A shirt depicting the evolution of a high school marching band with a Darwinian twist gets drummed out of school.
Officials at a high school in Missouri have banned students from wearing a T-shirt designed for the school marching band. The shirt, which shows the iconic representation of the evolution of man, has some Smith-Cotton High School parents in a tizzy.
The idea for the image was inspired by the band's theme for the school year, "Brass Evolutions." Each member on the evolution scale is holding a brass musical instrument.
The designer of the shirt is perplexed. "It was just a play on words. Who knew this was going to blow up like this?"
