Bug without head: Oh, great. There goes THAT exemption. Thanks a lot, honey.
Bug on right: BURP!
She claimed it herself.
If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you …Oh well, maybe not.
I think she ate his head. The burp just might be a clue.
Taking head; it’s the opposite of….well you know.
Oooh, I hate when that happens.
It actually is pretty rare in the wild. It’s just common in captivity, where the male can’t get away as easy.

@Bobarion, my thought exactly. The only two things you can’t evade forever.
I had a grd level entomology class a few years ago, the prof told us that male Mantids don’t usually “complete their task of copulating” if his head is still attached, so female mantids know to eat the heads of their mates.
Talking without a head is as weird as it gets.
