    John Herbert is a fictional character in the animated television series Family Guy. His first name, John, was finally revealed in the episode entitled " Valentine's Day in Quahog." He is voiced by Mike Henry, who created and designed the character. Herbert is an elderly neighbor of the Griffin family who first appeared in the season 3 episode "To Love and Die in Dixie". Henry defines Herbert as a pedophile. He harbors an unrequited lust for Chris Griffin, though the Griffins and the citizens of Quahog are either oblivious to this or indifferent because of his frailty. Herbert's voice and appearance are inspired by an elderly man whom Henry met while working at a grocery store in high school. MacFarlane has also stated that his design was made so his creepy humor would seem funny. Herbert has received mixed reviews from critics. He has also appeared in various Family Guy merchandise and has made several crossover appearances in the Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The phrase "Survival of the fittest" was first coined by Herbert Spencer in his "Principles of Biology" (1864) after reading Charles Darwin's theory of "natural selection" discussed in "On the Origin of Species" by Darwin - published in the same year. Five years later, Darwin first used Spencer's new phrase "Survival of the fittest" alongside his phrase "natural selection" in his fifth edition of "On the Origin of Species", published in 1869. It's interesting to note that "fittest" is often misconstrued as either the strongest of the species or the most intelligent species, which is neither an accurate description nor the interpretation desired by Darwin in his theory. In actuality, the fittest species is the one that is the most adaptable to change. In other words, those who can become most well adapted to current environment and the changes therein, can have the chance and opportunity to survive. Darwin's theory of natural selection teaches us that it's absolutely important to welcome the change, and manage the change for survival and for becoming the winner. It's really interesting that being the most adaptable to change often outweighs the strength and intelligence factors, contrary to the common understanding of life and the phrase "Survival of the fittest.
