"Hey, evolution, you seem like you’re feeling better. That’s a pretty red bug you’re making there.”
"Oh, thanks. It’s a flatid leaf bug."
"I like the shape. And that’s a lovely shade of red."
"I picked it myself."
"That’s a weird fuzzy branch it’s crawling on, though, huh?"
"What? No. Those are the babies."
"I’m sorry?"
"Babies. Dozens of creepy, squirmy, waxy, fringy babies.”
"… you are so weird.”

"I miss dinosaurs."
"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."
"But I miss them.”
"You turned them into birds, remember? It was the best you could do, given the circumstances.”
"It’s not the same."
"I know. I’m sorry."
"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"
"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."
"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"
"Yeah, that sounds better."
"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"
"I don’t see why not."
"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”
"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."
"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."
"You got it, evolution. Anytime."
