Using your imagination...

A fellow blogger has begun collecting Darwinian stories, if she keeps at it long enough I suspect that she'll find an evolutionary story similar to "How the red squirrel secured its nuts." fit to any set of empirical observations about squirrels, even if they contradict each other.

Evolutionary stories can be imagined in order to explain how the squirrel lost its nuts or gained its nuts, why the squirrel went nuts or didn't go nuts, and even why the squirrel has big nuts.
