Meet the Diabolical Ironclad Beetle. It’s Almost Uncrushable.

(Thanks to Steve K., who says he saw them open for Iron Butterfly.)

Just minute ado, I knocked down a wasp nest full of wasps. Like dozens and dozens of live wasps. I sprayed, then crushed the nest and dozens of wasps with my broom as they laughed. I'm lucky to be alive.

I made sure to let mrs. man tom know of the perils I faced. Now she thinks I am a courageous hero amongst men. I'll probably flex my muscles her way later to remind her.

The ever-reclusive sixth Beatle.

Well, it does look sort of like Tommy Moore (very obscure Beatles reference).

Oh, THOSE bugs. They have been around for many a long year. Married men generally refer to them as mother-in-law beetles. They can survive anything. They are like Timex watches, they can take a licking and keep on ticking. Or possibly the Energizer bunny, they just keep going and going and going... Some claim playing Manilow music drives them away, but no one I know is cold-blooded enough to find out if this is true or not.

Obviously the squirrels are preparing to steal cars.

I wonder how they'd do in the Japanese cockroach sticky traps that are disguised as cute little houses.

"Yeah, it's still alive. It's playing dead. But it's still alive."

Reminds me of some girls I dated.
