    Uh, Oh, I hope PETA didn’t see that.

    I like nature better when it’s outside.

    Very, very bad example to set for the kids. John should be ashamed of himself.

    There goes a potential butterfly.

    When I was 10 years old I found some white ants. I brought them in to our living room while my father was reading the paper and and said, “Daddy, I know there are black ant and red ants, but look, I found white ants.”

    My father spluttered, “Those are termites! Get those #$%% out of the house!”

    Does PETA care about bugs?

    Some parents are just not into entomology. Dad’s reaction does show a pretty strong background in etymology, though…

    And John is supposedly a dentist that looks into the mouths of people for a living?

    People For Eating Tasty Animals don’t care for caterpillars most places as they are not considered tasty only in a ve3ry few places is it an issue.

    Harry, you couldn’t have said it better. I was just going to post it on FB, especially after Gov. Christie killed the poor spider.

    Considering what lepidopterans do to plants, I’m not going to grieve when one is dispatched in a place it should not be. Some moths and butterflies are quite pretty, but if plants could talk…
    .
    Speaking of which, in the summers on the east side of the cascades, we normally have 1/2" metallic gold-colored moths near the end of july and start of august in middle elevations (I’ve seen them from 3600 to about 7500). Never could find them in a reference.

    @BenderSastre

    Yeah, they’re mad at Chris Christie for smacking a spider. Though I am a big supporter of People Eating Tasty Animals.

    in some countries, bugs are a delicacy… good source of protein ;) and @BenderSastre, yes PETA does care apparently.. remember how they went ape (no pun intended) over OBAMA in an interview when he swatted that fly? :)

    That was kind of a “girlie” reaction. I though only my wife reacted like that to creepie-crawlers.

    Lovely language, John, especially in front of the children.

    @Paul – Most insects don’t bother me, and my girls and I regularly rescue earthworms after a rainstorm. My 7 year old girl also likes to play with the live meal worms that I buy for the birds. I actually thought it was a “macho” reaction with the cussing, yelling and killing.
