From Yahoo! News:

"PALOMINO VALLEY, Nev. - Swarms of Mormon crickets are marching across the West, destroying rangeland and crops, slickening highways with their carcasses and leaving disgusted residents in their wake. 'It's yucky,' said Amy Nisbet of Elko in northeast Nevada, where this year crickets made their first appearance in recent memory. 'You drive down the street and they pop like bubble wrap.'"

Is there a Queen Cricket? Or is it truly like the Mormons: Multiple Ovipositors = Arthropod Polygamy?

Now that school is out, the kids will be playing with the Mormon Crickets like daddy's unused e-bay bubble wrap, but this time they'll be gleefully spraying bug guts all over the living room!

I saw that article and wondered if it would find its way to Cyburbia. So what's next, Unitarian locusts? Presbyterian moths? I might make a suggestion to Stardarcy, but then s/he has been a good sport about my repeated calls for a disaster.

Well, if the disaster has any connection to Cyburbia, it ought to be the full wrath of God.
