APHIDS! APHIDS!

Fuck the war in Iraq, we've got bigger problems here.

Aphid eaters.

As the Post reports, no one is safe from this menace and/or its devastating effects. "One ladybug stained a new pink blouse, and another left its yellow mark on a lampshade, LeMarr's wife, Susan, said." That's right, not just any blouse, a new blouse. That was pink.

"How the bugs got here is unclear, but the best guess, Day said, is that they hitched a ride on cargo ships or escaped from U.S. Department of Agriculture experimental fields, a charge the agency denies."

I already have visions of what these so-called "experimental fields" look like. I'm dying to go see them...

On PBS last night, there was a documentary on invasive species. A government labratory crossbred ordinary honeybees with killer African bees (I don't remember why), and a number of the crossbred bees escaped. It turns out that the crossbred bees travel in swarms and have a nasty habit of attacking humans. They're sticking around the Southwest right now, but they're spreading.

Don't Unicorns eat Corn on the cob ?
It is probably not wise to have the two in the same pict as each other

I don't think they eat EVIL corn on the cob, which is what I googled to find that picture (not even kidding).
