Dave Barry-- Sex and fruit flies

Hi everyone,
It's the 8th of the month,and it's time to share another hilarious Dave Barry excerpt--this one on sex and fruit flies. Hope you enjoy!

"Despite several million years of thinking virtually nonstop about sex, guys have made very little progress toward answering such basic questions about human sexuality as: How can you obtain more of it? How much talking is required? What is the role of jewelry? How important is the size of a guy's, um, car? For guys, these are uncharted waters. That's why I am so pleased by a recent Reuters article concerning research being done by scientists at Stanford University into the sex life of fruit flies. This research is significant because fruit flies have many biological similarities to humans. For example, both species eat fruit. The list goes on and on."

Me again: Are there any other similarities between males and fruit flies? :)

I know. Dave Barry is hilarious.

Both tend to circle around "something" ripe for the picking.

Both can be annoying when they do.

Both die quickly afterwards...

'nuff said.

Mona Risk said...

Yes, both can be a pain in the you-know-what. but Vonnie said it much, much better. LOL

So funny...Vonnie said it so well and only Dave Barry could get us laughing over something like a fruit fly...

Josie said...

Vonnie,
And don't forget the other similarity Dave Barry pointed out---they both love fruit! :)

Mona,
From what I've heard, your dh sounds wonderful. He is the farthest a man can get from being a pain.

Josie said...

Barbara,
So glad you're partial to fruit flies. The question is . . . why??

Josie said...

Paisley,
Lady garden is very clever.
