Or, with the pop music of the modern day:
“They see me rollin’… they hatin’…”

Greetings PZ Myers,
I stumbled across a post of yours from last year titled: “Bob Enyart and Will Duffy, partners in idiocy” but I cannot comment so I thought I’d drop you a line here. I am a former member of that church and decided to write a post in agreement with you on your honest assessment of Bob & Will. Here it is =>
TRUTH from an Atheist – And I Couldn’t Agree More…
“Why do you have to lie and mislead and conceal on the little, trivial things? Why hide the fact that you have a vested interest in Enyart’s show, and are actually deeply involved in the program? I see that, and right away, I know I’m dealing with a shameless liar for Jesus.
And then, of course, there’s the raving insanity…”
And if these men will lie and mislead and conceal on the little, trivial things…just imagine what else they are trying to hide??? It’s coming….shameless LIARS!
“But the lips of a FOOL shall swallow him up; The words of his mouth begin with foolishness, And the end of his talk is RAVING MADNESS. A FOOL also multiplies words. No man knows what is to be…” – Ecclesiastes 10:12-14
There’s more to be revealed soon…

I can’t stand dung beetles. I’m just put off by their shit-eating grins.

“Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ in a dungpile”
“Pooride. Take it easy”
I’m sure I could come up with more, but I’m lazy and unimaginitive this morning.

Dmanit, ‘Tis, you beat me to it! (in #8). I, too, hate their shit-eating grins.
(And how does an animal with mandibular mouth-parts grin?)

Just in: Dung beetle tops Santorum in latest poll.

In honor of Gingrich’s recent election victory? Seems apt.

I saw a t shirt somewhere that had a dung beetle with “That’s how I roll” on it…somewhere. I meant to go back and get one, but I didn’t bookmark it, and I couldn’t remember which site.

If anyone would like some informative AND gut-bustingly hilarious reading on the dung beetle, I highly recommend the relevant chapter in Ralph Lewin’s Merde: Excursions in Scientific, Cultural, and Socio-Historical Coprology.

What I like about dung beetles is the Egyptian mythology. Other cultures imagined a shining chariot: the Egyptians saw a shining ball rolling across the sky, observed dung beetles rolling their balls, and concluded that a giant, holy dung beetle was rolling their sun every day. Ta-da! Holy scarabs.

I couldn’t help but think of this.
Soul Coughing. Rolling. not my favorite song, but there you go.

Dung beetles? They don’t hold a candle to carrion beetles!!
Sorry I don’t have one in the process of actually doing what they do best. We used them to clean up the skeletal remains of our roadside collections in zoology lab.

Is this the one?
