Just-A-Minute

According to an Ohio University study headed by Molly Morris, associate professor of biological studies, there may be hope for the less-than-perfect male. The latest research with swordtail fish reveals that as female swordtail fish mature, so does a preference for males with asymmetrical markings. In previous research, females were shown to prefer symmetrical markings when presented with a choice. Contrary to evolutionary doctrine, which claims symmetry is a sign of superior genetic fitness, these females opted for the less-than-perfect. Since I belong to the very less-than-perfect class of males, I find a more than a little comfort in this latest evidence that stands evolution on its head. Fortunately my time for attracting females has long since past. This is Just-A-Minute.
