Funny Friday

There is something both bizarre and amusing about the concept of a dung beetle, a beetle that feeds partly or exclusively on feces. Many dung beetles, known as rollers, roll dung into round balls, which are used as a food source or brooding chambers. Other dung beetles, known as tunnelers, bury the dung wherever they find it. A third group, the dwellers, neither roll nor burrow: they simply live in manure. And yet this insect that eats and lives in crap is also currently the only insect known to navigate and orient themselves using the Milky Way. Go figure.

So guess what the Funny Friday theme is?

Limerick Spot . . .

There was a young girl from Darjeeling
Who could dance with such exquisite feeling
Not a murmur was heard,
Not a sound, not a word,
But the fly-buttons hitting the ceiling.
