Welcome to another edition of Things-that-make-you-go-hmmm-Thursdays!
So I was watching TV the other day and happened to hear an insect exterminator commercial (Won’t mention the company name. My influence is far too great. This blog reaches 1’s of 10’s of people) talking about how ants and other insects will excrete a trail of some kinda substance so other’s of their ilk can find their way to whatever booty they’ve discovered (those sour patch kids in the bottom of your purse, the apple core that your son cleverly stuffed between the couch cushions). Their philosophy: It aint no fun if the homies can’t have none.
Now animals and humans have a lot of commonalities. We’re both fiercely protective of our young, we both hunt and gather and hibernate in the winter. But if we humans ever adopted this practice from the insect/animal kingdom it wouldn’t be pretty. In fact it’d look a little something like this:
OMG Cheryl! I just caught the cutest pumps on sale at DSW©! Just follow my trail of pee and it’ll lead you right to ’em!!
Ay dawg! They got Assassin’s Creed III© on sale at GameStop©! If you hurry you can catch the fart—or expelled flatus as my aunt would say (told ya it was tasteful)—trail I left for you!
No bueno. I’m just sayin.
