doug skinner to appear in london at ucon06

I just got word that our friend, Mr. Doug Skinner, will be lecturing on “Evolution and Pop Culture” in London this weekend at the “Fortean TimesUnConvention (UnCon06).

According to Doug, the material he will be presenting will cover “the cultural impact of the Scopes trial, the evolution of the caveman cartoon, bioluminescent pterodactyls in the Bible, and much more.” (If I had the money, I’d be there in a minute.)

Once it’s all over, I’ll see if Doug might be able to share a few images and perhaps an anecdote or two here at

(note: The image featured here is one of the few that Google delivers when one does an image search on “Doug Skinner.” Doug, you might be interested to know, has never come to me in this form.)

    I always pictured him being a single-horned octopus.

    What would you call an octopus with one horn anyway? Would it be a unipus, or an octiunipus?
