May 28, 2009: Carcoon

It took a while, actually quite awhile, but it was worth it.
You finally talked that object of your lust into going back to your place.
So hand in hand, you walk (float) back to your car, but when you turn the corner...






Quote:
The car was mistaken as food by spindle ermine larvae, which had already begun to strip a nearby tree of its leaves.
Spindle ermines weave silk webs to protect themselves from birds and wasps, allowing them to gorge on leaves for six
weeks before transforming into butterflies.
Cheer up, it'll only be six weeks, then you can impress your beloved with butterflies.

Transformation

Maybe in 6 weeks the car will be Ferrari

Silk webs don't protect them from my blowtorch.

Just tell her you practice safe parking. Gossamer thin, to give him maximum sensitivity, yet studded with larval bumps to give her blissful stimulation!

nom nom nom.... spindle ermine larvae nest soup.



TheMercenary  Thursday May 28 07:51 AM

Looks pretty nasty. Squirt some bug spray on that thing.



capnhowdy  Thursday May 28 08:12 AM

Would that enhance the flavor?



BobT  Thursday May 28 08:20 AM

How long did it take for that to happen?



classicman  Thursday May 28 08:37 AM

I could never get in that car again - I don't care how much you cleaned it ...
ewwwwwwwwwwwww



Undertoad  Thursday May 28 08:45 AM

This isn't insects! Didn't anyone see Invasion of the Body Snatchers?



Shawnee123  Thursday May 28 10:26 AM

Excuse me while I barf.

I could never get into that car again either.



Pie  Thursday May 28 02:30 PM

Apparently I do have an instinctive "killit Killit KILLIT" reaction to at least one species of insect.

Are they trying to make a silk purse out of a ... Honda? They can have the car, immediately and forever. YUCK.

Looks kinda like a Prelude, so yeah, a sow's ear 'bout covers it.


glatt  Monday Jun 1 01:25 PM

I'd take it. Even in its current state. I'd possibly even get a kick out of making it clean again. There would be dramatic before and after pictures there.



capnhowdy  Monday Jun 1 09:13 PM

I'm the kinda gut that would drive it thru town at least once, in its current state just for the hell of it.



Cyber Wolf  Tuesday Jun 2 12:12 PM

I have a tree in my backyard that looked just like that a few weeks ago. There were frequent short, sharp showers of caterpillars whenever the wind blew. It got so that one couldn't sit out on the deck on a nice day without getting caterpillars down the collar.



glatt  Tuesday Jun 2 12:28 PM

Choke cherry? The tent caterpillars love the choke cherry trees.

I'd take it too. Purely based on my circumstances.
But I would be awake for weeks in horror at the memory of cleaning it.


JuancoRocks  Wednesday Jun 3 01:01 AM

A car covered in spunk?.......



capnhowdy  Wednesday Jun 3 08:04 AM

Actually it's a CAR WIDE WEB.
