Former cartoonist for The Wichita Eagle Richard Crowson did up this cartoon in response to the discovery in 2006 of this curious beast (thought to be a "missing link" between fish and amphibians)...:

By the way, clicking on the image can make it large enough to see the dog in the lower left-hand corner which is saying "I doesn't matter. The Board made reality 'opt-in'". There's a few editorial cartoonists that used little tiny characters like that to make additional comments on the topic du jour. Pat Oliphant comes to mind. So does Tom Toles.
