Today’s hilarity isn’t specifically design-related, but it is most definitely related to the nasty reactions we all get to badly-received innovations. Sometimes, people just hate what you do because it’s different, it takes them out of their happy place, or just makes them uncomfortable in general.

Here we have Mr. Richard Dawkins, well-known evolutionary biologist who’s caused ire among the Intelligent Design and Creationist sets, reading some of his hate mail aloud to us. Watch and giggle. There’s a lot of coarse language if your ears are dainty and fragile like blossoms.
