A bit of light reading...

I've always found this phrase amusing and this little doodle found its way into my sketchbook today. A bit of research followed and I was interested to find that it relates to the Scopes Trial in the US, where a teacher was tried for violating the Butler Act (which made it illegal "to teach any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals" in any Tennessee state-funded school and university).
