How cockroaches came to rule the world

In the '80s when I lived in Galveston, our apartment started having the little German cockroaches. Soon afterward, the invasive Mediterranean geckos arrived. My wife "accidentally" let one of the geckos in. It took up residence under the refrigerator. Two weeks later, we no longer had a cockroach problem.

A couple of months later, I read in the paper that people were capturing the geckos and selling them in New York for $5 a pop as cockroach controllers.

We elected them.

Crooked AI controlling the vote tallies?

🪳 Give the cockroaches an inch, and they think they're a ruler! 🪳
