How is talking from one's butt news?

Some caterpillars essentially talk with their rear ends, scraping oar-like structures on leaf surfaces to signal turf ownership to intruders. Now researchers have found the butt-talking evolved from crawling behaviors.

Now if only some National Science Foundation research grants could be created to explore the bizarre nature of politicians and their communication habits since they have been talking from their asses since the beginnings of human civilization. I purpose that all elected officials be captured and tagged allowing an in-depth study on the nature of anal communications. I am sure that since this activity originated from crawling behavior that plenty of their more evolved predecessors can be found simply by looking under any slime covered rocks for comparative studies.

Beach, that's spooky. I posted a joke a short while ago with similar comments. :-)

P.s. I will catch up with your past two stories asap. Apologies.

rainboy said...

nice comparison.


sunshine said...

That's a good one Beach!
Laura loves it!

Where's The Boy's room??? :P
I was looking forward to some Teenage Tornado pictures!

But you can't hold a whole democracy responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole democratic system? And if the whole democratic system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our governmental institutions in general? I put it to you, Beach - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

sunshine said...

Wake me up when Randal finishes talking.. K?


Jack Jodell said...

:-) WOW, Beach---I never knew Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann had even evolved to the level of caterpillars yet! :-)

Rhiannon said...

Very good point! Those "Creepy crawlers"(politicians) really are slimy spooky beings!

Your so sunny at satire. Like I said BB you should write a column every day for a newspaper...well since "real live" newspapers will become extinct soon, maybe a "blog newspaper column"?

I think you should try and get together with the Daily show with John..and work something out?


Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Not to brag or anything, but I've been flushing most (Paul Tsongas and Warren Rudman, excepted) of their "communications" down the toilet for decades now. I've bought a lot of stock in "Lysol", too......P.S. I really like the irreverancy of your tone here. Try and keep up the good work, me-bucko.

Caterpillars, and Palins and Bachmann's oh my!!!

David: Just the natural world trying its best to keep up. No worries, but I would appreciate your input.

Rainboy: I hope the caterpillars are not upset.

Sunshine: I looked at the picture I took of my son's room and just could not stomach the possibility that with it being such a disaster Child Services might be called.

Randal: Yes, this is an indictment of our entire political system, culture, society, and the fact that I can not order a pizza and have it delivered in less than twenty minutes anymore. The world has gone to Hell in an official Martha Stewart hand basket and since Obama has killed the moon program, again, there is absolutely no way that I will be able to hit golf balls on the moon like Alan Sheppard did and that fact feels me with an uncontrollable rage to the point that I will now go downstairs and eat all the ice cream refrigerator leaving none for anyone else. After that to protest this sad state of affairs I will freely burp the alphabet all through the house. What was your point again? I got carried away.

Sunshine: Okay, we are both done.

Jack: Well, not really caterpillars, more like parasitical maggots.

Rhia: Actually I feel that I need to leave the country. Exile on some island away from the rest humanity would do me good.

Will: My sanity is entirely in question so its less be being irreverent and more avoiding becoming too fascinated with my belly button lent.

Madmike: Above I compared P and B to parasitical maggots, instead after thinking about it viruses come to mind.
