Have you heard? Some guys have discovered several new species of slime-mold beetles (no, really, it gets better), and they have decided–are you ready?–to name some of them after Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. Swear to god in heaven. Unfortunatley, to quote the ARTICLE, “the decision to name three slime-mold beetles after Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld…didn’t have anything to do with physical features.” Of course, it doesn’t say the decision didn’t have anything to do with other choice Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld characteristics. Slime is slime, man.
One thought on “Slime”
I wonder if anyone thought to ask the slime-mold beetles if they would be offended by their new nomenclature.
When subsequent species of slime-mold beetle are discovered, I’d like to nominate Tom DeLay. Slime and politics: they just go together, no?
