Praying mantis

Long after his head, torso, & prayerful forelegs have fallen prey to her ravenous love-bites, the male mantis stays joined to the female & continues to pump, automatic as a Tibetan prayer wheel: OM the jewel in the heart of the lotus. OMG.

  1. Did you read how Angler fish conceive? You must have.

    Does the she mantis shriek “Off-with-his-head!” Of does she begin with a caress?

  2. Angler fish… are those the ones where the male basically disintegrates except for his sex organs? Yeah. I don’t know what the protocols are for mandid mate cannibalism.
