Bugs on the Web

You can buy ladybugs from Amazon.com. A 9000 count bag for only $20, which is pretty freaking good.

But as strange as that may seem, it's nowhere near as strange as the fact that you can sell your used ladybugs. Maybe Amazon's software doesn't have the ability to shut off the "sell yours here!" function for specific products, but the notion of used ladybugs is just plain creepy.

Wow, that's creepy. That would be a hell of a raw material for revenge, though... don't piss me off, or you'll find 9,000 ladybugs in your car! Muahahahaah!

That's not nearly as creepy as the praying mantis egg cases they have for sale. At least in my opinion, mantids are more frightening looking (hence all those classic B-movies where gigantic insects -- and not a bunch of sissy ladybugs -- attack innocent American cities).

Each egg case contains 200 baby mantids, 6 egg cases for $20... Heck, that's even better than ladybugs for unsuspecting victims, since they'd continue to hatch over time and new ones would keep showing up!
