Designing Design

Okay, this is just cute:

"There have been 23 elephant-like animals in history, and yet only two survive today (and we add, they're not doing very well). Clearly, this is the mark of an all-powerful creator who is stuck on the same stupid idea and can't figure out why the hell they keep dying off. Hmm, perhaps it's because giant, big-eared mammals with huge, prehensile noses are ridiculous? I mean, WTF? A giant, powerful, grasping... nose? It looks like something a preschooler would make up."

You know how there are some people who think there is a good Designer and an evil Designer and I wondered which one was responsible for inept design in the world? Now maybe we need to posit a third Designer, who we could call the Dusfus Designer. As RaulVB at Daily Kos points out, the DD would have a tailor-made spokesperson who just happens to be between jobs ...

I once thought of taking all the evidence for evolution and re-working as the argument for Dumb-Ass Design, or DAD, theory. Maybe my time has arrived!
Deficient Underachieving Designer?
Definitely Atrocious Designer?
Some people have argued that it is better to exist than to not exist. It has also been argued that existence is futile.

Logically, there must be some entity that is the example of maximal futility. There must have been a maximally incompetent designer.
