Swamp Men


And out of the inhospitable and primeval soup of the sea rose the first primitive life. Proof that Darwin and Wallace were right! The first fish crawled onto the shores right here in England. Here in the mud they evolved simple flippers for prising oysters off the rocks to eat… And then as they progressed further up the shores and onto the beaches, these flippers evolved into hands needed for operating the penny slot machines and eating the chips they found at the seaside.
