If you've followed this blog every month, you'll know that Dave Barry is obsessed with fruit flies. Well, this month is no different, so the following is a funny excerpt from a Classic Dave Barry. Enjoy!
"According to a Reuters article, when a male fruit fly wants to have sex with a female fruit fly, he goes through a series of specific steps, the first one being to pound down approximately eight martinis. No, wait, that's what a human guy would do if her were going to attempt to mate with a female who had six legs and 17,000 eyeballs, which trust me is not out of the question for some guys, and you know who you are. What male fruit flies do is engage in a courtship ritual, which according to the article includes "tapping the female, extending and vibrating a wind, and "singing." (The article doesn't say what they sing, but I assume it's "Cant Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" by the late Barry White)."
Me again: I promise I won't ask about your mating ritual, but please leave a comment, anyway. :)
