And That's How Evolution Works (FF)


"And that's how evolution works, class.  To adapt to the new climate beginning in the mid-21st century, mankind rapidly evolved in a number of ways."

"That's how we used to look, Professor Goldberg?   All covered with - what did you call it - skin, and without razor sharp teeth to ferret out food?"

"Exactly, Mr. Clifford.  And those awkward appendages called legs gave way to fins for better mobility."

"Look how ugly people used to be!  How did we become so facially attractive, Professor?"

“Because, Ms. James, we needed to repopulate the planet. That's why everyone evolved to be so smokin' hot!"

"God Bless Evolution, Professor Goldberg!"

"Class dismissed.  Go to it, hotties!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I sincerely hope this post wasn't too sexually arousing for any of the other Friday Fictioneers.  I toned it down from the original more graphic version but when you have a picture prompt like the above,  toning down the sexual vibe is about as easy as getting climate change on the agenda of the Republican National Convention.

To help your mind evolve to a higher plane, click here for the offerings of the other Friday Fictioneers.  Go to it, hotties!

In the meanwhile, I'm sitting here on the internet. Waiting to evolve.

  1. Would you be offended if I said that your story was not arousing anything except laughter?

    Nice dialogues!

  2. Well, I guess you and I were born a couple of centuries too soon, Perry. Lack of hair seems to be all the rage in this crowd.

    Loved your comment about getting climate change on the agenda of the Republican National Convention. That would be an ice storm in Hades.

  3. Who knew all we needed was a bit more evolution to make us ALL smokin' hot. I'm still waiting. Another good laugh this week. Thanks, Perry.

  6. Utterly scandalized by your indecent story, Perry. I may have to close the laptop and have a cold shower. That won't go down well with the cat currently sleeping on my arm though.
    Amusing stuff with a message not so different from Doug's!!!

    1. Gee, that's high praise to be compared to Doug. I'm shocked to find out I even had a message! Thanks.

  7. Very entertaining. I do hope evolution is kind to us, as I'd really like the species to survive, in some form. Better to be a "hottie", I guess, than to die from being overheated.

    1. I think these humans of the future are hotties and many die from being way overheated. I hope I can get used to the fangs.

  8. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose. I feel less confident about the fate of the human race, though. Have you ever read the sci-fi book, Last and First Men? It's all about how humans evolve over millions of years into lots of strange things like this.

    1. The Eye of the Beholder" also the title of a classic Twilight Zone episode. Sounds like an interesting book, I'll try to check it out.

  10. LOL. Your hottie doesn't do a lot for me I have to admit but I loved the dialogue.

  11. Dear Perry,

    After Subroto's hardpore corn I have nothing left to add. Evocative piece cloaked in humor.

    Shalom,

  12. Alas, I was born too early, too, no hotties for me. Some laughter instead, thanks for the chuckle.

  13. I thought we were supposed to be warned about XXX topics!

  14. LOL :-) In my dreams, Perry, I'm a hottie. In reality, I creak out of bed in the morning, desperate for a cup of tea, and feeling as old as a dinosaur!

  15. Hotties? You wouldn't be one of those science inclined climate warming believers, now would you?

    Good one, Tay.
