Sounds like Ted's mullet!

My fiance's pet name for me is "Rootworm". Should I be offended?

I would like to thank my parents, my agent, and God for giving me the talent to be first.
Neener!

Funny Name, you are to be congratulated, not only first but witty as h_ll!!

First Ted Hobbit-Grabber now this.

Assefa Gebre-Amlak - Crop Protection Agent

You Midwesterners are so funny.

BigD, my suggestion is that Assefa Gebre-Amlak isn't a full blooded midwesterner. Just a guess.

Thanks, Casey!

I want the band t-shirt.

I have got an even better one, I think.
What do you all think of this:(if anybody uses it, I will personally come to your house and give you an atomic wedgie!)
The Wannabeez!

P.S.--This may not be the final spelling. Any other spelling is included in my threat detailed above.

BigD,

I laughed out loud at hobbit-grabber! Fortunately, people in my office are crazy as loons, so it didn't appear out of place.

I know this sounds funny, but I'm sorry, there's nothing funny about a rootworm infestation. Unless, of course, it happens in Michael Jackson's nose or something.

casey...if he means what i think he means...isn't
it a complement (kinda);)

bleah. but good name for ...And now, root cornworm on bass, give it up for rootie, y'all..

A johnson-biting turtle - my worst nightmare!

Dave is blogging from Palt Pisney Porld at 11:13 AM? What's he doing? Waiting in line for Pission to Pars?

Rootworm, corn borer, weevils and other pests cost farmers tons (or tonnes) of money each year in pesticide purchases and lost income due to crop damage. This is very depressing. But YOU can help cheer me up by nominating people who deserve crop pest infestations in various body cavities. I already nominated Michael Jackson and his nose. Anybody else up to the challenge?

Anybody?

Am I really that boring? (oops! accidental pun)

A.N. -

No, you're not ... boring, or uninteresting ... in any context ...

Whenever I see/hear about insect/crop problems, I recall the time I spent $7,000 to spray for Sunflower Head Moth (take that one wherever you like, C'bol ...) and a week later a huge wind knocked down the whole field, and I had to call it a total loss ... then the insurance guy said, "Sorry, you're not covered ..."

I am not making this up.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the depressing aspects of a career in agricultural food production ...

Been there, done that, puked on the T-shirt ... many times ...
