Entomological Jealousy

A few days ago I did a post about lightning bugs (or fireflies, depending on what you want to call them).
I've been informed that fireflies CAN control their flashes, and that it appears to be related to mating.
This reminds me of something that happened in my bathroom recently.
(No, keep reading, stick with me here)
I was sitting there, doing my business, when I saw two fireflies on the wall right next to me, and they were hooked together, back to back. It was the strangest thing. Joined together, almost if they were... were having.....
**POW!!!**
I instantly smashed them with my closed fist.
And I heard myself mutter the following:
"If I don't get to have any, YOU don't get to have any."

Y'see, it's been 12 years, and.... well...

So how come when I stick this light bulb in MY various orifices, I can't make it light up, no matter how much I want to mate?

I hope you don't see any doggies in that position while you're driving....

Lynda said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA! That is funny.

Though, I can't condone insecticide. I just can't....

You aren't Uncle Fester
that's why.:)

Michael said...

Okay, the light bulb in orifices is a mental image that is sticking around a while, it won't go away, why why.

Meloncutter said...

Are you using compact florescent, regular bulbs, neon or those long florescent lights?

It could be since it's been so long that you need a jump start. A twelve volt battery and a set of jumper cables can be obtained at the local auto parts store. If you need further instruction as to which nipple is positive or negative, they also may have instruction manuals.

Just trying to help.

Later Y'all

That's it, I'm turning you in to PETI. Yeah, that's right. Then I'm going to report you for immediate membership into the MGF club. It's a group called Must Get F...well, you get the idea.

Desert Songbird said...

No sex in 12 years? Gee, if I didn't know better, I'd think you were married...

Steven said...

Ooooo...I just heard you on The Mo Show! Great names!!!

Janna said...

Morgen: Since when do you have sympathy for bugs and dogs?

Lynda: Insecticide is something I do on an almost daily basis. And I enjoy every moment of it. Lousy six-legged bastards...

Michele: LOL! I thought about that while I was writing the post!

Michael: Why fight it? Just go ahead and let your mind wander...

Meloncutter: The guy at the auto parts store looked at me really funny when I asked about that.

Steve: PETI... lol... "People for the Ethical Treatment of Insects"?? Keep dreaming. :)
I would love to join the MGF club, though...
Glad you listened to The Mo Show!

Desert Songbird: LOL! I just don't understand that whole phenomenon!

You have a lot of bugs in your house. Do you not have any windows?

Marilyn said...

Bug sex makes more bugs... You did the right thing.

Morgen said...

mr Fab -- oh she has windows, it seems the screens seem to be lacking, eh?!?

janna -- I find insects fascinating. I coulda been an entymologist. I still can tell a lepidoptera from an hymenoptera.
As for the dogs -- well, I'm a cat person, but I still don't want to see you running over a couple of doggies in the Jannamobile just 'cuz they're makin' puppies...

bundle-o-contradictions said...

...and Hubby thinks he's got it bad because he hasn't had any in a couple of days! Oh, and KILL ALL CREEPY CRAWLIES!! For that, you are my hero!

metalmom said...

Janna, Janna, Janna.....*sigh*
What are we gonna do with you?

Janna said...

Mr. Fab: I live out in the country. There are a lot of bugs here. They find ways to get in. (*shrug*)

Marilyn: Exactly!

Morgen: I never open the screenless windows, so that's not how the bugs get in. I think they all just ZOOM in the front door whenever I open it. They must wait there patiently all day for the right moment...

Bundle: A couple DAYS??? Tell your hubby to stop complaining or else I will come over there and punch him.

Metalmom: Um.... adore me?

Wayne said...

Your right janna, they DO wait hiding by the door, waiting ever so patiently.....

Janna said...

Wayne: You've noticed that too, huh?
