Whoa, it's like they're the ruffie-farting zombies of the termite world.


What fraternity does he belong to ?

I've known some people I think could fart you to death.

By the way, a book on flatulence was really a best-seller?

I've heard of fire farters who could burn down mobile homes and buildings, but the paralyzing death farting lacewing termite destroyers are new. But knowing scientists, they will do studies and experiments on those lacewings until they can genetically engineer ones the size of tanks that can fart endlessly then sell them to the military as organic weapons.
Oh, the humanity!

Le Pet, First the scientists would have to reengineer the termite-specific death fart. Meanwhile someone else would be updating gas masks.

@coscolo--Good point. Then scientists could genetically engineer termites that are immune to enhanced lacewing death farts. The industrial-military complex have been doing this sort of thing for decades, what could possibly go wrong?

Send the Beaded Lacewings to Washington!!!

Beaded Lacewings opened for Adam and the Ants.

Actually, "Bearded" Lacewings would be an even better name.
