Embedded text or transcriptThe President's address at the British Association emphasized the strong probability of both animal and vegetable kingdom having had a common origin in a primitive organism, the Flagellate. To illustrate his point he took as examples of both kingdoms elephants and the trees of the forests through which they roam.
Well-meaning but mistaken scientist: -
"Why can't you boys patch it up? You're both from the same flagellate you know."
