Second Annual Upchucky Awards Announced!
The National Center for Science Education presents:
Which creationist made us toss our cookies?
As constant as the northern wind, as tenacious as an underfed Chihuahua, as aggravating as a little brother with a squirt gun, creationists across our fair land continue to annoy and appall. They push pseudo-science in America’s classrooms, textbooks, and curriculum. But which creationist was the most annoying and appalling?
It’s a hard call. But at DontDissDarwin Central, making hard calls is what we do.
To recognize the year’s most cringe-inspiring creationist, we’ve intelligently designed the UpChucky Award. The UpChucky is bestowed upon that person or organization who persists in denying evolution despite a blizzard of empirical evidence. This tiara of temerity, this garland of gagacity, this diadem of dunderheadedness, isn’t awarded to just any Darwin doubter. The UpChucky is bestowed on that one creationist whose efforts in the preceding year would inspire Darwin (or any rational person) to “drive the porcelain bus”.
