, and only one arthropod?

    And what’s that clade-traitor echinoderm doing there?

    It’s a must-have for every biologist feeling oppressed by the vertebrate hegemony.

    Not sure if this had been done before… but…

    Copepods are too hard to draw.

    Why, representin’ for the Ambulacraria, one presumes. Not just invertebrates, but proud of it over there on that branch.

    Stop. Biologists are privileged vertebrates. They can be allies, but they shouldn’t pretend like they *get* it.

    Do you think there could be a sufficient combination of inducements and appeals to Deuteurostomic solidarity, that could peel them off back to our side?

    What about virologists! I detect a hint of lifeism here! :)

    You just need a new definition for “life”. How hard could it be? What with all the options already floating about out there….

    I’m a hard core (some of my students would say hard ass) physics teacher, and I want one!

    Physics: messing up students’ minds since Archimedes.

    Invertebrate diplomacy seldom avoids war because spineless pacifism cannot rear its ugly head.

    Besides, It takes jaws to jaw jaw

    Showed it to a friend and he was disappointed that beetles weren’t represented. I think he was recalling Haldane’s comment.
