Humbug





    Two boys once thought to play a trick on Charles Darwin. They took the body of a centipede, the wings of a butterfly, the legs of a grasshopper and the head of a beetle, and glued these together to form a weird monster. With the composite creature in a box, they visited Darwin.

    "Please, sir, will you tell us what sort of a bug this is?" the spokesman asked.

    The naturalist gave a short glance at the exhibit and a long glance at the boys.

    "Did it hum?" he inquired solemnly.

    The boys replied enthusiastically, in one voice:

    "Oh, yes, sir."

    "Well, then," Darwin declared, "it is a humbug."
