Not that this has anything to do with anything, but this caught my eye.
From Wired.com, the Absurd Creature of the Week: a leech that – get this! – survives by sucking the blood from a hippopotamus’ ass.
Seems like that’s a metaphor for something.
Damned if I know what, though.
Maybe the Horde should have a say.
[Editor’s Note: I would not expect the Absurd Creature of the Week (ACOTW) to become a featured thing around here. This particular example, while more than sufficiently strange, seems like a better fit elsewhere. Just sayin’. – PK]
