Save the flies

Ah, thank Jesus.

The Idiot spent some time in Hawaii recently, and the whole time, something seemed wrong. Couldn’t put my finger on it, things were just off. I now know what it is, and through the grace and wisdom of the U.S. government, the problem is on its way to being solved.

The problem: there aren’t enough flies.

Okay, it’s not just that there are no flies. It’s that there aren’t enough Hawaiian picture-wing flies.

If that sentence didn’t send a shiver up your spine, then you’re not paying enough attention.

Hawaii is running out of PICTURE-WINGS, PEOPLE!!!

But fear not, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is on it. The big news is that last week they put 12 species of Hawaiian picture-wings on the endangered species list. That’s right, 12 species of picture-wings. That means there’ll be protection for the flies with one dot on each wing, the fly with a swirly thing, that one with the stripe inside the stripe...

Anyway, THANK GOD! If my tax money is going to be put toward something, I think it should be the picture-wings. All 12 of them. And don’t think it’s weird that every fly with any tiny difference gets its own species. It’s a little known fact that every human with a different mole is considered a different species. Some of which are, by the way, on the Endangered Species list.

It’s about time. This only came about after a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity in Arizona, accusing the administration of being in violation of the Endangered Species Act. “The Hawaiian picture-wings are one of our most important endemic invertebrates in Hawaii,” said Brent Plater, the Center’s staff attorney.

And don’t you know it.

According to chaos theory, if a butterfly flaps its wings in Singapore, it causes a storm in Kansas. It’s possible that the flapping of millions of picture-wings in Hawaii could cause a surge in hurricanes here in the U.S.

Wait a second...

On second thought, kill the f*ckers.
