Mormon Crickets Making a Comeback

What: Elko, NV experiences the annual onslaught of these grotesque insects resembling the "devil spawn of a cockroach and a grasshopper," in which tens of thousands of the alien-like beasts march through town, eating their own dead for nourishment and infiltrating bathtubs and bedrooms along the way.

Quote: "After millions of years of evolution, we can put a robot on Mars, fire undersea missiles at satellites, map the human genome and find Saddam Hussein, but we can’t stop the Mormon cricket."

Reaction: Maybe I should retitle my blog "The Mormon Crickets are Coming!"

  1. Haven't they heard of chocolate covered grasshoppers? How about deep fried nacho flavored? Come on food!
