|What's up with the see-through head?|
Actually, this dude has its feeding tube clipped onto its chest where it can make sound vibrations to intimidate predators. Imagine your worst date ever serenading you by tongue-strumming his chest hairs!
If that doesn't scare the predator (or date) away, this insect will unclip the feeding tube and maneuver it to inject a dose of lethal saliva. Okay, stop thinking about that college boyfriend!
|That's a feeding tube/noise-maker/killing machine with its own carrying case.|
It's all enough to make raising three sons in a small condo seem positively tame, a mere walk down the block to 7-11. Speaking of which, this is an eighth birthday party with Slurpees before a performance of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". Those little guys could concoct vile flavor combos at 7-11, but they never hurt anybody!
I saw a peanut stand, heard a rubber band,
I saw a needle that winked its eye.
But I think I will have seen everything
When I see an elephant fly.
I heard a fireside chat, I saw a baseball bat
And I just laughed till I thought I'd die
But I'd be done see'n about everything
when I see an elephant fly
