Batten the hatches! Our Doom is here!

Batten the hatches! Our Doom is here!

That is, if local blogs are to be believed. Not war, cockroaches. It seems like there’s always someone who chimes in to say how mighty, how great and powerful that creepy insect is. Us puny humans don’t stand a chance against such a superior life form. The usual reason being that they can survive a nuclear fallout without a scratch or melt.

And then someone will talk about the great feats of endurance a cockroach went through on the way from the drainpipe to the shower. We humble meatbags cannot compare to the towering feat of evolution that is the cockroach. We will conveniently discard the fact that they are the size of the average toe.

So, Mr. Roach, you think you’re so high and mighty? Well, we won’t bend to your whims anymore! Though we might cringe at the thought of touching you with our slippers, we can still squash you like, well, a bug. How many roaches do you know who’ve assembled a nuclear warhead? Can they even SPELL nuclear warhead? Forget that, do they know what letters are? No, they’re stupid insects! So what if they can shed their skins? We have GTA! Even better, everyone I know has a slipper! And last time I checked, that was the leading cause of death among roaches. What human do you know who would DIE from a slipper unless it was made of lead?

Roaches are stupid.

Will a roach realize I said they’re stupid? No, because it’s a dumbass. So stop treating them like a fire breathing leper colony or something.

    But it is a lonely road I take…

    Nah, they just have action and reaction. Mere basic efficiency. They’re so simple it’s easy to live.

    Glad you had fun reading it. And yeah, I read something like that too, but if it’s been in my drainpipe, there’s no way in hell I’m letting it near me!

    Uh… kinda off topic, but I recently had the (mis)fortune to accidentally consume a piece of cockroach wing, buried deep inside a bun I got from the office canteen.

    I agree, they’re a bunch dumbasses.
