Darwin's Day

Today is the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. Dr. Chris Marshall, Curator and Collector for the Oregon State Arthropod Collection, shows his appreciation for Darwin each year on Feb. 12th with some kind of nature-themed cake.

I snuck into the Zoology Department lounge to capture a picture of this year's creation... I found a tree stump made of sugar and eggs, lit afire, with a room full of brilliant minds singing to it. I wonder what Darwin would have said about this?
