    Perhaps it’s called a preying mantis because it preys on other insects (as well as their poor male mates).

    The last time we had a Boog story was during the Dick Tracy/Annie crossover and Jim always drew Annie in the background. We haven’t seen Annie in the background yet in this story.

    There was a teacher on Tuesday’s strip that looked like Annie. But now that I took a second look at her, she looks more like Shirley Feeney (Cindy Williams) from Laverne & Shirley. It appears that Jim are drawing characters from various classic TV shows! (uh, that’s speculation for now) We all like it when he brought back the late Frank Nelson in a few of those comedic Jack Benny-type story lines involving him and Walt Wallet at a department store.

    Boog, in the class, is sharing the fascinating world of
    entomology. Too bad the teacher never did it.

    Nope, it’s really spelled with an “a”. Boog is right. As I said several days ago, the one he has in a box is probably female, for just exactly the reason you mentioned.

    The females are always larger. Any one with a garden wants Preying Mantises there to eat the bugs they don’t want in their gardens. Also Lady bugs are carnivores too.

    There is also the monster film, “The Deadly Mantis” starring Dennis Hopper. -Kidding didn’t star him. It stars William Hopper.

    True: the females are bigger than the males. One that large is likely to be a “she”. BTW: be careful saying “praying” in a public school, Boog ;-)

    Right the PC police might take offense.

    Give it a rest, NO one prohibits the use of the word “pray” in a school.

    If you want to conduct a prayer service start or attend a private school that allows it!

    I would have expected “The Deadly Mantis” to star Grass Hopper!
