Mosquitoes Are Going Vegeterian

I was supposed to throw my yogurt cup away and wash my spoon when I was done with it. It didn't work out that way and I continued staring at my computer screen. I left both yogurt cup and a spoon directly in front of my computer screen on the table. 10 minutes had passed by and I was still staring at my computer screen.

I took a quick glance at my empty yogurt cup and a dirty spoon feeling regret for my laziness and sensing unwillingness to follow up with my tradition of thrash disposal and dish sanitation. What I then saw was nothing short of amazing. It was so amazing that I didn't think anything of it at a first glance. In other words, it was unbelievable!!!

YOU DON"T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MOSQUITOES ANY MORE

They are changing their diet.

This little guy or a girl was sucking on a little piece of yogurt that was on the spoon. Yes Indeed!!!...And not only that, but I tried to wave it away from the spoon by making threatening hand movements in that sucker's direction and that little sucker just continued sucking on that yogurt like there was no 3 days from now.

Please don't tell me that it was not a mosquito. I know what mosquitoes looks like.

In other words, they REALLY like the stuff and I so honored to bring you this news.

NO MORE MOSQUITO BITES

THEY ARE INTO YOGURT NOW.

Did you know that the little critters that make yogurt out of milk are animals and not plants, nor fungus?

Male mosquitoes are nectar sipping pollinators. Females seek out blood to nourish their brood.

Mosquitoes changing their diet from blood to yogurt would be like humans changing their diet from meat to vegetables.

It was kind of a weak metaphor that I didn't think through so much and the first thing that popped into my brain.

Would "mosquitoes are going dairy" be a better title?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Trrivia point: Male mosquitoes are vegan. Females are the bloodsuckers.

The misquotes around here are large enough to bugger a chicken while standing flatfooted.
