I finally put a few evolution-related images on a Shoppe page … just in case you need a geeky Christmas gift for somebody.

Come on, science fans, let’s stick together: all you need is a sheet of sticker paper, a printer, and a pair of scissors. Then stick these little Darwins on lunch boxes, laptops, and your friends’ backs. Or pass them out in science classes as geeky prizes for all the little barnacles. It’s his birthday. Show some love.
For all you Arabic-speaking science fans, here’s a rough translation of my Charles Darwin Has A Posse sticker for your lunch box. Sorry it’s so late … not sure you can order stickers in time for Darwin Day (February 12th), but there’s plenty of time for 2016 parties. If there’s an error in the translation, please let me know (I, um, only know how to say “hello” in Arabic).
By the way, if you’re interested in how Darwin and evolution were received in Arabic, get Reading Darwin in Arabic. Thanks to the Department of Modern Languages at Swarthmore College for the translation.
As a bonus, here’s an image courtesy the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. As part of its “Dialogues with Darwin” exhibit they had a huge wall of translations. The cover art variation was amazing.
If you need stickers for Darwin’s birthday (February 12th) I finally got the image up on Redbubble. These stickers are great for kids’ lunch boxes, skateboards, and prizes for biology class. Redbubble claims the stickers will survive 18 months outside, which is great news for those not allowed to bring evolution material inside the house. I’ll eventually put up some translated versions, too, so if you need this in Arabic, be patient.
If you’re curious, I designed this image because I wanted a way to show my fondness for evolution but thought the “evolution fish” (the standard image for science and reality fans) was a tad too offensive. More details on my Charles Darwin Has A Posse page.

Just in case you’re a fan of “Charles Darwin Has A Posse” stickers but prefer a different language, I have 12 more for you. Some might need further edits so if you are a native speaker, drop me a line about how I should change wording. Posted today because it’s Darwin Day on February 12th. If you need an image for you upcoming blog post, please feel free to embed. Original version here, where you can download a free sheet for making stickers in the privacy of your own home.
