Punch,  63 (1872), 190.

Punch at Lunch  [1/8]



Notes, Drollery, Serial


Darwinism, Animal Behaviour

    A series of statements from Mr Punch to his dog, Toby. In one statement he claims that he does not 'hold with Darwinism. We are not related to the animals. See here. Among birds the hen is always the dowdy, quietly feathered, humble looking creature, while the cock (peacock and pheasant, for instance) blazes out in splendour. While among ourselves—but you perceive the argument'.
