    Don’t tell the MRAs about the parasitic barnacle and the male sheep crab, they’ll be screaming their heads off about MISANDRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

    Dark was the god that created such suffering. Why? Surely not to let it be a lesson unto us that we should fear it.

    “all of them of real, live, genuine zombified organisms”

    “real, live, genuine zombified”

    “live … zombified”

    A complete answer to: “Why shouldn’t God use evolution to create the beauty and diversity of the natural world we see around us?” *simper, simper*

    How long before we find out the parasitic organism responsible for #GamerGate???

    My guess is a computer virus but I could go with a physical one (Eric Frank Russell’s “3 to Conquer”).

    Which one is the thugs (sometimes called the “republicians”, “gop”, or other, less insulting, terms)?

  7. Trebuchet says

    The parasites living in my house control when I get up, when I take a nap, when I go to bed, when I open a cat food can….

    …when I open a cat food can

    What eats canned cat? Peas, for example, prefer them fresh. Mice aren’t really fond of them at all. And kraken just eat the entire house.

    Just watch out for the parasitic Ruffled Bed Mongoose.

    @weatherwax, 13

    Just watch out for the parasitic Ruffled Bed Mongoose.

    Pff, don’t be silly, there’s no such thing!
    Oh, hang on, what’s that under my bed? Brb, gonna check it out…….

    Plant galls don’t really belong – plants don’t have brains to succumb to the wiles of the parasite.

    The idea of the ladybug survivors is creeping me out. I wonder if they want to protect their “guest.”
