‘The Yoo-Yoo Theory of Evolution’ By ajgold

The story is of a sport’s writers preparing what turns out to be his last column, explaining his involvement in the Yoo-Yoo Theory of Evolution. It is a humorous, satire of exploring the fantasy world of a fifty million years reversal cycle of our universe. Our sportswriter, who had played one year for the Yankees with his childhood Hall of Famer, attend a military academy devoted to producing pro-baseball prlayers with the son of NYC’s mayor. During their college stay, the three boys, along with the father and the professor, who is credited for making a blunder that had lead to the winning of the Battle of the Bulge, develop the theory. After writing about the foundation of the theory, our writer writes of how the father attempts to use the theory to save his son’s presidency.

The Hall of farmer is a descendant of Don Quixote, the mayor and his family are related to the parties that framed Dryfus, and of course, the writer is descended from Dryfus and is forced to be held captive on Devil’s Island. The presidency is saved by Quixote attacking the president’s enemies, in form of windmills, on horseback before the universal reversal.
